How to turn off automatic photo color adjustment on Y560 (solved)

Question: How to turn off automatic photo color adjustment on Y560 (solved)

Hi, On my Ideapad Y560, whenever the computer detects that I'm viewing a photo, it automatically bumps up the contrast and darkens the colors. I really hate this effect, is there a way to turn it off? I'm running windows 7 64 bit and have an ATI 5700 series graphics card. Thanks! -Scott

One surprise in just upgrading from Win 8.1 to 10 is black taskbar and the seeming limit on adjusting colors. It's been a long time since I had to play with it, but with Win 8.1 and back I've had a transparent, semi-clear taskbar, with custom color settings (intensity, hue, saturation and brightness) that let the grey/blue of the bottom of the photo I used for the desktop come through. Is that kind of adjustment completely gone with Win 10? All the colors in Settings seem highly saturated. I came across a website that showed a lot more changes along the lines I am looking for, but its Win 10 settings layout doesn't seem current (Change the Color of Taskbar and Window Border in Windows 10). Thanks,

COLOR DESK PHOTO has always been a dependable and useful program for me. After a near disaster with my hard drive, I now find the error, "LTKRN62N.DLL is missing" when double clicking COLOR DESK PHOTO. Acquisition of the program was either by download or bundled with a printer but now I can’t find a trace of the missing file. I see in Win Explorer that most of the components of the program are still in place.

Anyone out there know anything about this program and how to recover the missing file???
 

Answer:(Solved) Color Desk Photo

So the program won't work now?? You can download that file from here:

http://www.techcontrol.org/gallery/Utilities/Shark/Barking Cards 96/

But I don't know if it's the right version that you need or not. You could always try it and see I suppose but I don't know what folder it would go into. Maybe Windows (C:\Windows).

Perhaps try IrfanView. It' a free photo editor.

I have an older fujitsu scanner (ScanPartner 3091DC) that was in the closet for around 8 years and recently tried to use it again. Black and white scans seem ok, but when I try photo scans, the color is strange looking.
http://picasaweb.google.com/mgeldert/TroublePhoto?feat=directlink

There's also some lines running through the picture. I tried cleaning the glass on the scanner.

Anyone seen this type of thing before? I'm thinking about just getting a new scanner since parts are probably more expensive than a new scanner (and i'm not sure parts are available anyway).

Whatever video I play in media center shows up as an odd color. IE red shows up green and green shows up red. The in game video I record using fraps shows up fine. if someone sends an email to me with a video, the video is all jacked up in regards to color. I tried adjusting the enhancements to correct the hue color saturation etc.. the slider moves but no change in the coloring. I tested a different media player and all videos run great. So the vid card and the cable and the screen settings are not the issue. I have ran the media player on another monitor. I am running 64 bit vista ultimate.

Installed denim a few weeks ago and it's taken me some time to notice, but the automatic screen brightness doesn't work now.
I only seem to have Low, Medium, and High. If I go to settings > brightness and enable Automatically adjust, the toggle moves to on but it still doesn't work. If then I go back and go into brightness again, it's disabled. Has anyone else had this issue after installing denim?
Also denim seems to have affected the screen rotation. After a few days, the rotation will be really delayed. i.e. if I turn my screen, it takes about 10 seconds to catch up and rotate the app.

Answer:Is automatic brightness adjustment broken on Lumia 930 after denim?

Hi All I am new to this forum, and a fairly new owner of an Ideapad Z570. I use the Ideapad prodominantly for image manipulation and seem to have a bit of an issue with it adjusting the screen when you preview an image using windows image viewer. This is not an issue when opening images in Photoshop, but when using the windows standard program to view an image, the following symbol pops up and pushes the contrast of the screen setting right up to make the image look 'better', then reverts back to normal when you close the image.  This is a bit of a nightmare as I have calibrated the screen. As I said its not happening with Photoshop so its not the end of the world, but pretty annoying. Is there a way you can turn this function off? Any help greatly appreciated

I had updates set to download and then ask me which ones I wanted to install. But it only worked like that for a short time, then it started installing automatically.

After Patch Tuesday this week, everything started crashing. I did a system restore to the point before the updates, and most things are now working okay. But when I try to shut down the PC, the automatic updates start installing again, and there's no way to turn them off. Selecting manual updates has no effect, they still come automatically. If I uncheck all the updates in the list of 'important updates available' they only stay unchecked until I close the updates window - when I reopen it, they're all checked again.

