Windows 7: question about color gain and hue on and extended screen

question about color gain and hue on and extended screen

1st this is a Dell Inspiron 3541, OS win7 Home 32bit. I use my flat screen tv as an extended screen to put up things like maps when I am playing a gam or instructions when I am working on a project.

When in PC mode on the tv the color gain and hue controls are grayed out and I can't change them. I have the American south west desktop background theme that comes default with Win7 on my desktop. When the seen shows a tanish looking sagebrush and rocks on the laptop screen. There is a middle green look like the lawn in front of my apt building on the extended screen. The color gain is also to high. The only controls that work on the tv in PC mode is brightness and contrast. I was told that the color gain and hue were controled by Windows and that's were to change them. But I don't know how. I could use some help please.

Steve,

You can use the "Calibrate Color" setting in Control Panel -> Display to calibrate the color on whatever monitor you show the color window in. It's quite easy if you follow the directions. You get at it by this screen:

Good luck, and post back if you have any trouble.

I ran through the "Calibrate Color" step by step and the extended screen is still green. See the 2 attached screen capture pictures. The top picture is my laptop screen, the bottom picture is the extended screen. The extended screen is pretty much usable as is except for some doc's that have color highlighted word back grounds.

Extended Partition Question
Hello all. I was under the impression that an OS could not be operated from an extended partition; or does it not hold true for a multi (dual) boot? I'm going to use Brink's disk management as an example of what I'm asking. Thanks.
