    you may want to check the control panel of your video card, there you can change several display settings

    if not, try updating drivers like mentioned ^

    Ok, that was my FX5500 card display just to give you an idea what to look for on yours. When I right click on my desktop I get the "NVidia" link to click that brings up the pixs you saw of the Contrast ect ect settings.. http://www.pixpond.com/1/12b0xrj.jpg Do you have anything like that on yours ?