I did a full system virus scan, but it found nothing infected.

I would be very grateful for any insights into this. Has anyone else had trouble with this week's updates? I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.

I hope this is posted in the proper forum
This a networked printer which is connected to a server. At each client computer, the True Color is changed to Monochrome (black & white).
For most users/client computers, it works as it should. That is, it prints in black only unless manually changed to print in color for special purposes.
I have a couple client computers, however, that no matter how many times a day it is changed (and that often times is for every print job sent to the printer), it will still print in color.

Does any one know what setting I have overlooked that will stop this insanity? I have thought to turn it off at the server; however, the reason for the color printer is that there are special jobs to be printed in color.

I appreciate your time and help. Thanks!

I didn't see a similar thread on this so I'm starting a new one on color calibration setting for built-in laptop screen. (this can be found in your CCC Advanced Settings menu, under "My Built-In Displays, Display Color"). My interest in this stems from having and seeing correct colors for digital photography on my laptop when using photoshop.  What Catalyst Control Center (CCC) setting do you use for your Y560 laptop monitor calibration?  I had bought a pro-level APS LED monitor and used a recommended color-corrected profile for that model downloaded from a website. Then I adjusted the Y560 laptop monitor's colors by comparing it to the stand-alone monitor's display results. The settings I got that matched the APS monitor's colors are as follows: Hue: 4Saturation: 110Brightness: 0Contrast: 100Color Temperature: 6800K I have a Y560d laptop, intel i720, windows 7 64-bit, with ATI5730 video card. I have the latest bios, and latest ATI drivers as per this forum. My setting in the one-key theater is "Normal" to do away with auto-adjustment issues.

Answer:The image color in Windows Photo Gallery is wrong, same image in other program color is correct.

Windows photo gallery is not colour profile aware, so assumes your monitor is sRGB.  The same is true of the desktop wallpaper.  There is nothing you can do about this, other than use a different default picture viewing application as default, or convert your images to the ICC profile of your monitor (which you can do in photoshop).  I would only recommend this for wallpapers though.

Only the standard Yellow indicator will appear if the drivers are installed from our support website, but this issue seems to be with other software installed in the computer which performs the same action.

I would like to reinstall Norton 360 Internet Security Version 5, I know there are those out there that hate Norton and the overhead that comes with it, but over the years I've gotten used to it and I like it very much.

My Laptop's been fine for 2 years...when I'm on battery, I switch the wifi off via the switch on the laptop. However, all of a sudden, the Wifi won't turn on again! The switch isn't broken (I've moved it back and forth), and I've tried the software switch ( Fn+F5), but that doesn't work either! I dual boot Windows 8+7, and neither OS has wifi on. I've also tried uninstalling drivers/disabling the adapter via Device Manager, but no luck! I also went into the BIOS, disabled the adapter through there, launched Windows 8, then rebooted and reenabed the Wifi, and that didn't work either =(.EDIT: Windows troubleshooting says "Turn on wireless capability: Use the switch on the front or side of the comptuer, or function keys if available, to enable wireless capability on this computer".My warranty ended over a year ago!Paying to send in the laptop for this would suck. Help!

I received my ideapad Y560 on monday of this week and it had been working fine. Last night i was using the laptop when all of a sudden the screen froze and the display essentially turned staticy and jagged. I held down the power button to turn off the machine so i could restart it but when i went to turn it back on several light turned on, i could hear the fan come on and the hard drive spinning but the screen did not turn on at all and nothing happened. Now the machine refuses to turn on at all. I noticed that the laptop seemed to be running hotter than usual last night so i dont know if it overheated or something like that. Any ideas on what could be wrong? I am more than a little irritated that my brand new machine has ceased working 2 days after i received it.

Answer:Brand New Ideapad Y560 Problem (machine wont turn on)

My computer did the exact same thing, except that it skipped straight to the 'doing nothing' phase. It turned out to be a faulty motherboard. I suggest you take advantage of your warranty and send your machine in.

I am using photo shop to add a person to an existing picture. In other words I have a picture with a family member. I now want to cut an image of another family member out of a different picture and insert it into the first one. I am able to do this but I find that the color tone, brightness, contrast etc... does not match. Is there some way to match the color tone of the image i am inserting to what already exists?

thanks
 

Answer:photo hop color tone

I am not a PhotoShop guy, but have worked with photos and video for many years. You should be able to take your add on picture and tone it down or brighten it up with any program before you cut it out to paste. The big problem lies with shadows or where the lighting angle comes from.
The 2 pictures should match.

