NVIDIA drivers and Display Link USB video adaptor
I hope this piece of info will help some other poor soul out there some frustration.
I have a laptop with a NVIDIA 485M graphics card in it running the 266.96 drivers. Attached to that are two external monitors - one via the laptop's standard DVI port and the other via a Display Link USB video adaptor dongle.

I have set my own custom colour/brightness/hue etc settings using the NVIDIA control panel that are setup to override settings made by other programs.
If I reboot the laptop with the Display Link USB dongle attached and the third (USB) screen was active in Windows prior to the reboot, the NVIDIA driver fails to return to the custom settings.
To fix this you have to disable the screen attached via the USB dongle (Desktop/right click/Screen resolution/Disable this display) after you reboot then click on the NVIDIA colour settings and/or move one of the sliders for the custom settings to return.
You can then re-enable the USB attached screen.
