@choni1, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Use the on-screen display (OSD) menu to adjust the monitor screen image based on your preferences. You can access and make adjustments in the OSD menu using the buttons on the bottom side of the monitor's front bezel. To access the OSD menu and make adjustments, do the following:

1. If the monitor is not already on, press the power button to turn on the monitor.

2. To access the OSD menu, press the Menu button to open the OSD.

3. Use the three function buttons to navigate, select, and adjust the menu choices. The on-screen button labels vary depending on which menu or submenu is active.

 

Another option is to check from Windows: Right-click on Desktop - Display settings - Brightness and color - scroll the bar.

 

Hope this helps!

I have tried adjusting everything.. and still the color saturation is very intense.
I am told that monitors these days are that way. I guess I just have to get used to it.

I do graphic design and am finding it hard to do adjustments/color correction to photos, etc.

 

someone said possibly it could be the "gamma".... what are your thoughts on that?

thanks for your help!

You may want to perform a color calibration to get the screen into your preference:

 

Before you start, make sure your monitor has been on for at least half an hour, so it's warmed up properly, and clean your monitor.
 

1. Right-click on the desktop and select Display settings
 

2. Click "Advanced display settings" at the bottom of the settings window.
 

display settings advanced

3. Verify that your monitor is set to the recommended, native resolution. If it's not, set it to the recommended resolution at least for this calibration process.

4. Click "Color calibration" at the bottom of the advanced display settings window.
 

display settings color calibration

5. Click Next to start the colour calibration.

The wizard will walk you through adjusting your colour settings. You'll:

  • Set the display to the factory default colour settings, if your monitor allows you to do that
  • Adjust your display's gamma to match a sample image

  • Adjust the brightness and contrast

    calibration brightness

Adjust the colour balance

6. 
At the end of the wizard, click Finish to save your settings.

You'll then be able to calibrate ClearType for sharper text.

 

 

Keep me posted.
