I have an external monitor plugged into my laptop. But compared to my laptop, the brightness levels are very dim. In advanced power settings I can't seem to apply brightness levels to the external monitor. Any ideas how to configure this?

Monitor is an ASUS VX229.


You won't be able to adjust the brightness from your laptop - you'll need to use the physical control buttons on the monitor.

According to the manual you should go Menu -> Color -> Brightness.

  • Fyi, I was able to get to a satisfactory level of brightness by using Night View mode. – Lews Therin Aug 23 '15 at 12:43
