    Good morning:

    I have a Dell computer with windows XP. The external controls for brightness and contrast on my monitor are maxed out. I remembered from windows 98 that there is a program one can go into to further adjust these settings. Does XP have such a feature? If so how do I go about finding that and getting into this program? I would appreciate any help that someone might give me.

    Thanks, larry_373

    Hi larry373!

    Check that you have the lastest driver for your video card.
    Also see if there is any software on the internet that may be specific to your monitor.

    Depending on the manfacturer of your card, you may be able to access extra video settings as follows;

    Right-Click a blank area of the Desktop.
    Select 'Properties'
    Click 'Settings'
    Click 'Advanced'

    I believe some video cards also extend the "Display" Control Panel with additional features.
