I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and installed the most recent driver update for the 8600 GT. Since installing the driver, the color on my monitor has changed, with more of a reddish, overexposed look. The difference is particularly noticeable because you can see the color change a few seconds after startup when the desktop first shows up. The colors are normal for about 5 seconds, and then my the color change occurs. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this, how I could try to troubleshoot/fix it? Thanks.

I rolled back the driver. Seems to have fixed the problem. Strange.

Sometimes, the latest version of driver aren't the best, the older one can be more stable...
