    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!

    Depends on your graphics hardware.
    There may a control panel installed specifically for the graphics
    where you can adjust the gamma and brightness levels.

    And if there isn't a special control panel, take a look around and see if you can find one for your graphics card. With modern versions of Windows, it is easy to use a graphics card without using the vendor's utilities, but if you install them, you'll get greater control over your graphics subsystem.
