HP 2009m - inconsistent brightness

Hi,
 
My newly-purchased HP 2009m monitor is inconsistent in brightness and text clarity (especially noticeable when the background is white or any light color).  The top part of the screen is very clear and readable, but as I move my eyes down, the screen gradually grows brighter - with the associated text becoming thinner - and the result is an annoying strain on the eyes.
 
I've played around with adjusting the height of the monitor (in my case, stacking phone books underneath it :-)) and also tilting the angle of the monitor, but nothing I've done has produced satisfactory results.  (I've also given the auto adjust, brightness, contrast, etc, controls a workout, but the problem remains no matter what I do.)
 
FWIW, my video card is nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430, and according to nvidia's website my PC has the latest driver (191.07) installed.
 
I think my options are probably:
 
1)  deal with it and get used to it, or
2)  return the product to where I bought it.
 
I'm strongly leaning toward option 2, but I wanted to know if there were any possible solutions before I did so.
 
If I need to provide any other info, please let me know.
 
Thank you.

Compare it to the store model to see if it is a manufacturing defect.

Please post rather than send me a message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.

BB, your first option as you describe it is no option at all.  Keeping the monitor, if the problem can't be corrected, is only going to frustrate you.  Don't do this to yourself.  Smiley Sad  If we can't determine the cause, take it back and get one that works correctly.  HP and you will be much happier.  Smiley Very Happy

 

Okay, here is a link 'Display Quality Issues' for your monitor.  See if this helps.  Did you install the latest drive for the monitor, also?  This should be done before attempting any troubleshooting.
