Default MX4000 DVI output extremely dark

I am running a 4 monitor setup. Two monitors are on my 6800GS PCI-E and two are on my MX4000 PCI. The DVI output on the MX4000 is extremely dark. I've tried all three of the FE950 monitors I have as well as the Samsung 20" LCD on that DVI port and it remains unusably dark. I have to crank the brightness all the way up on the monitor connected to that port to barely make out what's on the screen.

I haven't upgraded to the newest driver released yesterday yet (I have to get my 7600 back from my friend as I've had his 6800 on loan waiting on these drivers!).

Anyhoo, here's my xorg.conf, not that I think it'll matter.

Code:

Default Re: MX4000 DVI output extremely dark

Have you tried adjusting the brightness with nvidia-settings? If this problem persists with 1.0-8756, please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni
