I just installed Windows 7 Pro on an HP Pavillion with an HP w2007 20" monitor. I had no color issues initially and everything worked fine. The first time I ran Windows Update, it included an optional update called "HP- Display - HP w2007 Wide LCD Monitor". That update "failed" to install and when I rebooted, my screen had a very "neon" look to it - my desktop background, a picture of a tree with a bunch of red leaves, was very washed out and most of the leaves were now bright red with no details visible. This is evident everywhere, not just my desktop background (another example...the little green circles next to contact names in Gmail chat are very bright green, more so than usual). Everything is too bright. I have tried the following fixes: -Reinstalling the HP display update manually (it worked this time) and rebooting - didn't work. -Resetting my monitor to the factory defaults - didn't work. -Downloading and installing the latest HP driver for this monitor - didn't work. -Going through: "Control panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display -> Calibrate Color" and going through a color calibration wizard (believe that's new to Windows 7?). Also didn't work. I have dual-boot to Ubuntu set up on this machine and I believe the colors in Linux are still fine, so I think it's a problem with Windows and not the monitor. Since it was working fine before, I would rather try to get it back to whatever was working, rather than manually tuning the brightness/contrast of my monitor. Any ideas?
