I have an issue. I have a Samsung T220 LCD monitor that is currently connected to my PC via VGA. Whenever I go to a website that has a white background (Google, etc), it seems as if the brightness is cranked way too high and the links are not visible.

I have tried using the Samsung MagicTune, no luck. I also tried hitting 'reset' in menu, no luck. I also tried reducing the brightness to "0", nothing.

Any ideas? Could this be a 'gamma' issue? Thanks.

I had an old Samsung TFT that had a similar issue.

That monitor had not only the regular settings, but was divided among 4 "quick menus" as well, called menu -> display -> 'cinema' / 'automatic' and 2 others I can't remember, it turned out those quick-settings where of FAR MORE influence that the manual settings, especially towards brightness / gamma.

Hope it helps, good luck,

Are you using an AMD graphics card?

I also noticed the individual color settings (Red, Green, Blue) can go a long way, in the case you're still with us...

You could try installing these NVIDIA drivers for your card. They're circa 2005 which are the latest for your video card. If your video card is capable of adjusting the monitor brightness then those drivers should be able to do it. If you're already running drivers from NVIDIA then uninstall them first, and then install these new drivers.

Click the icon at the very right of the panel and select System Settings.

In the Hardware section, click Power Management.

Adjust the Set display brightness slider to a comfortable value.
