Open up a blank image in Photoshop or any software which you use for editing (with a white background) and hold up a piece of your high quality printing paper.

Does the white of the screen match the white of the paper ?

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 10 months ago.

You have to try changing the brightness and contrast of your monitor to match the actual white paper.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 10 months ago.

If by adjusting the brightness and contrast doesn't matches your monitor screen.(rare cases)

Then you will have to purchase a colorimeter which will allow you to calibrate and profile your monitor so that the white point and every color points along the spectrum is consistently and dependably adjusted to be where it should be.
