Windows 7: My monitor looks like its got sunglasses on

My monitor looks like its got sunglasses on

I have an Acer x193w monitor. And the brightness is dull.

This morning I noticed a message something like Nvidea has recovered from an error or something like that.

Pressing the adjust button I cannot access the display panel with mouse or cursor to adjust.

How can I adjust brightness?

Hello AaLF,

In addition, you could also use OPTION TWO or OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to adjust your screen brightness. It's the same in Windows 7.

Screen Brightness - Adjust in Windows 8

Hope this helps,
