Monitor colour profiles

  kimjhon 20:43 22 Jan 2005

When I updated video drivers for the onboard Nvidia chip, Nvidia Desktop was installed.

Nvidia Desktop has facilities to tweak monitor colour settings.
You can save these settings to be applied at start up.

I like to have as little as poss running in the background or loading at start-up so I have disabled Nvidia Desktop.

I was happy with monitor hardware settings which I configured manually using the monitor's buttons.

The trouble is that now the monitor starts dark and the buttons have lost the ability to lighten the screen sufficiently.
( I can start Nvidia Desktop which will then apply its own setting - so there is nothing wrong with the tube)

When I open Display Properties | Settings tab | Advanced | Colour Management , it reads "Current monitor: Default monitor profile None>". I can hit a button to add a monitor profile but all I seem to have are printer colour profiles to select from.

So there are no monitor profiles to load and something has happened to the chip in the monitor ??

Is there any chance of acquiring a 'monitor profile' or something. I am loath to start finding and installing earlier Nvidia drivers
which would prob not re-instate the profiles, anyway ?

Any thoughts, please ?

Do you have a prob getting it ?

My monitor has always used Windows driver. Will I have to look out for any probs when I install the monitors drivers ?
