Hi. I recently set-up a new dual monitor system using a Phillips 21.5" monitor and a Panasonic Viera 32" inch TV. I connected the TV using an HDMI cable, and the monitor using a VGA cable. For some reason the colours on the TV are dark and over saturated. I don't know what to do to fix this. I've tried adjusting the colours using the catalyst control center; as I am using a Radeon HD 7850, but I couldn't get the colours to work. I've heard about colour spaces, but I couldn't find any settings like that. If anyone has any ideas to fix this over saturation and dark colours problem please help.

You'll need to adjust the colors in the actual displays.

In order to do this correctly you'll need software and a meter.

Well I"m quite partial to CalMAN, but that's because I write quite a bit of the software.

There are a lot of different packages and different meters out there.

I would probably only look at X-Rite Hardware in the <$1000 price range.

The current perfomance stair step would be
i1 Display 2 -> colormunki smile (no 3rd party software support) -> C3 (custom SpectraCal smile)-> i1 Display Pro -> C6 (custom SpectraCal i1 Display Pro)

An i1 Display Pro and an i1 Display 2 both work with quite a few different software packages, including free ones. The free softwares have quite a bit of a learning curve, but hey they are free. Software like CalMAN will hold your hand through the process and can even have specific Workflows for matching multiple monitors (depending on your license level). CalMAN was designed to calibrate both Home Theater displays as well as PCs. Feel free to download a trial version if you want to play with it.

I'm still waiting for the information on the touch-pad type.
I also need instructions on removing the rear cover from the Ultrabook.
There appears to be some trick to it.
Actually, I would look at the basICColor DISCUS as well. A very good probe at that price point.

There are a lot of software options out there as well - and some of the free ones are very good, with this forum supplying a lot of support.
If you want professional level you could look at LightSpace CMS too - but it is a league above other systems, and really aimed at high-end professionals.
