Windows 7: Brightness level

@ johnny20. Brightness level is very much a user preference & most video graphic programs have different methods of setting brightness & contrast. So use settings that suit you best rather than copying someone else.

Windows Updates do include some updates to graphics programs if they are available. In the past I have had my NVIDIA drivers updated via Windows Updates & have not noticed any changes in the colour or brightness.

Most Windows updates are for security, but some cover software & driver updates from other makers.

Here are 2 screenshots of my desktop. Something is definitely wrong, isn't it? Look at the differences. These were taken seconds apart.

One thing to try.................
go into color management
search box -> color management
You should see a list of ICC profiles
The best default (unless you calibrate your own monitor) is sRGB IEC61966-2.1
Some default monitor profiles are rubbish which may be your issue??
To add the sRGB profile if it isn't there tick "use my settings for this device" and then hit the Add button. Look through the list and select the sRGB IEC61966-2.1. This will be then added to your ICC profile list. Click on it and hit "set as default profile". Just take note of what the default profile was before and you can go back to it if you want.

As stated before you should be able to tweak you monitor to your brightness/contrast using its manual controls.

Thank you, I went where you said and this is what I found. This is a laptop I have had for many years and never had a problem until now when I upgraded from Vista to 7.

I looked at your specs and thought you were talking about a desktop. You have a post that say you are talking about a "Toshiba A355 Centrino Core Duo 4GB RAM laptop". Some one familiar with this laptop may be better able to help.

But you can try what I suggested above when you are in the devices tab - you need to select use my settings for the add button to be active. At the moment there are no profiles in the list. Add the srgb profile and set it as default. If you like you can always select it and remove to be back where you started.
