Question: Help on colour settings

I've just formatted my computer and before i formatted the colour setting was on 32-bit/ true colour. Now that i've formatted that option is gone and all i can choose is 16 colours and 256 colours.

Can anyone tell me how to get the 32-bit/ true colour option back.

I run Windows 98 and my current display is Plug and Play Monitor on Super VGA. I can't find a video card disk for it either.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Help on colour settings

You need to install the correct video card driver to get your colors/resolution back.

http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32 download this program and check -> Devices ->Physical Device and see what it lists for a video card or just physically look at thecard to get a make/model. Once you have that go to the manufacturers website and downlaod the correct drivers. Once installed you'll get the colors back.

I have been having trouble getting the links to come out the colour I tell them to.

I have discovered the root of my problem, it's to do with the Link colour settings in my Internet Browsers settings ( Tools, Internet Options, Colours, Links).

For some reason the links all show up the colour that the Visited links option is set to in the browser settings.

Why the Visited links colour is over riding the Unvisited links colour is one question, but also is there a way of disabling the browser settings in windows so the Dreamweaver settings are what I see?

Cheers

I recently upgraded to Adobe Lightroom 3 and for some reason or another the colour settings on my W700 have just gone completely haywire. There is a very very deep red hue on all my images .. even if I open an image in windows without using Photoshop or Lightroom that horrible pinky red hue is in all my pictures. I have used the HUEY Pro 3 times to see if it is a calibration problem but to no avail. I am at my wits end trying to get the colour correct. Can anyone help with this problem. The Adobe Forums have been useless.

Answer:Colour Settings have gone haywire

Are you using built-in calibrator? Maybe the sensor failed, or just got dirty.

Answer:Display Settings Colour

It sounds as though the driver is corrupt! If you have a separate driver for the display then re-install. If the driver is within windows itself, click on search for better or newer driver. This should cure the problem.If you are not sure how to do this, please post back to this thread and one of the forum members will talk you through the procedure.A couple of details would be handy though, Type of monitor and screen size, name/model of display driver. Again if your not sure of the latter then the make/model of PC will help. j.

I would like to use the Adobe Gamma tool for setting up my colour management profile but each time I set it up and save it in the appropriate folder, at the next re-boot, I loose the settings and have to start again. This has been going on now for months. Is there a way to make the 'setting' my monitor default setting so that my computer retains the setting after start up or any re-boot.

Answer:Colour Management Settings

click hereAnd download the Monitor Calibration Wizard. That will fix your problem. It will also give you the advantage of being able to set up several profiles to suit different circumstances and requirements. I have been using it for a few months with no problems at all.

Answer:colour settings for monitor

You need to install the graphics card drivers. Have a look on the documenteation that came with the pc it should tell you the graphics details. The drivers should also be on a cd supplied with the PC.

Hi guys i have just bought an ATI Radeon 9250 GFX card as my old Gforce FX5200 was playing up. When i try to play games they are too dark so i have gone inot the colour settings and the 3D settings on the card to try and fix the darkness but it does nothing to the colour on the game.

MY old card allowed me to brighten up the games that i wanted to play by adjusting the contrast etc, but when i try it with the Radeon nothng happens. It allows me to adjust the desktop colour but that is it.

I have tried various official drivers includng the latest ones but nothing changes. I dont really want to try unofficial drivers as they can sometimes make things worse so i was wondering before i do does anyone have any suggestions on what i can try.

I have tried uninstalling the card and the games but still have the problem.

Thanks

Answer:Display Settings - Colour Quality

You need to download the correct viedo drivers for her video card.

The first thing you need to do is idetnify the video card in question. Then download the drivers for that card. If you need help identifying the video card please post the make and model of the PC if its a storebought PC. If its home built you either have to open it up or run something like Everest to get the information.

How do I change the colour settings on my X500/02G running Windows Home?

At present the colours are way too bright and saturated - similar to the way tvs are set up in stores.

