The default setting for gamma is 1. Try e.g. 2. See also xorg.conf(5). Alternatively you can try to change it while X is running by typing 'xgamma -gamma 2' in a terminal. This does require that the VidModeExtension is active, i.e. the ServerFlags option DisableVidModeExtension should _not_ be set. > PS: to you, or to any other driver wizards::: is this mga driver > still being hacked-on?

(*mumble*) It looks like it is still in development; http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-mga/ BTW, I was assuming you have tried adjusting the brightness and contrast settings of the monitor?
