Default Color Settings

Q: Default Color Settings

Good Morning,

I am looking for an instructional as to help me change the color settings in Windows 7 to the default color settings in Windows XP so I can run a tool in Microsoft Excel.

Preferred Solution: Default Color Settings

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Default Color Settings

sure if it wil do the trick for you, but have you tried the desktop right click - personalise, and select the Windows Basic theme?

Hello all, I'm new here.

I have a question:

We have windows XP home edition and our monitor is pretty old. It does have an updated graphics driver, however, which I just downloaded (it's an intel graphics media accelerator driver).

Everything works just fine, it's just that the screen is very dark. So I went in and changed the gamma/contrast/brightness settings on the graphics driver and got it to how I want it. That works fine as well, it's just that everytime you log off/on, turn the computer on in the morning, or run a full screen program it reverts back to the default settings.

I saved my settings as a scheme, but I don't know what to do from there. The weird part is that when I go into the graphics driver when it has reverted to the default settings, the settings it appears to be set on are the ones I want, but it's actually set on the default settings (even though mine are shown). If I simply click on one of the bars that adjusts the gamma/brigtness/contrast, even if I don't change it, the screen goes back to the settings that I want (the ones that are shown).

So, is there a way to have the screen always be the same gamma/brightness/contrast for every user and even when running a full screen program, without ever having to touch the driver again?

Thank you for your time

A:Default XP Color Settings

Before messing with video settings in the driver, you should adjust brightness and contrast with the buttons on the monitor casing (assuming it has any).

Hello everyone.

I want to color calibrate my new Dell XPS 15z laptop, but before I do I'd like to back up the existing color profile in case I prefer it to the calibrated one ...

The only problem is, when I open Color Management, NO default color profile is listed, so I don't know what to go back to. I know there HAS to be a default color profile somewhere ... How do I find it?

Thanks for any and all help you can offer!

A:No Default Color Profile Listed in Color Management?

You don't need to backup the default color profile...so don't worry about that.
Anyways its probably using sRGB IEC61966-2.1 you can see it in the advance tab.

Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

I am trying to set my monitor's screen give accurate renditions of my pictures. I use Quick Gamma to set gamma. When doing this I can use either Nvidia's controls or windows controls (right click desktop>Nvidia Control Panel. When using Nvidia's Control Panel, there are two choices: Use other applications control color settings or Use Nvidia settings.

First question: Am I correct in assuming that the former setting is Windows?

I always check the button to use Nvidia settings (and then Apply>OK), but when I go back to this screen at a later time, the Other applications control color settings is always selected. How come? I'd like to default to Nvidia.

Im runnin Win XP pro and recently installed service pack 3.
I have my desktop appearance color scheme set to silver but when I boot up/reboot it reverts back to the default blue (which is gross!). I heard it could be a spy/mal/ad ware problem so I've ran both Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware, both in normal and in safe mode, but to no avail.
Could it be related to the SP3 installation or is it something else?
And can i fix it?

I don't think it's too far into Januay to wish you all a Happy New Year. I feel really dumb asking this, but there you are: senility has to set in sometime! I cut and paste a lot, and print out online Xwords which don't give you a chance or a choice to change the font or its000 color.

Suddenly, my pastings are printing in a reddish-brown hue. I haven't messed with anything that I'm aware of, I'm ashamed to say that I can't figure out where or how to change the default back to black. I've been over every inch of settings (R/C on empty spot on desktop) but just can't see it. Or is it hidden away elsewhere? I want my black back LOL Any help would be appreciated.

If reddish brown is a clue to anything, it's the colour attributed to Visited Sites in Internet Options. Have a look on the General tab and click the Colour button - see if there's anything helpful in there.

Running XP on Medion 2.6 ghz. On startup, or on re-boot, when selecting my account name from initial screen (have 3 account names for family members), the color quality is reverting to 8 bit from 32 bit. I have gone into the properties menu for the Display properties, changed the quality back to 32 bit under Settings tab and saved as the desktop theme...but it still reverts to 8 bit with each new startup or reboot. This does not occur when starting under the other two account names. Where should I look-or to what function do I go to-to correct this annoying glitch. I am always able to change to 32 bit once started up and it stays as 32 bit until I either reboot or shut down and start again

How do I make color the default?


