I've got a 20" Lenovo monitor hooked up to my Dell laptop with a VGA cable. I'd previously been using it as a second monitor on an iMac, via DVI.
I'm unable to adjust the brightness, however (I was able to before, both using the Mac's options and the buttons on the monitor).
On the monitor, the option to increase brightness comes up (using the buttons), but moving the slider makes no difference. I don't know Windows 7 well enough to know if there's a computer-based way to change the brightness. What to do?