I've changed the brightness to no effect. I've checked the NVIDIA software but its not controling the colours some other sofware is - which I cant find

Any ideas?

Answer:Changing colour settings on Qosmio X500/02G

Hi

How did you change the brightness? Normally therefore you can use the key combinations FN+F6 and FN+F7.

Furthermore the colors can be changed in driver options of your graphic card. Right click on the desktop and choose the display properties. In advanced options you can find it and the driver menu will appear.

My windows 7 colour calibration is wrong somehow.

Blacks look grey, everything looks very washed out. With linux there is no problem.
I have used f.lux (but uninstalled now) and also run an eye one colour calibration (which I have uninstalled now) in the past (with old monitor).

How can I reset the colour settings in windows completely? I looked at the colour calibration dialogs but they are very complicated for a newbie. Is there some easy way to just reset everything all at once?

In the "Color management" "advanced tab" everything is on "system default".
 

Answer:Reset Windows 7 colour calibrations/settings

Click the Start button or tap the Windows key on your keyboard and type "calibrate" - when the option for "Change advanced color management settings for displays..." appears, select it. On the "All Profiles" tab, scroll to the bottom to the section labeled "ICC Profiles" and delete whatever happens to be there but only in that section, then reboot the machine. That should be a total reset of all color management settings and options.

You were in the right place, just looking at the wrong tab.

Answer:How to change colour settings on Satellite Pro P300

Please don?t mix the notebooks internal monitor with the external desktop PC monitor.
You will not find any control unit like on the external monitor which would help you to change the color.

I don?t know what graphic chip your notebook uses but my notebook supports Intel graphic card and the preinstalled Intel graphic media accelerator (in control panel) provides some settings for color correction;
The settings are; color, gamma, brightness and contrast?

There you can set the values between 0 and 100?

Maybe this is what you are looking for?

Answer:How to change contrast & colour settings on the Equium A100

Hi

Changing of contrast and colour?
Well buddy, you can change display brightness level by using the key combination FN + F6 and F7.
The other settings are changeable only in the graphic card properties.
I don?t know what graphic card you use but generally you have to search in the advanced options.
Check if there are any ?gamma?, ?brightness? or ?contrast? settings.

I found such settings on my notebook. I have an intel graphic card and the option was called ?Colour correction

Hello

I've had my laptop for over a year now, and this issue just arose. The colour settings on Intel control panel seem to have changed. However, when I set it back to 'default' it's super bright, and almost impossible to read text.

Could someone who is running Windows 8, and has Intel Control Panel tell me what settings they have (under display -> Colour enhancement)?
The settings I'm currently using are as close as I could get to the original (in terms of colour) [Pic 1]

I can't show you what it looks like, because screenshots just display the screens as normal looking, and if I use a camera, the pictures will appear too bright/dim anyway.

Why are the default settings on Intel so bright?

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

A very small dongle plugs into a USB port on my T41, (Win XP, SP2).I downloaded and installed Logitech's SetPoint 4.60 software, Logitech's driver for the mouse. They have two other things to download and install associated with this mouse, Logitech« Connection Utility and Logitech« Desktop Messenger.  I didn't know what the other two software does, so I didn't download either one.The settings for the Mouse, controlled in the SetPoint dialog boxes seem to affect and interfer with the T41 TouchPad's settings. I don't see the exact cause and effect, hence this post. It seems when if I set up a comfortable setting for the mouse, for acceleration and pointer speed, then the touchpad settings are lowered (acceleration and speed are lowered), to the point of being uncomfortably slow.  Then if I modify settings via the ThinkPad UltraNav Wizard (ver 3.05), to speed up the speed or acceleration, the Logitech mouse's speed and acceleration are slowed down.  It seems to be a never ending game, set up one device, and the settings on the other device get changed.  Does anyone know why this is, or have a fix for it?A further note, I've used generic USB mice, the $10 corded kind that plug into a USB port, and have never had this problem.  So the Logitech SetPoint driver/software is the different from using generic mice. ...

i cant get rid of the files in C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5....NOTHING ive tried has worked....any information on how i can get rid of them would be GREAT!!
 

