Monitor problems


#1

so i bought a second hand monitor IBM 21" inch monitor (model 6652 u3n, manufactured 2003 march). I have had good luck with 2nd hand ibm monitors but this one is just tooo bright.

When i turn it on, the picture is a little bit small width wise but it adjusts ok,,,then the picture flicks a little bit now and then. I have checked the cable and my video card and everything seems ok except for the too bright monitor (i have tried adjusting the brightness with the monitor and software controls but the picture still remains too bright) and a little flicker in the picture now and then,,,

i still have 3 day warranty on it ,,so any suggestions welcome

My father recently bought a dvd player from dubai and he was charged 1000 on the karachi airport.

Which was a bribe they demanded, not duty.

I was charged no duty last time I brought in an LCD monitor in 2005. Things may have changed now, however.
