I just got (2 weeks ago) a new PC -- 64bit, Windows 7.
I use Spyder-3pro to calibrate.

With my monitor (LG 24" Flatron) things seem fine, then for no apparent reason the brightness seems to drop a bit. I don't remember seeing this before (on my WinXP box). I see this a few times a day (4 or 5 perhaps). The change is not huge but enough to mess up looking at photos.

I took home my office monitor (a slightly larger Philips that has terrible issues with vertical angle). It seems to happen on that one too, but not as often (anecdotal evidence for how often in both cases).

I might consider the video h/w (built-in intel) -- except that the change seems about what I see due to the Spyder3 calibration -- so I am wondering if that can kick in and out for any reason?

Any comments would be appreciated before I go to my supplier (who is our office supplier and supplier to our clients too so will support whatever I ask).

Dennis Smith.
