Seconded! The hp CRT monitor that came with my current PC started going bad quite a while ago... it was far too dark, even with everything turned up. This monitor I have had since, like, 1998 is still as good as it was the day we got it, and it doesn't even have a brand name.Latios said:Oh. Personal experience -> HP monitors suck. You should send it back to HP if they have that service and get a new monitor. Because really, I don't know how to solve a monitor problem, and I know HP monitors are a bit poorer in quality than others.
The button on your monitor? A magnet wouldn't cause the menu to pop up though, it can make a weird line across the monitor but not change the brightnessUltimate said:its not the button its the monitor my friend said is it cause of the speakers beside my monitor or a magnet he said
