    I have a new Dell D3218HN monitor running on windows 7. When I raise the brightness/contrast menu, I can't navigate it. What do I do? What keys do I use on the keyboard?
    There are barely visible up and down buttons, apparently, on the bottom of the bezel, but they are useless. I've watched a few videos where they adjust the brightness, but don't show how they do it.
    The manual tells you what to do but not how to do it.
    I need step by step instructions.

    I am Hopefully Grateful.

    To SpywareDr:
    I used the little buttons to get the menu. What do I do next to navigate?
    To Lynx1021:
    I have installed the driver.

    I appreciate your reply, but how physically step by step do I navigate? The cursor won't work.

    Press the leftmost button on the monitor (which is button "1" in the instructions) to bring up the OSD (On Screen Display) Menu. Press the next button to the right ("2") to scroll down the Menu, or the next button to right of that one ("3") to scroll up the Menu. When you are on the option you want to change, press the next button to the right of that one ("4") to confirm your selection. When done getting everything setup, press the leftmost button ("1") do turn off the monitor's OSD Menu.

    How do you scroll on the menu to, say, change the brightness or the contrast? My cursor doesn't work on the menu and I can't figure out what keys to use.

    Button 2 to scroll down,
    button 3 to scroll up,
    button 4 to make the selection.

    Use button 1 to open the OSD Menu, use buttons 2 and 3 to scroll Up or Down to highlight Brightness, then use button 4 to select it.

    Now use buttons 2 and 3 to scroll the brightness Up or Down.

    Do the same for Contrast ... and for whatever else might be in there.

    Aha! I knew it was some simple thing. Try to find it in the manual though.

    So thank you very very much.

    You're more than welcome. (y)

    The OSD instructions start on page 11 (of the manual I linked to above).
