That's a color profile issue. Instead of going with the generic driver, which disables color management entirely, you could address that by adjusting the profile in Display Settings. If you don't want to manually calibrate the display (which requires renting/borrowing a colorimeter to do correctly) you should be able to use either the ICM supplied by Dell or -- if that was actually the one with the problem -- a manually-created one like Fighterpilot mentions. Or, if you're not doing any color-sensitive work, just go with sRGB.Logdan wrote:Probably the only issue I've had with it is at first, whenever I would open say .jpg files with the built-in Windows Photo Viewer, the actual window that would show the image would have a yellow-greenish tint over the entire picture. I was hooked up through DisplayPort, so I tried DVI and VGA, the problem was still there. I was able to fix this by entirely uninstalling the monitor's driver provided by both Dell and Microsoft and reverting to the standard "Generic Pnp Monitor". I've contacted Dell about this, so I hope they release a driver update. I should say the Generic driver seems to work fine.

Right-click on a blank area of your desktop and check out the monitor resolution / properties. There should be an option for switching between landscape and portrait modes and/or rotating 90/180/270 degrees, depending on your video driver and OS version.