Answer:C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.

Hi Welcome to TSG!!

If you log on as administrator you should be able to delete everything in the C:\Documents and Settings\owner\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 folder.

If you sign in as "owner" you should be able to remove everything except index.dat if you close all of your browser windows.

Hi,
 
Looking for advice on how to find where the touch pad settings may be hidden on this laptop I'm working on? I've looked in the control panel and there is no icon for touch pad and I've looked in the mouse settings without finding any options to change the settings for the touch pad? The laptop is an acer Aspire 5520-5912 running Vista Home Premium Service pack 2. Any ideas?

Answer:Can't find touch pad settings in Control Panel/Mouse settings anywhere?

Hi loki2007 Usually, Windows install it's own Microsoft Legacy Drivers for a touchpad on a laptop, and these drivers doesn't enable the "Advanced" settings that allows you to control the touchpad. In order to do that, you have to install the laptop touchpad drivers which will add that tab in the Mouse options.Download and install these drivers:http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/TouchPad/Touchpad_Synaptics_9.1.16_Vistax86.zip?acerid=633639058794305220&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%205520&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_4Let me know if they install or not.

I just purchased and installed Spyware Doctor. After running it the first time there were 3 issues it could not clean. Two of the three were Rootkit.agent and Trojan.vundo. Upon reboot (and every boot since), windows starts up, asks for my logon, applies my personal settings and them immediately goes to saving my settings. The system them returns to the log-on screen. The same events happen in safe mode. I can boot and get into Windows using a WINTERMINAL disk in my CD drive, but i really don't know what do to from this point. When I try to double-click or run Spyware Doctor, it says there are files missing. Please help!
 

Answer:Windows logs me on, applies settings, then auto saves settings

Welcome to Major Geeks!

First I recommend that you not attempt to run Spyware Doctor anymore since it seems to have been what cause you this problem with logging in. This is about the 3rd time in the last couple days someone has mentioned this issue and each time it was after running Spyware Doctor. To that end, I would ask do you have a log from Spyware Doctor. It may default to saving a log somewhere. I believe they used to save files in as XML (which is not a good idea in my opinion).
Please try to follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

Erm , I don't really know how it started , but i think it had gone worse these days so im getting worried .

Problems i'm facing
1- "[title] Personalized settings

this appears each time i start up ,

2- my computer lags easily , but not always . sometimes when i afk for sometime and when i come back and i click something it lags and soon theres nothing i can do except pressing the restart button . (i can 'press' the task manager button , but after that it doesn't appear and it gets worse , sometimes it writes that explorar.exe is using very high % of my cpu . )

3- Certain settings Did change like the 'no active audio mixers available' problem , i searched the Internet for this problem and i found the solution using services.msg , i turned it to automatic but after i restart it turns back to the way it is . (Note : the no audio mixers problem seems to appear only after i use the computer for some time , everytime i trstart it turns back normal)
- last time when i press ctrl+alt+del the task manager appears immediately , now , the windows security appears first .

4- Sometimes when i insert my pendrive and after i finish i want to remove it safely , but it says its currently in use or something , i'm pretty sure im not though

Hi guys, I've had this problem for around 4-5 monthes but have never really gotten around to looking for a solution. Anyways, here is part 1 of my dilema. Lenovo Settings will not open. In fact, it seems to have disappeared completely, along with several "default" apps, such as Paint and Calculator. However, I am able to see them, yet cannot open them directly. View From the Home Button. Oddly enough, I can still open paint, though I have to do so via right clicking on a picture. Clearly they exist, but whenever I click on them and attempt to open them directly, nothing happens. Another issue I have is that the lock screen is stuck on one picture. I cannot change this picture, instead, when I try to change it, the loading wheel spins indefinately like so. If there is any solution to either of these issues please contact me as soon as you can. As you can imagine it's a little bit annoying having battery saver mode stuck on so I can't charge more than 60% for road trips. EDIT: I should also note that this is a Y50-70 I am using

