Hi all - I've got this weird issue where my monitor will switch modes when displaying full screen 1080p movie content or full screen games. By switch modes I mean the resolution stays the same (1920x1080), but the colours somehow seem different, really saturated. Like if I load Starcraft and Ctrl-esc back into windows the colours will be way off.  After exiting the game, everything goes back to normal. Specs below:


Windows7 Pro, Quadro K2200 video card, Sony KDL-32W700C TV connected via Displayport. 


Its not a big deal as I don't watch full screen movies, I'm just curious to know what Starcraft would look like if it didn't switch modes lol.

In the nvidia control panel you can change the video colour settings, That can be set to override the apps own settings, which may be the problem.

I had the same issue with windows 7 a game i was playing before and when you Alt+Tab the desktop would be really bright. But when you exited the game it was back to normal.


I am now on windows 10 and don't have that problem. Not sure if it was a windows thing or that I got a new Graphics card.


I did find playing in windowed mode didn't cause that issue perhaps try that?

thanks that fixed it - I went to nVidia control panel > Adjust desktop color settings > 3. Apply the following enhancements > Content type reported to display: Desktop programs.  It was set to Auto select before.