This is something that perplexes me - I have two computers running Windows 10 Pro, one's a desktop and one's a laptop.

I used WinAeroTweaker to "enable" the Windows Photo Viewer for image files, since I prefer it to the newer "Photos" app.

When I open a picture on my desktop, the background color is some ugly yellowish off-white color. It's the normal shade on my laptop (as well as at work, where I have 10 Enterprise)

Here are a couple comparison shots using the same image.

On the laptop (I like this color)
On the desktop:
See how it's a yellower color? And what's weird is the white text in the background is ALSO that yellow color.

I know when I open Photoshop, I get some message about an invalid monitor color profile, so I'm thinking Windows created some "profile" for my monitor that it's trying to adjust colors to match, and it's really doing nothing but causing trouble.

My monitors look fine with just the standard un-adjusted colors that Windows 7 had, and other "dumb" programs like Paint. But the photo viewer seems to do what Photoshop is trying to do and adjust my colors for some reason.

Is it possible to wipe those color profiles and just tell it to treat the monitor like a generic PnP monitor without anything special? I'm using DVI so it's able to query the monitor and find its model... other than that, I don't really know what's going on.

I've got a slideshow of images set as my desktop background, and under the Personalization settings for Colors I have the three settings "Automatically pick an accent color", "Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center" and "Make start, taskbar, and action center" all switched to On.

The problem is the accent color selection does not automatically refresh when the slideshow rolls to the next image. I have to either send the computer to sleep and wake it up, or toggle the "Automatically pick an accent color" slider in order to get it to refresh. Needless to say this is pretty impractical and I end up just sitting through the whole day with an accent color that only matches the first image of the slideshow.

Does anybody have an explanation, solution or workaround for this problem? It's really bothering me because it was working perfectly in windows 8 and it looks pretty ugly on some of the combinations that roll around.

If it helps anybody identify a fix, it looks like the super-thin window border telling you which window has focus is still updating color correctly, but nothing else, anywhere, does at all.

Answer:Change Windows Photo Viewer Background Color

You have to open registry and go to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Viewer

Then on right panel , right click and create a new DWORD 32 bits you should name as " BackgroundColor " ( without the quotes )
set an hexadecimal value with this format ffC70490 for example in pink ( you have to always begin with ff followed by the 6 color code as you find .here :

Hex color codes, schemes and harmonies.

replace then the # with ff before the 6 next characters code

I purchased an HP 6735b laptop, designed for Windows Vista, without a hard drive. I purchased a hard drive and installed Windows 7 Professional. I did all of the important and critical updates from the Microsoft website and updated all drivers using Slim Drivers. Somewhere along the line the screen brightness dimmed and wouldn't allow me to adjust it.

Through the device manager, I found the display adapter, which is ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. Went to ATI website for updated driver and found the latest for 3200, which I installed. It appeared to work, I was able to adjust the brightness back up.
However, when I shut the laptop off and start it again the screen is dimmed. The hot keys (FN + F10) will not work, but when I type in "adjust screen brightness" and go to the screen that allows you slide the bar up and down to adjust the brightness it suddenly pops into the pre-adjusted brightness setting.

I've tried to go to the AMD website and download their program that makes sure the drivers are updated, but after the program loads, you click on the button to search, I receive an message that says "Sorry, something went wrong".

Hi, I didn't activate any of these programmes, they were all automtically activated with the computer. My photos, films and music are automatically duplicated across all three programmes eating up memory space. I do not use media centre or photo gallery: If I delete photos from any of these programmes, the photos are deleted from the entire computer and lost completely, which I do not want - I want to keep all on just 1 programme, preferably picasa. Preferably I do not want to uninstall the programmes, I just want to have control over what is uploaded and where. How can I safely remove files from photo gallery / media centre and not lose these files from picasa? Please help and I will be eternally grateful and a lot less frustrated!! Thank-you..

Answer:Help to STOP automatic upload of EVERYTHING to media centre, photo gallery and picasa

Welcome to TSF!

