I have a new X34 monitor and, while it's working well, I have some questions about settings on start up:
1. Whenever I reboot or start the PC, the HP Display Center automatically resets my monitor to Full/Native setting, and the brightness is way too bright. I have to manually reset the monitor to neutral, which is the setting I like. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to get it to stop?
2. Whenever I cold boot my PC, the speaker settings on the laptop (Alienware m15 R3) automatically set sound to HP X34 (NVIDIA High Definition Audio), and I have to manually set the sound source. My monitor doesn't even have speakers, so I'm wondering why Windows 11 would automatically set the sound to a non-existent source. Does anyone know why this might be happening and whether it has something to do with the monitor?
Any help anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem with my x34 Monitor at Work.
I've set the color settings to "Neutral" as well. Whenever I power of the Monitor from the standby button on the back of the monitor and turn it back on, it has lost its color setting and is back to "Gaming".
I think its a bug in the monitors "menu software". 😞

Thank you. I appreciate the feedback. It seems that - as you say - the software doesn't maintain prior settings if you turn off or reboot the PC. In my case, it reverts to Full/Native, though I prefer to have it set to Neutral. This is definitely something that HP needs to investigate and fix.

I have the same issue.
Every time i start my PC, my color settings are on "Gaming" preset.
I change it to Native and it keeps going back to Gaming.
It is not only happening when i reboot, also when i open a browser or a game it is switching to Gaming color settings.
Please fix this.

I have had contact with the customer service, they helped me through a series of steps to help solve the problem. These were rather technical, but clearly explained and doable if you have some basis PC knowledge. I also completely reinstalled all my graphics card driver. It seems that the problem has been solved eversince. I contacted HP via Whatsapp, worked pretty well. Maybe fully removing any graphics drivers and reinstalling them is worth the try before going through the technical steps. I do not know which one of them eventually solved the problem.
LOL, while i was typing this comments all setting jumped back to gaming etc...... While this happened, the HP Omen app gave a pop-up messege and somehow reinstalled itself or something. Maybe this interferes with the settings as well.
