2011년 5월 21일 토요일 오후 11:37Any time I run a DirectX application in Windows 7 32 bit, my color calibration gets reset. I recently bought a new 23" Samsung LCD flat panel display and when it first came out of the box, it displayed everything in this nasty overbright mode where the colors were all washed out and the blacks were more like grays. I fixed this with a custom calibration through both Windows and the Nvidia control panel, BOTH OF WHICH DO NOT WORK WHEN I RUN GAMES OR D3D ACCELERATED FULLSCREEN APPLICATIONS LIKE 3DMARK VANTAGE.So i run Crysis, for instance, but this is true for all D3D accelerated apps, be it Halo, Halo 2, Portal, Assassin's Creed, Guitar Hero 3, Fallout 3, Section 8, 3D Mark Vantage, etc. My color is nice and pretty on my desktop. Then it starts up and enters fullscreen. And after i exit the game my monitor is in the nasty overbright mode like it displayed when it first came out of the box. so i go to my desktop, open up Nvidia control panel and jiggle one of the sliders for gamma, brightness, or anything and BAM, my calibration comes back. What in the freaking heck?! Why are the settings not returning after the app closes? It is really inconvenient for me to have to manually reset my calibration anytime i feel the urge to play a game.I have searched far and wide across the internet and so far i have found thousands with my problem and ZERO with a solution. I am sick and tired of this BS from AMD (ATI for those of you who are wondering), Microsoft, and Nvidia who have all blamed it on the other guy. I went to NVIDIA forums and they reffered me to Microsoft. I went Microsoft Answers and they referred me to NVIDIA and here. I come here to express my frustration and offer my own solution. I would do this if i had the know-how but i dont. Is there a way to overwrite the default color profile as your custom profile so the computer resets to your desired settings?

Have you upgraded the video adapter driver?
I suggest you disable all third party 3D accelerator and check the result. If the issue persists, troubleshoot in Clean Boot Mode.

the problem is i need my video driver to play games. Clean boot disables my video driver and a number of other required services so i have no hardware acceleration and all of my games crash almost instantly.
its not the driver anyway. updating and rolling back the driver was the first thing it tried to fix this problem.

If what you have is a desktop LCD display, as opposed to laptop displays, then you have no reason not to change the RGB, brightness and contrast values thru the OSD. So simple. The real challenge comes when you have a laptop with overly heightened blue level. A game like Crysis actually reverts and blocks your ICC adjustments. So each time you quit out of the game, you have to reactivate them manually or you'll suffer from a big fat case of the blues.
What is up with these laptop LCD makers? Did they all take the blue pill?
