avi video color problem

Q: avi video color problem

I recently installed a Geforce 5700 LE into my pc and downloaded the latest drivers to it. But now there's a color problem going on with it. Although the avi video files play fine, for some reason, the hue is completely off. The same thing occurs for movie clips in games that may be avi. Can this be fixed?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I just set up a new machine, and windows is detecting 2 video cards.

Radeon 9800 Pro
Radeon 9800 Pro - Secondary
I only have one card installed.
Also, it's detecting 2 monitors, when I only have 1 installed.

Is this normal? There's not 2 set in the ATI control panel.

Also, my desktop, I have it set to a black backgound. It isnt 'black' but more of a dark, green tinted grey, until I open a window, like say display properties. When I do this, the color returns to normal. It's annoying to say the least. I've tried reinstalling both vid card drivers and monitor drivers. the monitor driver fixed it, until I watched a dvd movie on it, now it does the same thing.

My system is:
p4 3.0 ghz
1 Gig Corsair XMS Twin 3200 ram
Sapphire ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 mb video
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe Mobo
SB Audigy 2 Platinum EX Sound
2 WD 120 7,200 RPM hard drives
1 WD 36 gig Raptor SATA boot drive
Latest Asus Bios

A:Detecting 2 video cards? (and color problem)

Go into device manager and uninstall both monitors and both video cards. Reboot and load the drivers when prompted, and it should settle down and only have one of each. :)

I have been experiencing distorted color while trying to watch certain videos online. For example if I want to watch a video on ESPN.com the thumb nail and video advertisements are in color, but the video content from this and other sites plays in black and white or only in very dull colors. Even more confusing is the fact that this only occurs while my laptop is connected to the AC adapter. If the computer is unplugged the color returns to normal then goes back to black and white when the charger is reconnected.

I have tried updating all my drivers but it hasn't had any effect.

A:problem displaying websites color backgrounds and color scrollbars

Ok. First, what are your computer specs?
For example, mine is a

Dell Inspiron 530
WinXP Home SP2
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 ghz
320 Gig HD
1022 gig RAM
512 Nvidia Geforce 8300 GT video card

It helps to know what is being worked with. If not sure, you can go to "start", then to "Run" and type in "dxdiag" (without the quotations marks) This is your "DirectX Diagnostic Too" Copy the specs you see in "System" (CPU info) and in "Display" (Video/Graphics Card)

Secondly, I know your husband was trying to help but I hope he tells you next time what he intends doing. My own husband is older (60s) and is a bit leery of this "newfangled computer technology" He prefers leaving the computer work/"geekstuff" to me for our family business.

Hello,

I'm updating a friend's computer. It already came with Windows 8.1. It's an Asus Transformer T100.

I have this strange problem. Normally, the screen has the correct color and brightness. However, whenever I'm using Windows Mail (Windows 8 app), the screen will change to this yellowish/grayish hue or tint. I switch to another app or a desktop program and the screen returns to normal. Only with this app do I have this problem!

I went to color profiles and management to see if it was a setting. I'm not very familiar with color profiles so I didn't do anything. I did run the screen calibration utility. No fix.

I turned off adaptive brightness.

It's just Windows 8 Mail that has the problem!

A:Windows 8 Mail changes screen color.color profile problem?

I found out what's the problem is.

Asus has a utility called Asus Reading Mode or something like that. You can add apps to that list and any apps on that list will cause the screen to change color to make it more readable I suppose. You can disable the feature by flipping the toggle switch in the app. Then all the apps will maintain the correct screen color.

I recently purchased a Dell XPS 15 (6845slv).  Overall I have very happy with it...but have been getting frustrated with color management issues and was hoping to get some advice.
Intermittently, the display had been changing the color scheme (to a suboptimal scheme).  It lasted for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes and then returned to the original (and more normal appearing) color settings.  It did not seem to happen while running any particular applications.  All drivers are up-to-date.
I turned off the dell application "True Color" which I thought may have been making automatic adjustments to the color scheme and since turning it off the issue hasn't happened again.  However now I'm concerned that by inactivating that software, that I may not be maximizing the potential of the high quality HD display.  And now--though maybe it's in my head--the colors seem to be a little flatter since turning off True Color.
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting the most out of the display? Has anyone had similar issues with True Color?  Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

A:Dell XPS 15 Color Management Problem with "True Color"

I have a Dell XPS 15 9530 and I have the same problem, it looks like an automatic color adapting thing, when I put my hand over the webcam to block, after 5-10 seconds the screen turns into blueish colors, when I remove my hand it comes back warmer (very worm), then it settles back to a kind-of standard colors.
I couldn't find the place to disable this feature, and while I use my laptop mostly for video editing/color correction purposes this feature caused me to replace my 2400$ laptop with a 1000$ HP laptop without this smart-feature!
I wish I can find a way to fix this, but as I can see it has been over a month and no one has helped you too.

