System is Win98 using ATI rage pro and an ASTvision 5l monitor. Monitor is set at highest brightness and control panel settings have been tweeked so gamma setting is at the highest but the display is still so dark as to be nearly unworkable. Any ideas ?

Yup - either the monitor or the graphics card is faulty - find which by substitution.

the display can be very dark in some games with older ATI drivers,the latest drivers fix the problem click here.

gamma settings only effect games.

check control panel/display/settings/advanced/colour/desktop brightness settings.

as DieSse says above though,may be hardware.
