    Colour Issue


    Has anyone had an issue with the colour of a second monitor?

    For some reason the colours are really off, the monitor on the left has a yellow tint on certain programs but not everything

    I've tried the latest NVidia drivers, resetting the TFT and updating the TFT drivers but no joys, it was fine in Windows 7

    REMOVE the ICC profile for the monitor on the left. (Advanced display settings, Color Management Tab)

    It was probably installed by default with the video driver or something. Unless you create one yourself using calibration tools, it's generally best to just remove it completely.

    Another potential issue... If you you have a monitor connected via HDMI, it will look very strange on the desktop (lower contrast, extremely bright colors) and I have found no way to really fix it. Always prefer the DVI or display port connectors instead.

    That seems to have solved it - removing the ICC profile - Cheers FSeal
