So I got this new monitor, Dell P1130 21", and I did a color return because everything was a little pale, and it was ok then. After that I went away from the computer and when I returned it was you know, turned off, and when you hit a key on the keyboard or move the mouse it turns back on. Well I don't think I see a difference in Windows environment, but when I ran a game the display was kind of green. I was wondering now should I do a color return, and more importantly if I don't want to do color returns several times a day should I just disable the powering off from control panel > power options ?
But then it'll have to be running all night, illuminating my whole room, and of course, consuming more electricity.
I didn't have this problem with my old 17" Samsung, but it wasn't flat screen, maybe this is the reason it doesn't need "color returns" if it is turned off.
Also about my problem, well I don't think that's my problem anymore.
Now I discovered that my monitor has this green tint in games, while I don't think it's that obvious in Windows environment. What could be the problem ? The cables are all plugged and screwed in.
My video card is a Gigabyte 6600GT with 9*.** drivers..
I don't think that it should be losing its blue colors so early, it's only 2 years old. My brother's Sony e400 I think has a similar trinitron panel and his monitor isn't having this green tint yet and it's even older, I think 3years old
