Question Monitor calibration for 2407WFP-HC.

Hello

About 5 days ago I gat my new Dell 2407WFP-HC and I am very pleased with it. This is my first LCD monitor so I really don’t know much about proper way of calibrating it or how to find dead pixels or to make sure my collars, ratio, brightness…etc is where it supposed to be.

Can someone please help get my new Dell 2407WFP-HC 24” monitor to its full potential?

Thanks.

You'd know if there were dead pixels.
They'd either be black, white, or a certain colour, and basically stuck in one position.

There are programs that'll help with calibrating.

Doesn't ATI's drivers have a Calibration tool?
