Question: When running a DVD from my PC to the TV the colour

is very poor.The card is an NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU.I noticed that the S video slot on the back of the pC has seven holes & the TV has four. The S Video cable i have used is only four.Is there any way i can correct the lack of colour, there is some but it is very poor.

Preferred Solution: When running a DVD from my PC to the TV the colour

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: When running a DVD from my PC to the TV the colour

Do you have the TV output from the graphics card set to the correct TV system (PAL or NTSC or even SECAM)?Normal S-video does have four only connectors, at least all those I've been associated with.

The top tool bar of my I Explorer 6 is patchy from pink to grey! When I draw a web page background using the gradient tool in Adobe Photoshop, and then display it as a jpeg in IE6,the color transirion across the gradient is not smooth. It has colored bars going across. I am running Win 98 on one partition and Win XP on another. All drivers & DirectX are up to date. The motherboard is a newish MSI Athlon board and the display adaptor is Radeon 9000 series.It works ok when viewed in Win 98 IE6 on the other partition. It must have somthing to do with XP or DirectX or a combination of both.Can anyone plese help solve the bad color display problem in IE?

My QMX Minolta 2200DL has started to leave a slight faint line down the print area. I've checked all consumables and other than the Magenta & Yellow Toners (50%) all others are showing 75% or above. This is not colour specific as I've done test prints of solid CMYK and moved the colours round on the page and the line is still showing in the same place.Any laser printer experts out there?Could there be something stuck on the imaging unit, transfer belt etc.Thanks

I have recently received a Dell Precision 5520 with the UHD display which is a fantastic machine and will be serving me well for the foreseeable future. However I have one rather large niggle which I cannot seem to rectify.
The display seems to be constantly over saturated. The reds and blues are very unnatural and make using the screen rather painful for me.

I have tried to change icc colour profiles using the ubuntu colour config tool to no avail. I have even use the colourmgr cli tool to also change the profile which also didn't work.
Strangely if I use a profile that should switch reds and green around, nothing happens which leads me to believe the icc colour profiles are not being honoured by the system.
Has anybody had the same problem and/or know of a solution.
Thanks in advance.

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.
Cheers!

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
OM
 

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.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello.

I seriously need help with my PC. I've reinstalled Windows XP and Service Pack 2, and I can't chnge the Screen resolution or the colour quality. It sucks. The resolution stays at 800x600, the lowest possible, and the colour quality stays at 8 bit. I think I have a ATI 128 MB DDR Radeon 9800 Pro. I dunno whether thats a driver or what. And I also don't know my graphics card, or whether that will help at all.

I would swear at this point but I'm too young.

Oh but I'll use this instead

Has anyone got any help for me that I can understand. I'm 14 but I still can understand most computer talk.

Anyway thanks very much for reading all this crap and please try not to point out all my spelling mistakes.

Answer:[resolved]Help with resolution and colour and colour quality??.. anyone??

Heya, welcome to the forums


Okay, it has to do with your drivers. Go to ATI's website and find your driver.

Here's the link

Please download and install both the Control Center as well as the Display driver. Then restart your computer and try to change the resolution.

Hi Allhope someone more knowledgable can advise - I recently purchased a Lexmark x500n multifunction colour laser printer - I had a big black print job to do excel and word - 2000 pages - i was shocked to see that - ok the black starter cartridge of 2500 pages was nearly empty- fair enough - but all three colour cartridges (1500 page size) were nearly all empty too - I hadn't done any colour printing but when i contacted the manuf they advised that the printer uses colour also to print black!! - it's getting returned to them - but do do all colour lasers do this - obviously this quadruples the costs of printing and has put my costing out of the window!! - any advice would be great - it's a network colour printer, with copier and scanner that I need - a fax would be great but not essential.thanks in advanceTrifly

Answer:COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

That would pee me off no end. How in God's name can it use colour to create black when there's a black cartridge in there? A cheapo mono laser seems to be your ideal tool. I know nothing about colour laser printers, but is there an option anywhere in the settings to print using only the black cartridge? Does the printer still work if you take out the colour cartridge while printing only black text documents?

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!

Quote from: blackrainbow on June 17, 2010, 08:31:21 AMmobile intel 915 gsm chipsetThe problem most likely lies in this, as the Intel chipsets are not designed for 3D gaming and can't handle the stress.You're probably right, it's not a driver issue, it's a hardware one. It's not a problem, it's just that you've reached the limit to what the Intel video chipset can do.

I like using "windguru" for forecasting the weather. Based in the Czech Republic, they're usually spot on which is more than I can say for the local effort.

