I was donated a Gateway EV 910 monitor, a 19 inch model.
I used a standard HD 15, m/m, cable between the monitor and my CPU and the image on the monitor was VERY dark.
I adjusted brightness and contrast to their max settings and the image on the monitor did not change at all.
Do I not have the proper installation and/or hardware? Is this just an old monitor? (i.e., going bad, possibly the reason it was donated?)
Since I don't know my way into this problem very far, I really don't know what other info to supply. It's an Athlon XP 2600+, 1.92 GHz processor, a home build which has never given me any trouble. The monitor I use now is bright and clear.
Thanks to whoever knows the answer on this one.
