W530 Color Calibration Issue, colors out of whack.

2017-07-06, 15:28 PM

I have searched the forum already and couldn't find the correct fit for my issue.  So far I have a W530 wide screen that has been having odd color issues.  When initily booted up the color is fine, how ever after about ten minutes in the colors snap and go wierd.  (see photo) I have already checked the drivers and did a recalibration of the montor.  After a restart the cycle simply repeats.

Does This persist if you preform a clean boot after the 10 minutes? https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html

Sounds like some software is causing a severe palette shift.

You can also force a ICC to default to try to mitigate it. https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/5823-display-color-calibration.html

I have tried both of these a clean boot fixes it only for a short time and a calabration just doesn't do any thing.  Time to uninstall drivers this time.  Maybe they are causing it.   Currupt drivers are fun.