A:make color the default in printer

Open your Printer's icon in your "Control Panel>Printer's and Faxes"
There change the defaults for that printer.

Note: You can set up more than one printer icon for any one printer.
For example, I have two icons set for my one color printer. One is set for the default of printing in color, the other is set for the default of B&W.

That way, I can print using either "printer" depending upon whether I want color or not. No other selections are necessary.

You could also change the settings to print duplex (if your printer has that capability) or 2 sheets on one side of paper, etc. and have separate icons for those defaults, as well.

A:color settings in PS7

I would think the C screen would be normal opening any image you didn’t create in Photoshop. It isn’t likely that a digital camera etc is going to embed Nvida’s color system. You can set Photoshop up to convert to ColorMatch automatically without any intervention and you will no longer see warning screens.

I’m not sufficiently familiar with Nvida’s ColorMatch to know whether it is good as a working space. If your prints come out very close to your monitor it might be a good deal.

An alternative would be to run Adobe Gamma that comes with PS to match the monitor and use a common working space like sRGB or Adobe RGB. Most cameras put out sRGB I think and it matches most web browsers, but Adobe RGB is a little richer.

I bought a 32 Inch HD TV for myself for Christmas...I have it all hooked up and going...I absolutely love it except I'm having a slight problem with color settings. (TV is PC ready just plug and play or something like that. It is plugged in with a monitor cable I got at radio shack)

I have a 1 GB Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT with most current update from Nvidia.com, I also have all updates via windows update.

The problem I currently have is by default what I am seeing on the tv is very red. So I went to the Nvidia Control Panel and Color Settings tab where you can adjust brightness/contrast/gamma, digital vibrance & hue. Under these color settings I turned the red brightness down and the contrast a little down. I was then having a problem with white looking yellow tinged so I pulled up the blue brightness and contrast. Now black looks slightly blue. I tried messing with greens and tweaking other colors here and there but I'm getting no where fast.

Before I was using a 17 inch LCD monitor and the colors were fine.

I'm just wondering right now if anyone else who has a setup like mine or someone who is knowledgeable about Nvidia color settings maybe help me figure out what settings I could try.

Currently using

Brightness: 25
Contrast: 40
Gamma: 1.00
Brightness: 60
Contrast: 100
Gamma: 1.00
Brightness: 50

I have an ICC profile that I have to convert all of my images to for print and am a little confused on a couple of issues. One, when opening an image for edit do I first convert the color to my working space and then adjust the pixels (if need be) and then edit? Or does it matter in what order. Two, should I place a check mark in the color management policies so I know what adobe is doing with my image? And a little off topic, when editing can I do so while in soft proofing? Or is this just a final step for tweaking?

A:color settings in PS Cs2


I take all my in camera pictures in Adobe 1998 and have my settings as such in Photoshop. When I get a photo that is not... I convert it right away to 1998. Some will not agree but I have been to several Epson and Photoshop seminars and that is the general consensus.

I calibrate my monitor once a month using Optical and a spider and use Epson profiles and what I see on my monitor is exactly what prints...The two or three photographers that I print for are very happy

That was when I created this 5 day mess that I have not been able to get myself out of, and I am in great need of direction to put my screen colors back to normal.

I was looking at my display settings and it recognizes my current main display as HP s2031 wide screen LCD monitor. So that's good because it's right.

When I clicked the advanced settings in that same window and proceed then to color management tab followed by clicking on the color managment button in that same tab, it then shows the drop down list of devices.

The first one is my default monitor which is HP s2031 wide screen LCD monitor as I mentioned before.

There are two color profiles listed in the box under this monitor but the tick box doesn't say to use either one of them on this device.

those two profiles, assuming that I was to check that tick box become managable once ticked but I don't know two things.

First, do I leave the thing unticked as it is and second, If I tick the box that says to "use my settings for this device" then which profile do i use?

These are the two profiles listed should I choose to tick that box.

HP s2031 LCD mMonitor(default) --- HP s2031.icm


sRGB IEC61966-2.1 --- sRGB Color Space Profile.icm

Also, is there a reason that the box is unticked to "use my settings for this device" in the first place, I wonder?

Of course, in the middle of this posting, I clicked that "change system defaults" button in the advanced tab and it did something. I have no clue what, it was so fast.

Geez. I told you I was a noob at this.

