    I used to have windows 95 running on my comp. I have a very crappy monitor and it tends to be too dark and too blue most of the time. When I got the comp, it was from my friend, who'd reformatted before giving it to me. I had to manually adjust the colors, through the display settings. The little box with the picture of the girl, and you move the sliders around till the color is right.
    Well about 2 years ago I got it reformatted again, this time with Win98. And that option seems to not exist anymore. I go to Display>Settings>Advanced but there's only the color profiles box. I had thought maybe this was just how win98 was, until I was messing with my friends comp, running win98 also, and found the option on hers.

    I've tried to figure out why hers has it and mine doesn't and I'm stumped. I've also posted about this before but noone seemed to notice.

    Can someone PLEASE help? My monitor is so dark I have to highlight text on pages just to read it most of the time, and it really effects my work as a graphic artist...

    The problem with that is that my monitor has only 2 buttons on it to adjust the brightness/contrast and they truly don't effect it much. I need to figure out why I don't have that option to adjust the colors through the display settings. Is it a problem with my copy of win98, did it install it differently than it did on my friends comp, is it something I can download?
