    Default Too bright, my eyes hurt from graphics card

    I've had this Samsung SyncMaster 997MB for about a year now and I'm not very happy with it. ..

    The problem (well, there are several, but the one that irritates me the most) is that even when I set the brightness to the absolute minimum, I cannot get a true black. Normally, when you turn the brightness to zero on a CRT, it should look as though it is turned off. Playing games with dark pictures (like Thief or Doom 3) look washed out and grey. ..

    ps - I have already tried every gamma adjusting method there is. There is a set level of brightness that this monitor simply CANNOT go below.

    I have tested another monitor in my computer, and got the same problem, so I think that the problem isn't in my monitor, but in my video card. It is possible?

    I have a eVGA 7800 GT PCI-E 256MB.

    Another problem that I notice, is in desktop... in the right of the display, my files have too much bright... like this:

    And with photoshop open with a black background, I got something like this:
    http://i35.tinypic.com/axcwg8.jpg (Not exactly, this was edit in photoshop)


    Can someone help me please?
    This is very URGENT for me because I have my eyes hurts... I need glasses because of this problem, I am working at home over a year with this problem. ;(

    I need glasses, too. And if I am looking at a CRT, my eyes hurt, too. You should check if it's set to 100Hz (if it supports this). For me, a TFT is the only alternative (runs @ 76Hz), but I'd prefer a TFT anyways.

    You videocard maybe overvolting the signal out as well which is fairly common symtom on a failing card.
