Each monitor is different.
Try 50/50 at first.
If that doesn't look acceptable, then read this link on how to set the brightness and contrast correctly.

Also check color temperature. Set it to 9300K if it's not there already.

Keep in mind that if your monitor is old/has gotten a lot of use, it may not be able to display as brightly as it once did.

Depends. The procedure for adjusting brightness and contrast is to turn the contrast down to zero. Then set the brightness to the level just below where you begin to see the raster (non image parts of the screen image, IE: the borders). Then turn the contrast up until you get a good picture.

Another way is to start with the controls all the way up and turn down the brightness until the blacks get good and dark. Then turn the contrast down so the bright areas don't bloom.

Make minor adjustments from those points acording to your personal preferences.

If you have an on-screen display menu on your monitor, there is usually an option to set to factory defaults.

You can download free program from Nokia that will help you adjust the colors/brightness & contrast.

This is freeware and no viruses or other junk.
