How to calibrate my new monitor..

10 posts in this topic

Hy. Just purchased a new display (Dell S2440L) and I'd like to find out any free solution for calibrating it..it's colors are pretty wierd and I'm sure these can be optimized.

- Also..currently is connected through vga to IGPU (GPU from CPU). I'll connect it with hdmi cable to my official video-card..there will be improvements and will require new calibration?

Thanks!

Calibrators, IMHO, are a piece of garbage. If colors look weird on your screen, you probably have a distorted connection. You had this problem back with CRT's, but not with LCD/LED's.

So HDMI connection will come with improvements? Are there any(performance) differences between HDMI cables on market ?

Have a look at this website:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm#d

You're in luck that your model is listed. Just set your monitor settings to the recommended ones there and then download and install the icc profile.

The settings will be different for every monitor, but that should get you some way to having accurate colours.

Thanks.. RGB can't be set individually..just select RGB and that's all :|

Where it says "Preset Modes", change it from "Standard" to "Custom Color". That should then let you set the RGB values manually.

Thanks..but I have one more question : I've connected the display by using the HDMI cable and the image is not enlarged on the entire screen..just on the middle with a black border around it. Which could be the cause? Missing monitor drivers or?

Need to set it to wide/full settings. You're probably on normal settings.

It's probably something weird with your graphics drivers. Some graphics drivers assume you're connecting to a TV when you use HDMI and use weird settings. If you're using AMD catalyst drivers, I think the option you want in the catalyst control centre is under "My Digital Flat Panels > Scaling Options". Then play around with the underscan/overscan setting till it's right. I'm sure there is a similar option somwhere for Nvidia cards.
