Windows 7 desktop monitor brightness issue

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit, AMD Quad Core/6 gig
My OS is Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have a brand new Lenovo "desktop" pc with AMD quad core processor with integrated ATI graphics, 6 gig of memory . I cannot find anyway to adjust the brightness via Windows . The monitor itself is all the way up and the pictures are still too dard specially on the tv tuner card. I did not have this issue with the monitor on my old IBM with Win ME in it . The display was plenty bright on that setup and did not have to have the brightness all the way up and the tv card in that looked great.
The new setup has the latest drivers . I have looked under the power settings and there is no slider bar for brightness adjustment in there. Anyone got any ideas to try ? Quite frankly don't see what the hubub is for Win 7 just a slicker version of ME and they have incorporated things like the media center and its somewhat faster . The time I had to spend to find workarounds to get things like slighly older equipment like my printer and scanner justs kind of ticks you off .

Which monitor are you using? Do you have the drivers installed for the monitor? The brightness adjustment would be on the monitor itself. Is it an lcd or crt?

It is a V7 17 inch lcd monitor , 4:3 aspect ratio. I cannot find any win 7 drivers for the display itself so it must be using microsoft installed drivers.

Thats the issue cannot find anywhere where there is any brightness adjustment . I have looked all thru the ATI Catalyst Control Center for any kind of adjustment and there is none.
