Dell ST2220L LED/LCD

As some know I just got a new PC. I got a 21.5" Dell ST2220L monitor. It was very bright out of the box. I kicked down contrast & sharpness to about half. Still learing the computer & would love to get this display dialed in better. I posted on AVS about this monitor (did a search) but no info about this display. Is it local dimming, how many LED panels, etc. Also would love what settings someone got with some equipment.
I tink I saw somewhere that Windows 7 has a calibration set-up, but I have no clue where that would be. Any info/links would be great. Thanks

Click start, control panel, display. Left hand column there will be a color calibration option.
