  • Colours are off


    After trying to sync some PDAs by downloading several programs all of my colours are off.
    I have removed all download programs except Palm Desktop which works fine.
    Reds - are much darker than the original
    Greens - shows up as a lime green / yellow
    cyan - shows as a very light blue
    blues - are all lighter shades than originals

    magenta - seems ok

    This applies to MS Word, EXEL, AutoCad, and my Desktop plus anything else I work on.
    Even the web sites show some difference but nt as much.

    Is there any way to set the colours back to the originals.

    I attach my systems details

    Just guessing it sounds almost like you changed a setting on the monitor. Many monitors have a setting to give the colors a WARM or COOL look as not everyone sees things the same.

    I would take a look at the monitor and see if the settings got changed and if you can just set them to a different color range that you like. Take a look in your user manual on how to do that if you're not certain.

      Eureka - I found it

      Thanks for your help it was the monitor, but not the settings. I realy don't know what is wrong but i tried an old monitor and low & behold "no problem"

      With Flat screen LCD monitors so cheap now I may be able to convince my (much) better half
      that I really need a new LCD monitor.

      Thanks again for your help.
      Kind Regards
