Monitor seems washed out or white-ish?

Yeah, so I noticed while playing ESO that I'm using VGA. For most games I plug in the controller and play on my big TV through HDMI so I just never bothered I guess.

Anyway since I'm playing ESO on my PC lots I decided I needed to get a HDMI.. I swapped them around and man does it make a huge difference...

BUT..

I've noticed it looks super white or washed out or something. I go to nvidia control panel and mess with the Hue option... Then hit cancel and restore to being controller by other applications and the washed outness disappears...

I have to do this everytime I launch my PC apparently.

Anyone know how I can fix this? I don't really want to leave it set by Nvidia since I don't think I can ever get it right.

Could be different video levels (0-255 or 16-235). Try changing the digital color format under the color settings.

Let me guess, it's an LED. That "whiteness" ain't going anywhere.....

One thing that really helped me was to find a calibrated monitor profile and use that.

You can find your monitor there and download and use one of those and it'll help make the picture look a lot better.

I went to that site, I followed the steps for Vitsa..

Windows Vista

Place the saved ICC profile in: C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color\

Right click your desktop

Chose 'Personalize > display parameters > advanced parameters > color management tab

Check 'use my parameters for this peripheral'

Chose 'Add', select the saved ICC profile, and set it to default.

Click on the 'Advanced' tab in the peripheral profile, select the saved ICC profile, click 'OK'


The last step I dont understand as I am not sure what they mean by Peripheral profile. There is an advanced tab in the overall color management screen you are in but not sure where I would select the ICC profile. There is a spot in the advance tab where I can select it but there is no "Ok" button to click anywhere. There is just a close. When I close, not a thing changes visually.