A:Noob Question about default color profiles

It's likely that windows is already using the HP color profile. The RGB color profile is an image profile (of the color space assigned to the image), the standard profile for jpg images. For instance, I use the ProPhoto RGB color profile for all of my images until I save to jpg, at which time the sRGB IEC61966... profile is applied.

The HP profile is a device profile, created specifically for your monitor.

You can create your own color profiles for your devices using calibration software. You would check the 'Use my settings' option if you wished to use a profile you or someone else created, meaning really, any profile other than that windows assigned.

If you have no need for different color profiles (i.e., to ensure that your monitor or other device is displaying accurate colors, which you would need for image editing, etc.) and are happy with the appearance of your display, don't worry about it. If you're just curious and want to change the profile, you can always check the 'Use my settings..." box and choose any profile you like, switching it back if you don't like it. Try the HP profile first to see if you see any difference, although, as stated, it's likely already in use, esp. since Windows correctly identifies your monitor.

It may be wise, however, to create a System Restore point before making such changes, just in case things go south.

How do I clear the colors in PSP 7?

I don't know how to explain it clearly. It seems like the colors are set on yellow (I has varigated yellow on the lower boxes that say "style")

When I click on paintbrush, and on a color (up top where it says foreground and background) it changes in those boxes, but the paintbrush still shows yellow.

If I put on eraser or air brush it will change the colors and work.

I'm one of those people who finds something I want to do and then tries things till I find out how to do it, or just experiements with what's there.

I never learned what the little boxes that say style/texture, etc. do. They seem to have a way of being locked, and unlocked.

Also, sometimes when I bring up a picture I want to change something on, ONLY those colors in the picture come up to choose from on the color pallet and I don't know how to clear this to get all colors to choose from.

I've tried to find a way to reset or clear (back to default?) with this but can't.

These are the 2 boxes on the upper right hand corner (foreground and background) and pallet under it and boxes uder that that set texture, etc.

I know.... it would be easier and less frustrating in the long run to learn from basics and see just what and how everything works.

I actually have 2 different questions. Most important of them being that my compute does not detect CDs when they're inserted in the drive. I have Windows ME and when I use disk detector im not even given the option to detect from the CD drive. When I go under My Computer, the only drives visible are the floppy drive and the HD. If anyone can tell me how to get disks read it would be a great help.

Also, although I realize this may not be the correct thread for such a problem, My color scheme seems to be configured incorrectly. I believe it used to be 32 bit and was displaying colors fine, now its at only 16 colors and when I enter the display settings and try to drag down for more color options, It shows that 16 colors is the only option. Currently I have a Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) and the software version is 4.0. If anyone can help me to get all of my colors back it would be most appreciated.

 My laptop's color settings are completely normal when connected to a monitor (Display 2) but when my monitor (Display 2) is disconnected from it the color settings or colors displaying on my laptop is wrong or way off.

I have an amd-k6 processor with some sort of integrated video card and I have tried everything in my power to get true color out of it, and the best I can do is get 256. When windows choose the "best possible driver" I can't get better than 16 colors. This is something that is really getting me stuck. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I have a 4 year degree in computer science. Someone save me please!!!

I did a windows update and rebooted my computer. When it came back on it was all messed up. The icons on the desktop were huge and the color was messed up. I went into the control panel to display and I am unable to change the color from low 4 bit to anything else and I am unable to change the screen resolution. How do I fix this?
Thanks, Debbie

I'm using the latest driver from nvidia.

Hi there,

What have you tried using to check, clean, or tweaks in your system?

Was this card or the system itself recently upgraded/replaced?

Any other software recently installed or uninstalled?
- Are you running it oc'd [over clocked]? -
What version of DirectX are you running?

All system system and security updates ?

Tried doing a basic system cleaning/checking ?


Any other errors you have noticed or been having ?

Any other notes ?

A:Problem WIth Color Settings

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and my system config is as mentioned in my signature. The problem is that the color of my pictures look different when opened with Photoshop CS5 and with Windows Photo Viewer. Colors with PS CS5 & Irfanview are the same and Bridge & Win Photo Viewer are the same. The colors in Photoshop are a bit reddish when compared with Bridge.

As for my color settings in PS, I have set it to Adobe RGB(1998) profile and did the same for my monitor. Then why is there a difference. Do I need to change any other settings?

Please help.

Thank you.