If you delete a picture from one program, and it disappears from all, then there is only one copy. Each program is just showing you the same file, probably in your Pictures folder (C:\Users\Username\Pictures).
In the same fashion you can use any text editor (Notepad, Wordpad, Notetab, Notepad++, etc) to view the same text file in your Documents folder. Just because they can all see the file, doen't mean there are multiple copies.

Use the program you want and don't worry about the others.

My question is, is there another way to turn it off it doesn't tell you, or should I just get my money back? I hate how it says you have complete control over whether you want it on, and I have to jump though hoops to make sure it's not on.

Hi, i hope you can help. I cannot turn on automatic updates in XP Media centre edition. I have read many threads about the problem and i believe i have a virus infection preventing me from turning it on. I have followed the steps detailing how to go into services and locate Automatic updates click on properties etc, however automatic updates is not one of the services listed, even in extended view. The download updates (recommended radio button is checked) and appears to be OK, however i get the windows security alert in the task bar and when i click to turn on i get a message saying it cant. I also get a message when trying to update direct from web site than there is an error and it cant update.

PS i am also getting unusuall redirects, not all the time but occassionally.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Cant Turn on Automatic Updates

XP Home Security 2012 was removed from my pc just before i noticed this problem with the windows updates. It is for this reason i believe my pc has become compromised, i dont want to continue using utill this is checked out, i believe it could lead to further infections. I do internet banking and this is essential for me. Please accept this additional information, i dont want to bump up unintentionally but it may be relavant to my case.

Answer:how do i turn off the automatic sign in

Yahoo has an auto-fill that remembers your sign-in information. Here's some info on that:https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2164.htmlIt may be separate from the 'keep me signed in' option.

First off, I'm on Dial-up and this Automatic Update feature is killing me.
I have turned it off, but its still downloading stuff.



I've even tried blocking it (Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services) access to the internet in Zone Alarm, but if I do that, I can't even access the web. I don't think its a virus, because I scanned multiple times with an updated AVG.

Can I just disable it from starting up to begin with?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:How Do I Turn Off Automatic Updates?

seems like you are experiencing a file corruption there.

I think this is a Microsoft issue. Well, anyway, my computer remembers everything I have typed into certain fields - from address lines to Google searches. Getting hubby surprise gift for b-day and don't want him to get suspicious. How can I erase the memory and keep it from happening in the future? (Most concerned about internet searches)

Hi, I have Windows 8.1 and notice when I leave my computer for a while, it plays a slideshow using images in my "My Pictures" folder. Here is a video of it:

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlink

Clicking the mouse will show one of 2 things:

1) A purple background with my Account name, which then auto-logins and takes me to the desktop, or

2) A screen that is either black or shows my webcam, with an unlock buttom on the bottom left which takes me to the desktop (sometimes it freezes though and I have to power the laptop off/on): https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-k...315_173220.jpg

Anyone know how to turn this slideshow off? I would prefer my computer to stay on the desktop.

Thanks

Hi!
I have w8.1 Pro 64bit and I have 2 LOCAL accounts -
First is 'my' account which is administrator and pw protected
Second 'Guest' account which dosent have any pw

Most commonly any member of my family goes in my computer under Guest account and here goes the fun..

For example I go to sleep i log out or shut down my pc.. member of my family turns on and in account login automaticly goes to my pw protected account, he/she has to press the little back arrow to show all the users and go inside Guest account. Now he/she has done work he/she shuts down the pc. In the next morning I power on my pc AND HE AUTOMATICLY logs in/goes into guest account, so i have to wait those valuable 5-10 seconds as he loads in(and yes this IS annoying if it happenes once or twice a day), then I need to press sign out and then I can press to my admin account write pw and login into my acc!
So basicly he rememberes last user and automaticly logs in, if the user dosent have pw then he proceeds in signing in if it has pw then it stops to a pw..

How to change this? I want when i power on, he goes into account login screen(where he show all the accounts) and when I press the acc I want - as it always has been!

P.S. Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup from this turtarial I have check'ed the box from option one step 3, but guest acc dosent have any pw so its useless....

Answer:how to turn off automatic updates in Win 10

If it's a Windows 10 update: Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services>Windows Update>Disable. You shouldn't leave it like that. You really have to re-enable and start updating.

Hi, Turning on my computer screen remains blank. I have tried all possible means to repair the failure, even taking off and putting back the memory chips. Led light near caps lock blinks once meaning that there is a failure in CPU. Are there any ways to try to repair the failure by my self? Before with the same failure it helped to perform a hard reset.
