Hello, I've a Sony G500 21" and the brightness is very high even though I have it turned all the way down via the monitor controls, a normal black screen has a white haze all over. I had to jack up the contrast to almost max to have a veiwable image and forget about moving the brightness up, yeesh!

This appears to be a monitor issue and not a video card/driver issue because the brightness problem exists even when the computer is off.

Is there anything I can do about this? and how much would it cost to fix?

thanks for any help

Usually the sub screen control inside the monitor itself needs to be adjusted shouldn't be to expensive to fix, make sure you take it into a sony authorised service center tho'
