Question dual monitor wierdness??

I am running dual Acer AL2223WD 22" monitors on DVI using an 8600 gts 256MB video card, what I am seeing is a difference in the color between the 2 monitors even though the settings are the same, anyone have any ideas why this is and how to fix it??

Run the nvidia monitor tool. It will let you set them so they look the same.

I had the same with 2 17" Mitsubishi LCDs. Basically what i concluded was because they were made at different times one was a newer version an had slightly better colour...

it might just need to be tuned with the monitor settings or with actual tuning software like Huey or the Color Spider
