I have a Dell Dimension 4100, W2K, with a Dell M780 monitor. Yesterday the screen resolution got very dark. I checked all the settings - both manual and through display settings plus have reloaded the monitor driver but nothing seems to help. I've also hooked another monitor up and the same thing happens. I was able to lighten it enough to be able to read the screen (through the manual settings on the monitor) but this is only a temporary fix. Could this be the video card?

Thanks!

my first guess would be that you need a new video card since the same result happend with 2 different monitors
