    I'm looking for a tool for my ATI card that will let me calibrate the Brightness/Contrast etc of my TFT. NVIDIA had a good tool that does this for you, does such a thing exist for ATI cards?

    At the moment I'm manually adjusting the brightness but would rather be able to see what I'm doing sort of thing - that greyscale where you try and get the last two blocks black.

    Spot on, I wasn't too far off with my brightness but a slight tweak and all is good again.

    :p , just when I was using NVIDIA, it made a big difference callibrating the settings using what is basically their version of the above (though it also let you vary, red, blue, green intensity as well).

    Following a new install it always seems a bit to bright, (I've got my monitor turned down to 0% brightness) so I need to turn it down in the control panel.

    Pleased it was what you wanted Jokester. For others thinking about trying it out, It works for all monitors by the way, not just Viewsonic.

    Yeah, forgot to say, this was on a Dell 24" monitor.
