How to turn down brightness/contrast for windows 7?

Hey, I'm using 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium on a desktop PC. I have already turned down the brightness and contrast to 0 by the screen settings but my eyes still hurt. Is there any other way I can turn down the brightness further?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Zukias welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can do it one of two ways. The first is Windows itself,

Display Color Calibration

The second is through the control panel for your graphics card which should be accessible by right clicking on the desktop. If it isn't there is should be in the Start menu, that or you don't have the driver installed and are running on the default driver installed by Windows.

The display color calibration told me to use the buttons on my monitor to turn the brightness down, but turning all the colours to 0 on the 'adjust colour balance' section made the display darker
Thanks for the advice!

Actually a new problem has occurred now. When you hover over text, the cursor changes to the "I" symbol (as it should), but it is now white, not black. This is very annoying when using visual C++ since it's an "I" in the whole window and I can't see where my mouse is to edit code (which i am constantly doing in VC++). :/ Any idea's?