Until recently I used Netscape 7.2 and subsequent to that Opera vers 11. These both colour coded the wind speeds and gusts and the expected temperatures; you know ranging from blue for cold to red for hot. For various reasons I have had to make use of IE-8. I can't get anything in colour. Temperatures and wind speeds are just black numerals on a white background. I've searched through IE's options but can't find any tweak to resolve this. The URL is www.windguru.cz and I'm running XP home. Can anyone help?

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

Answer:4 bit colour - why?

to connect to the internet in safe mode you have to select safe mode with networking

But sorry thats all I can offer at the moment

Thank you. Mike

Answer:Colour representation

What program are you using when printing your digital prints? When printing photo's etc from other sources do they differ as-well. The type of paper you are using can greatly effect the colour output, I found using 180 photo paper from click here improved colour output, the ilford paper available from pc world was pretty good to. You may need to set-up your monitor and the colour profile for your printer. Most photo programs have a gamma set-up program to adjust your monitor correctly, have a look at click here and click here to check your monitor.Your printer may then need setting up to match the profile of the monitor. I am using an Epson C70 and I had to set my profile as RGB colour scale. You will find this setting in printer properties in colour management. You could also go into the custom advanced settings of the main Epson print page and adjust the levels of brightness/contrast or the ink levels.

Have a problem with a system that has on a number of occasions changed the desktop from Olive Green to to a muddy blue and all pages and shortcuts to a shade of pink. The machine is otherwise perfectly normal though printing of photographs is no longer possible due to colour changeDid first remove and reinstall the Radeon 9600 card but without result. At other times have tested all plug ins, insured all tight home, and the system has returned to normal but only for a short period...all cable connections checked also.Unless anyone can advise otherwise it could be that the 128 mb Radeon 9600 (XP) pro card is suspect and I would appreciate info re a suitable replacement. An increase to 256 mb would be an advantage but not essential because I do not use for games and do not wish to spend more than is necessary.The PC is a Microland unit purchased shortly before the company failed and luckily has been OK to date...but so much for 2 + 1 year warranty.Any advice is very welcome.Regards.

Answer:Screen "OFF" Colour

Is this on a CRT monitor? If so, try a "degauss". If this doesn't work, I am a firm believer in "percussive maintenance", so give it a light but firm slap on the side or the top of the monitor. If that still doesn't work, one of the cathode rays maybe on the fritz and the only resolution then is to put your hand in your pocket and buy a new monitor.PLEASE don't hit it if it's a TFT monitor!

Answer:[resolved] colour gone???

I would think your monitor plug is not seated well. Make sure everything sits well. I would disconnect and connect all the cables/wires. If this is not the issue go ahead and swap your videop drivers with the new ones. What kind of videocard do you have ?

For a while now ive noticed that my games don't appear to be running in 32 bit colour mode. I notice in particular when a texture uses a range of shades from a single colour (e.g. dark blue to light blue), where you can see a 'banding' effect and doesn't look smooth as it should.

I've tried switching between 16 and 32bit colour and it doesnt appear to make any difference in games (using the game setup menus), they both look exactly the same. I've tried doing the same on my desktop (Windows), and you can clearly see a difference between the 2 colour ranges. So I don't seem to have any problems in 2D enviroments, just 3D (games in this case).

I've looked through the settings in the graphics card setup (Anti aliasing/texture filtering options etc), and I cant see anything that would related to this problem, i.e no colour mode options.

I've tried running games in different resolutions and updating my graphics card drivers, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

I really have no idea what to do next.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

CPU: P4 3.4

Answer:My Games Won't Run In 32 Bit Colour

Are you sure the games support it? 32bit via panel is windows native.

Hi. Am a primary school teacher who'd like a colour printer at home for convenience (print about 100 items a week on average: nearly all Word documents). Recently bought a Kodak LS 743 digital camera, so would like a printer which is compatible with this, fairly cheap to run & good pic quality. I would not print photos that often - perhaps once a month.Am I expecting too much for that price?

Answer:best colour printer under £100?

This one should do you nicely. It accepts SD type memory cards, which your digital camera uses.click here

Question: changing colour

hiI would like to know if you can manually change the colour of the taskbar and the active window boxes etc in display properties box.when i right click on the desktop and go in appearance i have only got blue, silver and olive green. this is on xp home tho.can i alter it myself or do i have to download and pay for packages to do it. I have tried to do it myself but to no avail.in advance i can alter the active/inactive title boxes but then the colour only changes as the box does then goes back to the original setting or blue/silver or green.hope i made some sense!!!!

Answer:changing colour

The appearance of Windows can be changed very easily by the user.1. Click on Start > Control Panel > Display2. When the Display box opens click on either "Themes" or "Appearance"3. Modify as necessaryTip : Before making any changes make a note of the current settings so that you can go back to them if you don't like the changes that you have made.

