    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.

    That is the smartest thing I have ever heard anyone say about anything.

    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.
    Oh and Don't forget some tuts on ASM and defeating DMA

    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.
