i just got a new sycmaster 170mb monitor and one day just after isabel (hurricane) hit the surge protector protected my computer and monitor.

weeellllll, when i turned it back on, the screen had a definitely darker look to it. like the bright had been turned to zero. and even at 100% brightness, it still looks like it is at only 30 or 40%. i can tell this because the syncmaster has a built in tv tuner and the tv looks sooooo bright compared to what is on the screen (what ever i am working on on the computer at the time vs. pip) i tried reloading the calibration tool that came with it but it still looks horrible.

should i just take it in to get serviced or can anyone suggest a fix that i am missing. (as in: is it some program putting on the dim and blocking the bright on my computer?)

You should see if you could try it with a different PC or video card before blaming the monitor. It may be your video card that's causeing the problem. Also, check the display properties and see if there are color profiles you can apply that may make a difference.

Try adjusting the contrast control also. That can have a big affect on brightness.
