    Is there a way to adjust the brightness of my monitor other than using the Menu/Controls that are on the monitor (using a SyncMaster 172n). I calibrate my monitor using Pantone Huey, having set the brightness / contrast both to zero, but it is still too bright.

    I went through the Control Panel > Display settings but didn't see anything. Maybe it's hidden somewhere?

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to help me!

    Try changing the brightness with your graphics card software.

    right click desktop, select properties
    choose display setting
    click on advanced setting
    navigate to the tab that correspond to your graphic card
    usualy then will have a control panel setting button which you can go into and change display
