i have my monitor brightness on fully with the physical buttons on the monitor but i still find that when i view videos it's very dim. Is there any other way of making my monitor brighter? I see in properties/settings/advanced/monitor there is a frequency setup would this help? I have windows 2000 pro.

Thank you

What do you have your contrast set to? And is it a CRT monitor or an LCD?

If the system that old then you have a CRT monitor. Try adjusting the contrast and reducing the brightness It may well be on it's last legs - if the above doesn't work then it may be time to get a new one.

If only videos are dark, you may want to see if the software you are using to play them has its own brightness and contrast settings. Example of video settings in WMP shown in attachment.
