Monitor Brightens on Start Up

July 27, 2005 at 07:33:30
Specs: xp, Pentium 4

New computer and monitor. Monitor brightens while loading desktop then dims to correct level. Same thing happens when I change users but does not return to normal level it stays bright until I go out and come back it. I realize this is a minor problem but would appreciate any input. I have gone in and changed the DPI and acceleration with no difference except it shrunk my 19 inch crt screen. My tech support had no answers other than to change those settings and it didn't work. Monitor only does this on the settings load not when I am working on the computer once it is loaded.

Thanks

Hi,

When the monitor brightens up, does the video appear like a wishy washy? This happened when I had my very first Pentium 166 in 1996 and the monitor I used was a Mag Innovision. The card I had was a 4MB Matrox. From what I remember the true bit was set too high and that's what caused the screen to appear wishy washy. I had to download the new video drivers and then I had to adjust the color quality by lowering it to the next level. That fixed the issue. I am not sure if this is what is happening to you, but it might be worth to try it. What monitor do you have and what is the video card?

no the clarity and color on the screen remain true, it only brightens briefly on start up and when I switch users it stays bright until I go out and come back in.
