    Hi! I have an ASUS VS238 monitor. I'm trying to change the brightness settings---way to bright. I push the contrast/brightness button on the bottom of the monitor and a little box pops up with brightness. I click on the up/down buttons on my keyboard and nada. Nothing happens. After a few seconds the box disappears. I've tried using the cursor, but as soon as it tries to enter the brightness box it disappears. I've tried the menu button, and the up down buttons don't work, but if I push the menu button again, it drops down to standard. I push the button again, and I get a box asking yes or no. It's set on no. I push again and it returns to standard, push again and I'm in a back and forth loop. How do I get the buttons to work? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You need to use the buttons on the monitor itself to adjust the brightness, not your keyboard or mouse.

    I can't see a Asus VS238 monitor, but I can see a VS238H-P

    If thats the monitor you have, you need to press the button with the ☼▲ (should be third from the left, to the right of the menu key). This will bring up the brightness settings on the OSD. Then use the ☽▼ button (should be 5th from the left, to the left of the menu key) to lower the brightness.
