    Grey Screen after switching to display port.


    Hello there,

    I recently switched from HDMI to DisplayPort as my monitor can handle 144hz, and just ran a test to see whether my HDMI cable still made the display look greyish and it doesn't have that much grey in it compared to the DisplayPort. The DisplayPort is more greyish and I only came to notice it when I switched the cables. What's happened here?

    Fixed this with a little search, seems that I had to go into the NVidia Control Panel and then "Change resolution". On that screen, I changed the "Output dynamic range" setting from 'Limited' to 'Full'.
