        Or should I ask somebbody to put back in the Radeon  card?  (i
        think that was the card i thought was "going bad"... ) Otherwise,
        I'll try the "Gamma"  entry in my Monitor section with my G450.
        What value should I use?  Or if it is boolen, do I try settting
        it to "on"??

        thanks lots,

            still being hacked-on?  The screen is only "dingy grey" not
            black.  (*mumble*)
