Gamma correction not holding
A couple of months ago I had a situation with the gamma level in the display. Now, there are two ways to deal with this: one is via the Control Panel > Color Correction which takes you to a series of adjustment tests and the other is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver panel which is accessed via Desktop > Graphics Properties.
The IGMAD also has a color correction tab which allows for some simple correction and that's the one I used which effectively made for the gamma level I was looking for. Mind you, I first tried the adjustments test in the CP but they wouldn't hold after a few starts. The IGMAD was a bit better in that it would hold through more starts but eventually it too reverts to a darker, low gamma display.
Lastly, I read somewhere that Adobe Photoshop also has its own color settings so what I end up is the trinity of Control Panel, IGMAD and Adobe. Just today when I started up I noticed the desktop image even darker than what it was before. Again I went to Desktop > Graphics Properties and a simple click on the IGMAD brought everything back to speed. Yet, I notice that after a couple of hours the display does get the slightest bit darker, nothing that would really affect anything yet it is subtly noticeable.
Lastly, I do have an older monitor but I'm thinking that if it were the monitor then anything with the "trinity" wouldn't matter. Anyway, that's my take on that aspect.
So, does anyone have an idea as to what's going on or suggestions as to how I should go about correcting this - and which of the trinity - for a more permanent effect?
