Best tool to calibrate lcd monitor


My system has 4 monitors all from a different brand and are driven by 2 different model Nvidia card.

I had to re installed Nvidia and since all color, and luminosity has changed. I just cant get back to what I use to have before.

What is the best way to calibrate the monitors?
- Via the monitors setting button
- Via Nvidia control panel
- Via Windows setup

Is there a good software application to help?

Any help appreciated

Hmm I guess really you have answered the query arjfca - it seems highly likely that the monitors will have to be adjusted individually to suit the others - what you do about the different cards I am not sure, but I would hazard a guess at using the NVidia control panel as best you can to get them aligned up.

The Windows system is not one of my favourite adjusters to be honest because each time I reboot the brightness contrast and gamma all seem to return to default.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help but when this post comes up someone might just know what to do.

There's only one way: Calibrating all four with a Spyder5Elite.

I searched for such a solution for a long time and first tried with a Spyder4Express. Unfortunately, this one can't calibrate multiple monitors. So I asked Datacolor and they recommended me the Spyder5Elite. The software of this calibrator has got a «StudioMatch»-Function to exactly match multiple monitors (I have 3) together.

Worked like a charm. So give it a try. ;-)
