Windows 7: display not bright enough

display not bright enough

Seven Forums,

I think I have asked this question before, and have tried some of the suggested solutions, however I still have the problem, which may not ever be resolved.

I have Macular DeGeneration which causes my vision to require a lot of light or a high degree of darkness of the text and a light background to read. Example this text I am using now for this message is ok as long as I have increased the side of this display to about 2.5 times the size of the normal screen which increases the text size a lot. Trying to read email requires the magnifier option provided with Win 7 Pro, In Windows Live Mail I cannot increase the size of the windows as you can do on the Web, In talking about Windows Live Mail if I am looking at new mail which allways comes in bold I can see just infe whitout increasing the size of the font.. High contrast text makes much better reading, windows 7 Pro is much worse than XP.

Any Ideas. I bought a Video card to try, did not realy help, Increased the dots per inch that worked ok except it fouls up Expression Web 4 what I use to keep web sites up to date, It just looks to me like this, example if a person would restrict a light bulb to be lit 100% would be bright, 40% would be very dim, that looks to me like the problem in order to reduce current.

Any Ideas.

entering POWER OPTIONS in a win 7 Pro search box lower left of a page in about the same thing as clicking the COMPUTER link in thre right hand column clicking the Globe srart point, with nothing in the task bar acroos the bottom of the screen.

Normaly placing a search entry in the search box lower left of a page near the bottom will produce places to look in the column immediately above the search box.

Too bright white
Hello everyone. I have a small problem when it comes to the intensity of the white colour in Windows 7. As it currently stands after tweaking the contract and brightness settings it is bearable, however, the downside is that my contract is undesirable low and that most colours are now too dark....
