THIS is probably going to be very hard for everyone to understand.
It, more than likely will sound like babble because, frankly, I have been reduced to a Babbling Mass!
To start, I have a windows xp media center which is really the xp pro.
About two months ago I tried to update some of my drivers, (without knowing anything about doing so).
I first used a site called driveragent and took one of their Free 'introductory' driver updates.
I am not sure but "I Think" that they updated my bios.
I then updated my 163.75 display driver to the 169.xxx driver and That is where my problem began.
From that moment on, my screen colors have never been the same!
I have done the eztune thing (color adjust) about a Million times.
I have done the right click properties stuff in Every combination that can be done.
I have adjusted my monitor a thousand times and I have tried Every software download that promised to return my colors back to their original settings.
I have also posted in Every forum known to man and searched Google .. Endlessly for help.
The colors Just wont sync with the monitor (21" lcd) or return to where they were!
Now if that weren't enough: Since those driver updates, my specs went from the GeForce 6200 TurboCache display adapter to a GeForce 6100!!??
No One, not even the folks in the nvidia forms can explain That.
I rolled back to the 163.75 driver and .. it didn't matter, everything is still the same.
Still reads as a GeForce6100 on Belarc Advisor, Everest, and my own hardware list.
Oh heck, I don't care so much about the 6100-6200 thing, I just want my display colors back to normal.
I do think that the 6100-6200 thing has something to do with it though!
Yep, I even asked the techs at Gateway,(my pc) and Nvidia about all of this .. They're Stumped.
Also tried the restore thing.
Regardless of date, after thirty minutes of it looking like it's doing the restore, afterwards it (PC) always comes up with "Nothing has been changed, couldn't restore because of the Revo Uninstaller date! HUH?
Told you I was babbling. LOL
P.S. I hope that my rant made sense to someone.
I really need help.
