With the power OFF, try disconnecting and reconnecting the lead between monitor and PC at both ends to make sure there isn't a poor connection. Then I would try reinstalling the driver for your graphics card. You say the on-screen display is okay, so that indicates the monitor itself is alright (yes?), so it has to be PC-based or the connecting lead. Good luck. LC.

Not familiar with the (nvidia geforce2 mx440), but does that also have brightness/contrast controls on it as well? some cards do.

I've a GeForce2-Ti. Have you loaded the latest detonator driver?. If not, do so, you should then have the option to adjust brightness by right clicking on desktop then on settings then advanced then - I think - colour management.