I was advised to start my own thread on this topic, and hopefully by the time ViLL logs in again we will have a resolution for it, so here it goes.

This is MY version.

Problem: When trying to play any sort of video file (mpeg, avi, etc..) no matter what player I use, EVEN if it's streaming from a website such as IGN.com, it is discolored. It is bright white with a pink hue, and shadows seem to turn metallic purple. I downloaded new videos to make sure it was something to do with the playback, and even new videos are effected. The only change that I think is significant between the last time video playback worked, and now, is that I got the New Nvidia drivers. I uninstalled those and installed a previous version that I know worked just fine, and that didn't fix the problem. So I am unsure as to what to try next. I dislike the idea of formatting for the 3rd time in a week. If I remember anything else important I'll add it. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hello everyone ^_^,

So, since I installed Windows 8.1 , there has been this very strange problem with Windows Media Player where it displays every video which is highly saturated or we can say that it appears very odd. Whereas in the case of VLC, it displays the video appropriately. I have attached the screenshots below. I checked every setting of the Windows Media Player and it is at it's default setting. Please help me on how to solve this problem ^_^.

A:Different Color on same video in different players

Could be codecs, VLC has it's own and WMP uses windows codecs .
Don't know about those Intel drivers but most other have setting for video to use Widows default settings or application settings. With AMD drivers it can make quite a difference.

A:Video output displays no red color???

On the not recognizing video cards issue,

Go in the BIOS & make sure the video is set to P{CI-E or Peg/IGA or whatever the onboard is listed at.

If you are going to use a add-in video card it has to be set to be recogniozed in the BIOS.

On the color issue, Go to the manufacturers website & download the newest video driver & install it.
That may help.

I had that problem but I'm not sure this applies to you

My video card when set to 256 colors puts out too high of a sync rate for my monitor by default, yet at 64k and 16.8mil it runs at the correct refresh rate and I have to manually set the refresh rate to 60hz to get the screen to be brighter when I set it to 256 colors.

Check your refresh rate and try lowering it when you set to 256colors and see if that helps

Good Luck

When I look at this website on a friend's computer, the website looks fine - all the colors and pictures display as expected. But on my computer/monitor (Windows XP, Dell Dimension, Dell crt monitor), when I look at the website, the pictures do not show and some of the text colors are not what they shoud be (ex: black instead of purple). In MIcrosoft Word, when trying to set the page background color, the color template comes up fine and show different colors to choose from, but when I pick a color, the page background color stays white.

I'm not sure if this is a monitor driver issue or an issue with my video adapter or something else. When I check the monitor type in windows display properties, it shows default monitor as the monitor type. The color quality setting is at Highest(32 bit). Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Greetings Bc,
I am having an issue, with the Slimjet x64 browser, while running it on Ubuntu 14.04. There is a real color issue, while viewing random images, and at times, even on the google home page. I have attempted to adjust various, random options in the settings menu, but still no luck. I have even tried to switch off hardware acceleration, with hopes of solving this issue. The only two adons, that I have installed, are new tab override, and adblock plus. Even after disabling these adons, and restarting the browser, I am still experiencing the color issues. I have tried to restore the browser to the default settings, and still no luck. While viewing images, it is kind of tricky, because it does not happen all of the time. Even if I don't restart the browser, or install any updates, I could come back to the same image, a few moments later, and it will look how it is intended to look. The way the images come across is similar to turning the contrast, and gamma settings all the way down, on your television set. Yellows turn out purple, blues turn out green, all while being plastered on a black background.

Hi,

So, when I am using the Windows lock screen, especially when I am not currently signed in, Windows tends to set my lock screen accent color to purple, much like my wife's account on the computer. She has chosen a purple accent color for her account, which is fine, except that mine is red. Now, this is not really a huge issue, as everything is normal once I have logged in, but the fact that everyone else's account is normal and it isn't assigning that color to any other accounts is extremely annoying. I've just been dealing with it for the past few months and I'm just tired of it.

Does anyone have any possible solutions to this? Or maybe an explanation as to why this would be happening? Thanks.

I was thinking that the solution to this may be along the lines of how the Aero-glass used to work on Win7, or how the "automatic color picker" works now on Win8, where it changes the taskbar color based on the average color represented in your wallpaper.

Any suggestions as to where I might find code to get me started, or if any of you might be willing to help me do this? While this obviously isn't a task of utmost importance, I'm pretty sure we all love making things look the way we want them to.

