Lost brightness control on second monitor
on Nov 13, 2009 at 12:19:41 am

When I open my display preferences, it shows both control panels, but the brightness control for the second monitor is missing. The best I can tell it happened after installing Snow Leopard.
My graphics board is a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT and the machine is a 2 x 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon.

have you run the snow leopard updates?

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

Thanks for reply Zane. Everything is up to date and I havn\'t heard of anyone else experiencing the problem. I\'ll boot the machine from an external drive when I get in this morning to see if it\'s o.s. related.

... and it looks like my iPhone is inserting characters before every apostrophe when I post to the COW.
If problems happen in groups of three, I hope the third one is as minor as these two.

Did you ever get a solution for this?

I just lost the SysPrefs brightness control for my second monitor, an Apple aluminum Cinema 24 display, after updating to 10.6.3 v1.1.

The monitor cable needed to be re-seated.
