    Calibrating my monitor


    Whats the best way to calibrate my monitor?

    I have been using windows own calibration tool, but it resets everytime i play a game.

    Solved by using nvidias control panel instead.

    I used the built-in display calibration program in Windows 10.
    This article explains the process: https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/c...tor-windows-10
    First, I set the brightness and contrast on my monitor with it's built-in adjustments so that it looked fairly good to my eyes. Then, I opened Nvidia control panel beside the window for for the calibration program and fine-tuned each setting in Nvidia control panel until the test images looked like the Windows calibrator said they should look in the instructions before each step.

    If it's a 1920x1080, then take a look at my post here: Calibrate Monitor in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials

    Read the PDF, from AVSForums thoroughly through first(link is posted.

    An alternative set of calibration images to calibrate with: LCD monitor test images



    I generally use both, and as you will never get it exact.
    Specially if your monitor doesn't have 100% sRGB color gamut like my 4K BenQ does(my HP 27vx 1080p only has 72%), and you will always have to find the, best for you, acceptable compromise.

    Being annoyed, I finally broke down and grabbed a monitor calibration device by x-rite and now I'm very happy!

    Good for you!

    Just make sure you keep the x-rite calibrated too...

    Oh I had no idea but I guess that makes sense. The x-rite is after all another device so its now flawless - even though I'm about to go hug the damn thing bc I like it so much LOL. I got the i1 Display Pro because it was on sale and not much more than the cheapest model.

    A friend calibrated my LG HDTV(LG's are the only ones that don't hide the advanced settings like 2 point & 10 point calibration) using his Datacolor Spyder. But he need to send it in to be recalibrated after a couple of years.

    I cant use windows own calibration tool because it resets everytime i play a game. I was pretty satisfied with the calibration that i did with windows though.

    @Cliff S thanks, will try it out.

    I only used the Windows tool to view the test images. I tweaked the actual settings in Nvidia Control Panel under Display>Adjust desktop color settings. Make sure to click "Use NVIDIA settings" and adjust the Brightness, Contrast, and Gamma there instead of using the sliders in the Windows calibration tool. Forza 6 doesn't override my settings since I did it this way. Otherwise, it defaults to "Other applications control color settings" which is probably why it is reverting whenever you're opening a game.
