OS: Windows XP
Monitor: ViewSonic E771-2 (Driver installed is also ViewSonic E771-2.)
Intel Graphics Controller 82810E DC-133
This used computer has color problems. I had it connected to an old monitor, and assumed at first that the problem was with that monitor.
Now I have connected this computer to my keyboard, video, and monitor via a Belkin KVM switch. My old computer uses the same monitor with zero problems (also XP, also with the E771-2 driver, but it's a DELL).
The graphics controller has some great software attached to it. I opened the Graphics Controller Properties and clicked on the "Color" tab. Here, there are slides for "Gamma," "Brightness," and "Contrast." Moreover, you can adjust all three colors together or each one independently. I noticed that when I adjust the Green channel by itself, there is no visible change to the display.
I have not opened the box, yet. Do I need to replace the entire chipset? Is there a separate video card in here? Maybe there is a software solution? Any advice will be appreciated.
