Thank you for your query

To rule out vga card issue, please can you try plugging the monitor into another PC, if it works in there then it is your vga card at fault and this will need to be replaced.

I f however the moniotr does not improve then im afraid your monitor is faulty, when the monitors go dim it is genrally the inverters that are faulty

Please book the monitor in for repair/replacement

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank you again

Brightness/Contrast Adjustment After a partial blank screen event (probably caused by my computer), I cannot adjust the brightness or contrast using the monitor controls. Previously the display had been adusted to allow me to manipulate and then print images with accurate colour, brightness and contrast results. The display now has a washed out appearance and I have had to darken my standard test image to get it to appear correctly on screen.

I have a new-to-me Dell LCD monitor, passed on to me by my husband, who has no instructions for it. All my images are printing too dark and with too much contrast, and I am unable to adjust the contrast from the controls at the foot of the screen. When I press the contrast bar I get a screen that shows both brightness and contrast adjustments, but I can only access the brightness control. Are there basic instructions available for how to navigate the adjustment bars? Thanks, Janet
