Cant brighten monitor..wont go up higher too dark

Answers :

Sometimes monitors, specially CRTs suffer from a certain condition, where the contrast and bright diminishes gradually this is indicative that the monitor is broken. If you want to increase the image clarity got to the graphics card control center.
It should be on your task-bar. From there select monitor, image or color and adjust the slider: "gamma contrast to where you like". Note that this wont affect 3d applications or movies.If you want to change that as well theres another option for that too.
This is works with ati, Nvidia, and intel's graphics cards, not sure about others.
