As the subject clearly states, this is my first world problem: I have a display issue with my monitors.

On my primary monitor, I have a the image represented in the tones, contrast, and brightness I want. On my second screen (extended display) I have the same image, but it's tones are all off. I cannot get the whites to a pure white no matter what brightness or RGB adjustments I make. Ultimately, it looks as if it is sunfaded.

I have made the settings on the monitor and in Windows display settings identical = fail.

I have manipulated the color, contrast, and brightness in the monitors' settings = fail.

I had the same issue with my previous GPU (Radeon HD 7970), and now it continues with GTX 770.

On both cards I tried various methods of connection (i.e. HDMI & DVI-D and Dual DVI-D) = fail.

My monitors are identical make/models. I even have the same make/model at work so I (with permission from my boss) brought one home and swapped them out = fail.

I cannot find squat online but tips to go into the advanced display settings (as aforementioned... tried that already). I have also been trying to fix this on and off for nearly a year... granted, after a week or so trying I gave up... then started again about a month ago when I picked up the new GPU for my recent build.

Today I should be receiving my second GTX 770 to establish SLI. I really want this problem resolved... so if anyone has any suggestions whatsoever... they would be greatly appreciated.

At this point, I can even take BS suggestions... as I could certainly use a good laugh a midst all of this pent up frustration.

Wierd, I can not say I have had that issue then again I am using a lappy screen and a TV screen. But you could try Displayfusion. See if that will be able to sort that.

Right Click desktop

Select Nvidia Control Panel

Goto Display > Check Desktop Colour Settings

Select the monitor you wish to change, select use Nvidia Settings, change desired brightness etc.

Click Apply

Should be fine for each restart.

Guess I should have mentioned that I tried modifying via the NVidia Control Panel as well = fail.

For the cabling, I know you said you tried HDMI & DVI-D and Dual DVI-D

But when you did the swap arounds did you try all combinations of this including trying each DVI-D cable on alternate monitors?

Just want to be sure it's not a faulty cable, since you have tried different monitors and graphics cards.

Also, have you swapped primary and secondary displays? Does it switch which one is not displaying correctly?

Yeah, I have tried varied cables as well. My card has the following slots: Display Port, HDMI, DVI-D, and DVI-I.

I have tried the following combos, HDMI/DVI-D, HDMI/Display Port, Dispaly Port/DVI-D, and DVI-D/DVI-D (both cables are DVI-D). I have swapped out the cables, and no matter what, my second display is always off.

Perhaps the 2nd monitor is goosed? As in not working as intended.
