Laptop Hooked to 17" Flat Screen Monitor

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?)

Hi,

I have a Dell Latitude Laptop with a docking station and a 17" flat screen
monitor sitting on top.

I get a washed-out look whenever I'm looking at screens with lots of white,
like e-mail screens (Outlook, Outlook Express).

I thought hitting the High Contract button in the Control Panel options
might do something, but it does nothing. Am I missing some configuration or
a driver or something? Nothing seems obvious in terms of how to
troubleshoot this problem.

Thanks,

Boolean1

    The monitor has a complete set of adjustment tools built in. Look on
    the side bezel, or the bottom bezel. Find the manual, or download it
    from the vendor.

    Also, your laptop video adapter has a complete set of adjustment tools
    also.
