    Problem with brightness on Desktop.


    I downloaded wos 10 and for the first 2 days they worked fine...I booted my computer in safe mode and then booted again in normal mode...But then a problem occured with my screen...For some reason its very white and dim...I cannot stand in front of the screen for a long time because it gives me headaches and my eyes are hurting...I think its the common problem with brightness control that many laptop users have or had...But i have a desktop and i dont know what to do exactly...I redownloaded several times the AMD catalyst control center but I didnt manage to make something...

    I have i5-3570, amd radeon hd 7870 flex and 8 gb of trascened ram at 1333 mhz

    Hi, Welcome to forums

    right click on start and select control panel
    from the search at the top right enter power and then select 'Power Options' from the result

    at the bottom of this page is a brightness slider, which I have found gives more control over the brightness than the option in Action Centre

    Just curious, does your OS show as being activated? I've seen some posts saying that the option will be missing if the version is not activated.

    n power options-the only other way i know hot to adjust it is through color calibration in display properties which also adjusts other things
    looks like the brightness slider is not there on all computers cause i dont have one there or i

    Ah...

    Just a thought...
    How about fiddling with the controls on the monitor itself?
    Monitors will often change their settings when plugged into a new/changed computer.
    Most modern monitors will come with those annoying fiddly buttons underneath that control brightness/contrast/ x/y axis, etc...
