I don't konw what it is about this monitor, but the colors are really dark. The different font colors for my instant messaging all look the same, and also as in I can't see pictures worth $#!+. I've tried adjusting all the brightness/contrast and all that stuff, but to no avail. Just wondering if anyone knows if there's anyting else I can try to adjust to make things more visible or if I need a new monitor. Any help or suggestions would be really appreciated. If you need any more information about the problem, just let me know. Thanx so much in advance.
