Subject: filmscanners: Problems with my monitor and graphics card
| Trials of a new OS and related defective hardware.
| I've been fighting to try and get my monitors to match for the past week.
| We'll my problem finally met it's match.... I received the spyder and
| Optical software today and tried to calibrate my new Win2K 21inch
| Trinitron. It seems that I was right all along. The monitor is defective.
| It saw the grey logo as purple and the tech support at ColorVision told me
| to send the monitor back. It seems that it wasn't supposed to have any
| color, only shades of gray.
| In addition I also received a 19 inch Trinitron that I had ordered as my
| second monitor (on the Matrox G450 card) and the colors, out of the box,
| blew away both 21 inch monitors. They are now going back for replacements.
| To complicate things even more, as soon as I hooked up the 19 inch along
| side the 21 inch, the 21 inch (number 1 monitor) went to 16 color (might
| have been 256 color), even though it said 32 bit color in the properties
| box. I spent an hour on the phone with Matrox support and they are sending
| me a new G450 card tomorrow.
| All in all, I now have a great looking 19 inch single monitor on my new
| Win2K dual monitor system. Maybe I can finally get some work done today.
