Re: filmscanners: Still Having Trouble with Win2K



Hi Colin,

Thanks for the suggestions. But both displays are set at Windows default.

Here's a kicker. I've switch 21 inch monitors and the 21 from my Win98SE 
(Dell D1620HT) system looks fine on the new Win2k system. I've spoken to 
Dell tech support, although they couldn't look at the web page, and they 
told me that I should call my sales person and tell them I need a different 
monitor.

I've also switched graphics cards back to the original nVidia card that 
came with the Win2K system and the P series monitors still looked bad

What I'm seeing is that the Dell P series Trinitron monitors are not 
showing full 32 bit color. I'm now seeing the same bad color gradations on 
my Win98SE system with my new 19 inch P991 Dell Trinitron also. So maybe 
both new Dell monitors are going back this week. The 21 inch that showed 
the bad gradations is a P1110.

Summery:
Dell's D1620HT Trinitron looks good on either computer.
Dell's P1110 Trinitron looks bad on either computer, showing a colder 
looking gray and what appears to be a not full 32 bit color.
Dell's P991 Trinitron looks bad on either computer, showing a colder 
looking gray and what appears to be a not full 32 bit color.
