    color tuning an AOC monitor

    so..I'm trying to tune a new AOC monitor, model E2250Swdn, as when plugged into my laptop I noticed that my taskbar on the new monitor appears to have less blue to it than is presented in the attached image below. looking at the screenshot here that I took on my laptop's screen of my taskbar, could someone perhaps tell me what adjustments I need to make to the monitor? is it color correction, gamma or brightness?

    Not sure exactly what you mean, but if the colors appear mute (closing to gray), S (saturation) is the control you are after. More saturation makes the colors more vivid, less saturation makes them less vivid (going to gray at the extreme). Also you could try fixing that from the Intel or nVidia or Catalyst Control Panel (depending on hardware). Go at the monitor color settings and adjust saturation. I don't know for other cards, but in nVidia's Control Panel there is also a "Digital Vibrance" setting. More makes colors vivid, less makes colors mute. I had the opposite problem than you. With default settings (Digital Vibrance 50%) I got oversaturated and unnatural looking colors. If I set Digital Vibrance to 40% I get a perfect image with natural colors.

    Note: If you cannot see the graphics control panel, you probably have Microsoft drivers installed. Go to Intel, nVidia or AMD (according to your hardware), download and install latest drivers (OEM). Then you should see the Control Panel by right-clicking on the desktop.
