Having problems with your Gateway Profile 5 PC Desktop ?

Washed out monitor when viewing most web pages

\015 My gateway profile 5 LCD 15" monitor appears washed out. Seems worse when viewing web pages like this one. I'm looking at this screen on a dell desktop at the same time. On the dell I see all of the screen details. on the gateway profile 5, I can't see the light blue box surrounding this problem description box, I can't see the box surrounding the "Pick one" select a category box. I have to hover my mouse over most screen input fields and start clicking or tabing to find the "invisible" fields. The montior displays things like pictures and movies and win xp screens normally. I've tinkered with all of the controls for brightness and contrast on the front of the LCD. Thanks in advance for your help.\015
