Just got a new laptop with Windows Vista (I know, I know) and the contrast is a bit screwed, I think. Everything just seems to be tinted a little bit white, no matter what direction the screen is pointing. Is there any way to alter the contrast apart from changing the theme to a high contrast one? That just makes everything look like Windows 95. Help would be appreciated.

You can usually change the contrast levels in your video card drivers control panel, where that option is at exactly depends on what video chipset your laptop has (ATI, Nvidia, or Intel).

If it's a Dell, there's a power save option that "Dymanically changes the contrast levels to give you..." yada yada. By disasbling this (look around in Program files\Dell) that won't happen. I'm assuming this only happens when on battery power? If not, the fixing your ATI/nVidia settings will also work.

On most laptops there is a little arrow and sun. Usually you just push your function key and tap on the key to bump it up and down.