There is a software which often changes the proxy settings so I decided to config the internet settings registry right to reject the proxy settings. But When I decided to delete this software and return the rights back, I suddenly found that I can not change
the proxy settings manually!
The detail is that I change the auto proxy url, to let my pc use a pac file and I don't want any softwares to change. However, when I decided to give the rights back and try to change the url back, it never success, and even the same when i'm sure I have
cleared this url in the whole registry, but it back, as it never changes!
I check the registry rights twice or more to make sure that the rights has given back, just like it originally should be. But it never works.
So the result is I have to clear and reinstall the WINDOWS 10 AGAIN!
Never should you save such information both in registry and somewhere I don't know! Or you should let these stuffs out of the ** registry!

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

Answer:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

Hi There,

I have a dell inspiron 6000 with mobile intel chipset 9145. I am trying to play TV out, but whenever i attach it to the TV - i am only getting black and white. I have tried changing the colour adminstration within properties to kodakdc and srgb colour space profile but i am still having the same problems.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
 

Answer:Tv out Has No Colour

It could be a PAL/NTSC setting somewhere. Some laptops have a BIOS setting for TVout. If it's set for NTSC and the TV is set for PAL, or vice versa, you will get video issues. I had a an old DVD player that was 'stuck' on NTSC only. When I tried to play a PAL movie in it, it would play in black and white. Check the back of the TV or wherever all the control switches are (or just read the manual). Check the PC BIOS and the TVout settings if using separate video hardware/software....

Good luck!

Hi,

I know some basic stuff about computers, but I don't know how to fix this problem.

I have Windows XP. Firstly, the computer started running slower than usual for a while (a few weeks), then one day when I started the computer up, a screen came up in the DOS bit at the start asking me what mode I wanted to start in as there was a problem. I selected the option (and Im paraphrasing here) 'The last good configuration' as it seemed best. From then on, the colour went to 4 bit, and an 800x600 resolution. I can't change these settings as I normally would, as there are no other options available. I can use the computer fairly normally, except the awful colour and res. However, if the screensaver comes on, and I re-activate the screen, it will be totally messed up - the edges puffed out like a pincushion setting, black and white, lines travelling down the screen and flickering, sometimes going totally black then coming back again.

My housemate started the computer up and somehow got the original DOS screen back asking which mode to start in - he selected 'safe mode' and the colour was then good - except the internet then wouldn't connect. (I have broadband so it's normally automatic - I don't know how to connect it manually)

This is my brother's computer, so I don't know a lot about it - programs and so on - he's un-contactable at the moment and will be for a couple of months... I'd greatly appreciate any he... Read more

I'm having a major problem with XP Home Edition. When I start my computer, I get the Loading Settings screen, which automatically switches to the Saving Settings screen and then goes back to Loading Settings, Saving Settings, etc, etc, (the "Windows XP Startup" and "Windows XP Shutdown" sounds repeat themselves one right after the other). By the way, I have the XP tweak that skips the Welcome and log on screens at startup since I'm the only person that uses the computer. I've tried Debugging, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Restore To Last Working Settings and a few others, but nothing is working. I ran Spybot just before shutting down the computer the last time it worked and got the "Congratulations! Your system contains no spyware" message. When I restarted the computer, I started having this problem. I also have Norton Anti Virus 2004 and did a Live Update (manually) a few hours before this started happening. Anyway, I realize this is probably a virus, (even though I haven't downloaded anything other than virus definitions in the past few days) and I have no clue what to do now. The XP restore disks aren't doing any good because I can't get past the Loading Settings, Saving Settings screens. Any suggestions?

I just installed Win 10 upgrade from Windows 7 on my computer and I am having some problems to modify system settings regarding pen and touch, specially "Flicks" settings, that I need to disable to have a better performance using a Wacom tablet.

