On Screen Display: Color Settings

2008-09-16, 1:14 AM

Hello all,

 

I had previously posted a similar thread asking for help, but I guess it wasn't phrased properly because nobody replied.

 

My question is: Where are settings that changes On Screen Display color located?

 

Thanks for your help!

Eric

Which GPU do you use, and more importantly which T series Laptop do you have, the only way to change your color settings is to use aftermarket software provided by your respective GPU maker.

If you are talking about changin the color of the onscreen display for Volume control etc.  Start>Control Panel>ThinkPad Configuration  Select Display > OnScreen Display.  You can change colors there

HI,

Have you tried right clicking on the middle of the display and checking out what's available there? Did I miss what OS you are running? I always mention not to do too many changes at once because if we screw up we wouldn't know what we did.

Also did you add another adapter or something? Was it working before?

@ willy0508

 

I don't have ThinkPad Configuration in my control panel. Any other ideas?

 

@T23FUN

 

I am running XP Professional SP3 on a T61. Do you mean right-click on the desktop? There's nothing that indicates changing display settings except "Graphics Properties" and "Properties".

 

And you're right. I previously had changed the display color but I forgot where it was, and now I can't find it again.

Yes, right click on the desktop select properties. Click on the Seetings tab and advanced. Be careful what you change and maybe even write down what you change so you remember how to undo what you did.

Another way to get back is to undo  what you changed by going to >all programs>accessories>system tools>restore.

There you restore to a point before you made the change. I would definitely try to correct the settings by right clicking on the desktop before that.
