Windows 7: Color Issues

12 Jun 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Color Issues

I'm running (2) Asus 24 inch monitors @ 1920x1080 & (1) Dell 17 inch monitor @ 1280x1024. The (2) Asus monitors are on a Nvidia GT440 on DVI & HDMI (adapted to DVI), the Dell only has a VGA port and is on an Nvidia GT610. My question is why do all (3) monitors display the colors differently? I've tried every adjustment possible in the Nvidia Control Panel, and I can't make the colors visually the same. (even very close would be OK) Is this a HDMI vs DVI vs VGA issue? Or, does anyone have any suggestions to get the colors to match other than (3) identical video cards and (3) identical monitors? This is a particularly evident on my triple screen wallpapers. Both video cards run the same driver, and it is, as is all my software, up to date.

Monitors should have their own hardware control panel from the physical 2-3 buttons they have (menu, up, down, set).
They should usually have a setting to correct manually colors displayed, brightness, saturation and whatnot.