Thanks in advance,

Sean

I have an HP business inkjet 2300 & Windows XP desk top. My printer is only prining in black or this funky dark pink and light pink mode. (Grey Scale?) How do I remedy this. I know the ink is full because I just replaced all the colors thinking I was running out of the primary colors bet that didn't fix it. Any Ideas? Thanks!!!
 

A:color printer not printing in full spectrum color

The pink is usually a sign that the ink is about to run out. Check the printer settings in the Windows control panel for the printing mode. From there, you should be able to do some diagnostics. Try a print head alignment and print head cleaning, just try all of the different options and then try and re-print. If not, you could have some dud inks? Very unlikely, but if you bought them cheaply from a not so good brand or had them re-filled then it could be an issue.

One surprise in just upgrading from Win 8.1 to 10 is black taskbar and the seeming limit on adjusting colors. It's been a long time since I had to play with it, but with Win 8.1 and back I've had a transparent, semi-clear taskbar, with custom color settings (intensity, hue, saturation and brightness) that let the grey/blue of the bottom of the photo I used for the desktop come through. Is that kind of adjustment completely gone with Win 10? All the colors in Settings seem highly saturated. I came across a website that showed a lot more changes along the lines I am looking for, but its Win 10 settings layout doesn't seem current (Change the Color of Taskbar and Window Border in Windows 10). Thanks,

How can I change background color of the document I am working on but not have that color print when I print the document?
 

A:wordperfect how to change screen color but not print color

Try going to File, Print and see if there is a setting there, it would be something like do not print background.
I don't use word perfect so I am going by what I have seen in other programs.

In Word I think it is listed under Tools, Options printing.

You will have to check the settings for background.

ALso try background in the help in the program or background printing under help.

Hey all,

I have a question regarding the font/background colors on the Windows 7 log screen. I just accepted a position with a school and a few computers have customized log screen font colors/backgrounds. The Windows 7 classic background is there, but the username and password boxes have been changed. For example, one computer has green text that sits on a black background for both username and password. Another has a different combination of colors. I've searched related topics but am having trouble finding a good, clear cut solution. I basically just want to reset the log screen back to the default white background with black text for each box.

Anyone advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Ryan

i have hp 630 laptop . Laptop shows only red green color and display red green line also on screen . How to resolve this problem.  Please help me . 

A:screen color not show only red green color display

Hi.Welcome to the forumKumarTAM.Green Screen Display Quality IssuesThe problem you have may be the graphics card or the screen.Try connecting an external monitor or a TV to the laptop and check if it happens to you too or not. If this happens it also means that it is from the graphics card, so you will have to update it to its latest available version.If on the other hand it works well on the TV or external monitor it means that it is the laptop screen which should be replaced.Press the icon""to say thanks, Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem.

I was just trying to throw this out there.

Short story.

Windows Vista 64 bit

Apparently my screen went black. Someone forced a shut down and didn't mess with the connection first to fix it.

Upon restarting they said some weird beep noise happened. Now my computer doesn't seem to display the color blue. I switch the connection to my TV and that did nothing. So it's not my screen.

Under the properties of my video card it tells me everything is cool. So I don't know whats wrong. Or if it can be fixed.

Thanks for any info.

A:A color problem

Hello omygoodness and welcome to TSF,

Could you give us the info on your computer.

Is it a laptop or a desktop?
What is the brand and model?

Does the computer, currently, power on and show a picture on the monitor?
Was there a pattern to the beeping noises? What was that pattern?

OK, first things first. I use a MacBook with Boot Camp. It's four years old and I still use Windows XP. 
 
I installed Windows probably in early 2011, then again in 2012 or 2013 when it wouldn't boot for some reason, and then again a few weeks ago. See, for that one, I started with the dreaded "16 color low resolution" problem, and immediately took steps to fix it, mostly trying to remove all NVIDIA components (GeForce 320M, that's the one for the computer) and attempting to reinstall it through Boot Camp. Well, what I ended up doing was completely wiping out the Display Adaptors box from Device Manager, and I had a lovely high-res color screen again that was absolutely useless because it had no graphics card. So I reinstalled the system after my options seemed to be exhausted, one day later everything was back up again and got to enjoy the games I'd been missing. Guess what? Less than 2 weeks after my initial triumph, I got back in the same boat. This time however, I took note of what I had and what I didn't, specifically that Device Manager DOES show Display Adaptors, the graphics card, but the NVIDIA control panel was screwed (and remained that way no matter what I did). I really don't want to reinstall the system again, I really want to play my Steam games, and so forth. So, what do I do now? Any advice? Would Safe Mode fix anything?

A:16 Color Problem...again

Have you updated Boot Camp itself? This is has been reported to fix some of these type of issues.

We need to ensure that the MacBook end of the deal is right before proceeding with any XP fixes.
