O.K. so I just bought my first new computer I am coming from a long line of hand-me-down frankenstein monsters. The new machine is an HP I know I know some of you can insert your groans here but for the money I got a good package and it was all I could afford. So my question is this, on my last monitor all my pics seemed really dark it was just a standard whatever monitor nothing special now, I have a sweet 19" HD flatscreen LCD monitor super sharp and clear but now all my pics and everything else games, web, etc. seems really light. Is it just my eyes not being used to a good monitor or are they just light out of the box. Is there anything I can do short of buying a Spider or some other monitor calibration device any help would be greatly appreciated.
