I have a GTX 650. Every time my monitor or PC turns on or comes out of sleep, the color settings are reset to the windows default (a crappy washed out color scheme). I use the NVIDIA Control Panel to set my settings (adjust desktop color settings). When a slider on there is moved at all, the colors snap back to what NVIDIA set.
I've googled my problem, which led me to mess with the color management program that comes with the OS. The interface of it is not well explained and very confusing.
Clicking profiles -> "combine my settings with system defaults" should logically fix it, but it doesn't.
Clicking "change system defaults" pops up an almost exact clone of the color management window, which doesn't help at all.
Is there some way to export an ICC file from the NVIDIA control panel and set it as the default? Am I missing something obvious?

Hey,

A few things, is auto contrast / brightness etc. running? Could force a takeover from the NVIDIA

 

What the temp and status of the card etc.  I know it sounds totally weird, but again could force a shut down and reset of default etc.

Drivers and updates current?  No Beta types in there right?

Has this always been the case or did it just start?  Just started... roll back any drivers in the card etc.

 

Are you using this with 3d, Shadow, etc.

here is a Guide on Color Management for GTX650 current drivers

 

Or go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

How do I know if auto brightness/contrast are running? If they're processes, I dont think they are. This has always been the case, and I'm not sure if it's a problem with the GPU or the OS. Every once in a while (long after it's been reset), I remember to move a slider in the NVIDIA control pannel, think "ahh this is so much better," and then get frustrated because I know it won't last long and I'll have forgotten about it next time I use the computer.
