Hello @Magnus_Gronas

I havent heard of any issues with the color on those monitors before.


The only thing I can think of are the simple fixes like clean reinstalling the drivers or trying another cable.

Make sure the settings on the monitor are on default and also try settings Windows color profile to sRGB.

Otherwise, you may have to contact HP Support directly and talk to them.

Perhaps you just got a lemon out of the pick.
