Well i have no clues how to calibrate my LCD monitor. I mean use Brightness and contrast setting of my lcd or use same options under Graphic Scheme { found in graphic card} under display properties --> Advance properties--->Intel Accelerator card.

I did go to //www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/#top , but when i see image for white saturation,//www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/white.php

i cannot see the last row, it appears as totally white.
i am not sure should i use brightness and contrast of my monitor or driver's

I can't really help other than to say just keep playing with what you are doing, doesn't really matter whether you adjust the settings on the monitor or the card as long as you can achieve yoru goal and they will be saved. If adjusting one set cannot get it right then reset to default and try adjusting the other.

I recommend a Spyder 2 calibrator, about £60, which will do it all for you in about 5 minutes.

I also use a calibrator - EyeOne by gretagmacbeth. But if you google monitor calibration, you'll find lots of websites that will help you calibrate visually. While not perfect, they will get you pretty close.
