Problem with GeForce4 Mx 440
 
I noticed that all my video's seemed very dark, hardly watchable in some cases.
This was happening with every player so I figured it was the vid card. So d/l the new driver, I tried to change the Video color on the video overlay but when I change it and click apply it just goes to the same settings.

anyone have any clue why?

If you need more info let me know...

Is your monitor's brightness setting correctly configured? Also, what codecs are you using to watch these videos? Does the darkness only occur on some videos, or all of them? Which player are you using (e.g. WMP, MPC, BSPlayer, etc.)?

As of now, I'm going to lean towards a conjecture of the problem being on the hardware side, if there's a problem at all.

Actually, I'd sooner blame the monitor than the vcard. If it is an old monitor, then the brightness might be "failing" so to speak. I've had it happen several times before on some of my older machines. Try cranking up the brightness and contrast on your monitor. If it doesn't help, or it is cranked, then try a different vcard. If THAT doesn't help, I'd try another monitor. I highly doubt it is your vcard though. I've NEVER had ANY problems with my MX 440 (other than the fan periodically being atrociously noisy.)

I would as well.

I used to have an old Samsung which was a very dark monitor. Noticed this while watching films and playing Doom 3. Got a new CTX monitor which is picture perfect now.

Do you install the last ForceWare(driver)?

If yes,remove it

and install the older driver (ex:Version: 5*.**)

if no

maybe the monitor's problem.