When I go to Pen and Touch>Flicks Windows says I can?t change settings since those are managed by the OS admin, but my profile has admin rights....

So, I decided to enable the Administrator account, to see if using it would fix the issue, but the Administrator account still shows the same problem, with the OS giving the same message.

I even went to settings to restore the PC to default to see if it was not some installation error, but the problem still persists, since even after restoring Windows with no apps installed the OS still gives me the same message.

I saw some people having issues related with that message when trying to change Windows Update settings, and they were able to use a workaround with group policy settings so they could do whatever they need with group policy editor, but I didn't find anything related to the Flick settings there, and even so, I prefer a solution that fix / allows me to make changes on settings, specially those related to pen and touch stuff, that are my really new trouble using Windows 10.

So anyone has any idea how to fix this or at least a way that I can disable everything in Flicks with gpedit ?

Tks

I use Windows XP Pro. My lovely children got to my computer this morning and logged in as me, rather than as "kids". Now, when I try to log in as "me", all of my settings are gone and the scene and settings look like when you log in as the "kids" . When I try to go into explorer, it tells me I have to install it. Same with all other programs. Nothing shows up as installed. If I pull up my programs list, it still lists my programs such as itunes, word, etc., but if I try to run them, they all need to be installed. (Logging in as "kids" still looks like "kids" though.) If I look for my Word documents through another user's Word, I can find them, under "kids documents", "shortcut to me documents". I looked at doing system restore but somewhere in the process it looks like system checkpoints have been deleted because the only system checkpoint it shows is from today and is after the change occurred.

I obviously can access my Word documents but it is my saved email and addresses that I am most upset about. Any suggestions? Would it make things worse to try restarting the computer? Many, many, many thanks.

on both of my machines today i booted up and got stuck in that trap...loading settings...saving settings, until i got po'd enough to format em both. but that is like shootin a mosqioto with a shotgun. what causes this ( its not the first time) and how can i get around it...i tried safe mode but got the same routine when i tried to logon as admin, i tried a system repair with no help. i am usin xp lame oops xp home, i have 9 diferent malware clients and run most of them several times per day so i dont think it was malware. i did 'mess with' userinit, i just unchecked it so it wouldnt be part of the startup process... thats the only weird thing i did. any suggestions as to how to avoid/get around this prob next time it occurs? tkz

Hello,
Is it possibly the Anniversary Update, which has blocked my possibilities to change the Lock Screen configuration? In Settings->Personalisation that whole option is greyed out today and I'm stuck with a lock screen, which I can't modify or change. Any help for this? Perhaps there is a registry change I could apply? I would be happy for any suggestion.

I've attached an image. My language is Swedish, but I guess that you will recognise the part of the Settings->Personalisation, which is shown.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Cannot use Settings->Personalisation to change Lock Screen settings

Hi tomcats!

You could have enterprise version with some options disabled, or you are connected to work (with account), which again could render some of the options unavailable..

Hi, I am having a problem where my trackpoint settings are not being kept. Every couple of days I need to go back to the control panel and readjust the sensitivity of the trackpoint leading me to believe that this happens when the machine either goes to sleep or is shut down. The driver is up to date and I am using the T400 machine. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers

When I started up it says Win.ini corrupt. Then it starts
up as a new user losing track of Favorites and Start Menu
and Desktop Icons, Display and Folder attributes. Under
Documents and Settings it has added Dave.U5R2D5 in
addition to Dave which still has all the information. I tried
switching the 2 Filenames to get back to what it used to be but
gave an error message and didn't do it and started another new file.
Is there some way to use the old Dave file?
 

Answer:Lost settings, New user made in Documents and Settings

Hiya asd123321.

It sounds like you`ve re-installed the system from CD over the top of an existing system, giving you a fresh `Dave`. Have you recently run a repair or indeed, done a clean install ?

As a work-around, can you take the documents & favourites from the old `Dave` and put them in the new `Dave` so at least you`re back up and running again.

Jenny
