Help omg!!

I was playing WoW and got up for a second, my brother came and messed with the video settings and changed the gamma. Now my entire screen is physcadelic and I cant change it in any way. Please help!

Edit: also affects my bios screen, but how could It have done something to my monitor?

Do you know how he changed the gamma? as in physically with the monitor's buttons? or with Windows settings?

If you play WoW you get an options menu for video, and he changed it there. Its a laptop monitor and therefore has no buttons.

tried that, but I went into control panel searched it for "gamma" And came up with some truetype font stuff, clicked display and clicked calibrate colors. I made it.... sortof look better. But its still reaaaaaaaaaaalllly bright at the top.

Highly doubt it.. some setting somewhere on your laptop should fix it..
