I recently received a refurbished EVGA GTX 670 SC from newegg. From the moment I plugged it in I noticed the saturation was a bit heavy. Mostly in reds and oranges, greens seeming a bit brighter as well. I replaced the DVI cable suspecting it might have been the cause but the problem is still apparent. Is it even possible the GPU could be doing this? Is it something I can simply fix with a bit of tweaking? I am running 3 monitors on this card and the problem is only on one DVI port.
Okay so in your surround setup you end up with a color saturation issue with the card. Have you tried it as a single monitor? And did you have this issue prior to you buying the 670 or did you buy it all at once?
I noticed the problem when I upgraded from a GTX 470 to the 670. I just did some experimenting..
Monitor 1 (Far left) was an HDMI connection while monitor 2 (middle) was a DVI. Monitor 1s color looked correct while monitor 2 was having the saturation problem. I switched the cables on the monitor end and the problem reversed. Now monitor 1 has the saturation while monitor 2 looks correct.
The DVI Cable is brand new, I replaced it upon suspecting it was the cause.
Well I'll explain my logic here. We have rules out its a monitor thing yes? So the next thing I was asking you to do was go do just one monitor you went down to do but go down to one and see if it persists. Because I was trying to see if perhaps it was something that was driver related or something that was card related. Also there are color options with Nvidia control panel.
Okay so I would either blame the card which you could do because with your previous card I take it didn't do this otherwise you wouldn't have brought it up. So since you had just purchased the item I would return it and say that you are experiencing weird color saturation issues with the card and believe it to be defective.
Well I would do a clean install so I would remove the drivers firstly and then run in with driver sweeper to get rid of the registery tid bits left over. And then re-install the drivers. Latest would be 310.90. I'll supply a link so you don't have to go through 3 pages to get there
