Martin S. Posted February 2, 2008 Report Share Posted February 2, 2008 Hi. I have recently been setting up a new Dell M1730, with two 8700M GT cards. I thought these would be an improvement on my earlier 6800 Ultras, but there is one glaring and oft discussed fault: my screen is way to bright and washed out. I can correct this with the nVidia 'Adjust Desktop Colour Settings', but there is no way to make my preferences the default settings. If I reboot or even change video in WMP, I'm back to the horrible overbright screen again. Read about a registry tweak (changing DisableApplyColorsAtStartup to a value of 1) but that hasn;'t worked. So, after hours at this, downloaded v163.69 drivers from this site, with the modified INF file. Drivers installed OK, but the situation is now even worse: changing the sliders in the nVidia colour settings now won't alter the screen brightness/contrast at all, so I am going to have to roll back to the Dell drivers. I have wasted SO much time searching for a solution to this. I am going to e-mail Dell, but not hopeful at all they will resolve this of course. Anyone here able to suggest a solution? I assume that the inability of the graphics to remember the defaults I am trying to set up is the fault of the drivers??? Many thanks, Martin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
