  1. Colour Setup TFT Monitor

    Hi, just wondering what the best program is for setting up my TFT monitors colours correctly, Ive got a Hercules ProphetView 920 17" DVi monitor if it makes any difference, ive tried one before which stays in your system background, but it hogged resources, so preferably is there something about which i can use which i dont have to install, or i install once then delete?

    Cheers Guys :bounce:

    Ok, maybe i should have rephrased the post, i need a program for adjusting the brightness/coontrast/gamma of my monitor, that program ive used before which hogged resources was called "3Deep" and it sucked

    How bad are the colors? Most monitors have some kind of settings for color temperature. If you really want to have the best possible colors, then get LaCie's Blue Eye Vision Calibrator. It's not software and not cheap though.

    its not a MAJOR problem, its just that when i get the colours right on my desktop, websites look dark or bright, when i get the colour in 1 game right, another game looks dark, and i just cant find a comfortable medium:confused:

    LaCie's Blue Eye Vision Calibrator OMG!

    Im not made of money, although it does look rather cool, i would rather spend £300 of my hard earnt money on an Athlon 64 :D

    As its a DVi monitor its supposed to adjust everything automatically and so there isnt a Colour Temp option, all i get it brightness/contrast on the monitor settings, i primarily use the driver colour adjustments, but again, if i make the colour look pretty on TechSpot, My desktop looks really dark, if i get the colour on my desktop right, TechSpot looks really bright, its just finding the comfortable medium

    When you say that the darkness varies in your games you dont mention the colours :confused: Well I think you need to change the gamma. If you mean that the darkness is varied then you should change the gamma(brightness) settings on each individual game, to your liking. Hope it helps :grinthumb
