Post Got a new monitor. Overly bright!

So I got a new monitor yesterday, a Samsung SyncMaster BX2440 24'' LED, and this thing is WAY to bright! I've tried adjusting the brightness, gamma and contrast and I can't find a happy medium.

If I get it dark enough where it isn't killing my eyes the text becomes unreadable and very blurry. If I bring the settings up to fix the text, it's too bright. I just can't get it right.

White is just to white and makes everything look washed out.

What setting can fix this washed out problem?

Don't put the contrast at max (60-70%)
Let the gamma at 0 (don't know how it is calculate on your screen)
And bring down the brightness, take it down till you feel comfortable.

That's the kind of thing you really need to test to find the good setting.

Also, check is your graphic card manager (catalyst for ati and the other for nvidia (don't know the name)) are well configure for your need.

Hi,

May I ask what kind of cable are you using now? VGA d-sub or DVI? Try to use a DVI cable first if you haven't. Sometimes it's the cable causing these kind of issues. Hope this works for you.


Good luck!

currently using the dvi cable it came with. I tried switch cables, no go.

Looks like I'm sending it back. I used a program called Dark Screen which makes the screen go as dark as it can, and the bottom half of my screen was still bright and washed out looking.

Guess I'm off to contact Newegg.

Could be defective, that monitor shouldn't be that bright according to the (actual) contrast ratio...

Seems to me like you have a defective monitor, contacting newegg would be the best solution especially since their customer service is impeccable. Post back if when you have the new monitor.
