I'm not sure what 'a box sitting away from me' means.   the light sensor 
would be a feature of the LCD monitor, not the computer system (unless 
youre talking about a laptop where its all integrated).

shine a bright flashlight at and around the monitor, including down from 
the top, does the screen brightness change?