Hello Lenovo, I would like to know, if w530 support 30bit color on display port, and if yes upto which resolution. I am going to connect EIZO monitor (EIZO SX2762W-BK )and would like to know if anybody has experience with this. I heard that some people had problems with resolution 2560x1440 + 30bit color depth. Thank youMartin

Answer:30 bit colour support

Total speculation but I think it's possible as the external ports are driven by the NVIDIA card, which isn't limited as the Intel card is.2560x1440 at 30bpp at 60Hz may be hitting a bandwidth issue even for DisplayPort.

Question: colour printer

Hi
I just printed out a colour photo using the HP PSC2410. I discovered that if a drop of water falls on it, it wipes away the color off the picture, in other waords it is a temporary print. is there any way i could make the prints permananet or am i using the wrong paper(HP glossy print) or am i using some temporary ink(HP supplied as well).

Answer:colour printer

quite common. your printing with ink...most ink will rub if you drop water on it. write on a peice of paper and it will do the same. However, on most photo quality paper, the ink pretty much stays on there if water gets on there. If you want to print out a photo and make sure nothing wrecks it, you can buy stuff to coat them. Or you could just shove it in an album/frame so no water will ever get on it

Satellite Pro L20 PS25E with Intel 915 mobile videocard is connected to PAL TV and gives only bw picture. Settings set to PAL BG in videocard, still only B&W picture. Other forums say this card ALWAYS give NTSC picture and cannot produce PAL coulour. Is this true?

Hope not, as I bought three laptops of this type and was wanting to connect these to tv's throughout the home. Any help appreciated;)

Answer:Satellite Pro L20 - No colour on TV

Hi retrieber_1,

Usually if you only get a black & white picture it?s a wrong output setting of your notebook. I think it?s something wrong with PAL and NTSC settings.
At first you should update the display driver. Newest driver you can download from Toshiba page.

And what cable you are using for this connection? S-VHS cable?
If yes test another cable. Use a high quality cable, especially if you have a pretty long cable.

A bit of a strange request, but after searching everywhere that I can think of for hours, I can't seem to find a solution.

I am a teacher, and several of my pupils have a problem reading anything on a white background. I can often change the colour of backgrounds, but there are certain applications where it's not possible.

So, rather than ask how to remove a colour cast from my monitor, I'd like to be able to overlay a blue or pink colour cast on my entire monitor - can anybody tell me about any software which has this functionality? I'd like it to be configurable and easily 'turn off and onable.'

Alternatively - any easy to use colour profile management tools for windows xp? The microsoft color management control panel plugin doesn't seem to make it possible to achieve what I want.

Many thanks,
Mike

Some of the icons have a pinkish tinge in the background, in particular the Control Panel ones.The desktop icons are ok and almost all the other ones.

I think it may be the motherboard on the way out?

I updated the Video card to a NVIDIA GEFORCE 2 64 MEG AGP CARD, changed monitors and I still have the problem.

Hey guys.

This is my second time with this issue and I'd like some help with it. Been looking online and I can't find anything.

Basically, I'm using my computer:

Windows 7 Home Edition x64 bit
i7-860 quad core 2.8Ghz
6gb ram
Nvidia Gts 240 (soon to be replaced)

And at seemingly random times, the taskbar along the bottom of the page which is normally transparents turns a sort of bright blue/white colour along with the tab bar at the top of whatever I'm using at the time, usually an internet browser. When this happens I can then hear the fans inside my machine spinning up, I open up RealTemp and the temperature shoots up. The first time it did it It went from around 20 to I think 100 because RealTemp marked one of my cores as "logged" today when it did it the max it got to was about 60. But I wasn't doing anything such as playing a game, I had Skype, Opera and maybe Steam open all at the same time and it got to about 60 degrees in a matter of seconds, then after staying there for about half a minute came back down to around 20.

Any ideas?

I thought it might of been the heat sink, but it seems to be securely fasted. I bought some quality thermal paste and I plan to remove the paste that is currently on my CPU and replace it with this. Is there anything else anyone could reccomend?

Answer:Windows 8.1 colour

Hi, Welcome to Eight forums.

I would suggest to create a new account and try if the issue is solved. Here's how you can do that. User Account - Add a New User in Windows 8

If new user account fixes this, then you can check for any third party app that can cause this issue in your main profile.
You can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "Clean Boot." A Clean Boot helps eliminate software conflicts. Here's how to perform Clean boot.

Run a system file checker scan and check if that helps. Refer the following steps to run SFC scan.
a) Move the mouse pointer to bottom left of the screen where you see preview of start menu and Right-click to bring up a list of Windows settings.
b) Click on ?Command Prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt. Note: Click ?Yes? if it prompts for permission.
c) In the command prompt type in the following command: ?sfc /scannow?.

Let us know if it helps.

Also go into Safe Mode and see if it is the same.
