    Monitor needs adjusting


    I have a 5 yr old 22" Envision G218a1 monitor all hazy & probably going out.

    Does anyone know how I adjust it for a few weeks?

    My mind cleared a little bit after I posted and I removed the monitor in PCSettings - PC and devices.
    After a reboot it brightened up but not quite up to par.
    I've played with the adjustments on the monitor before and they don't change a lot for quality.

    A few suggestions for clearer image is still appreciated.

    Could try Calibrate Color & Adjust Clear Type text in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display.

    Another thing you can do if the monitor has it's own adjustments(color, gamma, contrast, brightness...etc.) is Google for TV or Monitor test patterns such as this youtube video.
