Windows 7: Monitor settings/issues :(

09 Sep 2014   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
Monitor settings/issues :(


I've had two monitors for a while, but I've been annoyed with my Samsung S27B350. My Asus VW246 has loads of "modes", one being "game mode" making the colors a lot more vibrant and imo a lot better.
I've been trying to make the monitors look more or less identical, but my Samsung is apparently refusing to become more vibrant.

I was fiddling with AMD Catalyst Control Panel yesterday and realized I could only change display settings on my Asus, not my Samsung. So my Samsung monitor has a lot less options and worse colors etc.
Is there a way to get more vibrant colors on my Samsmung monitor?
The Samsung one only reacts to another panel called Intel Graphics Control Panel, as if they think they're using two different GPU's or something weird.

Thanks in advance!

Edit; My mind just blew up and I realized I had plugged the HDMI into the damn MOBO instead of GPU. So I COULD change the vibrance in the AMD Catalyst Control Panel. My bad.
