I have a Dell Optiplex GX280. It came with an on-board, Intel video card. I disabled Intel video card, and added a Nvidia GEFORCE FX 5200 in one of the slots. I use windows XP Pro.
I downloaded the latest Nvidia drivers (installed themand then thinking I might have a corrupted download, I un-installed these drivers, re-downloaded them, and then installed them again.
I tested several monitors, and know the monitor is irrelevant to the problem. (The old monitor works fine with the on-board Intel drivers; and the other monitors I tested work fine with different computers. Therefore, the monitor is NOT the problem.
The PROBLEM is that my desktop, programs and the Internet all show a a yellow tint (instead of white). In using the desktop control panel Nvidia supplies, I noticed I can adjust red and green, but canno0t change blue. Also , in selecting a color desktop in Windows XP, I cannot get a true, blue color from the regular suggested colors, and even in advanced, I cannot make a regular blue.
Using the Nvidia supplied software, I have tweaked brightness, contrast, and color adjustments. I even tried the warm/cold adjustments on the monitor.
Sometimes, playing with the adjustments I can minimize the yellow tint and glarebut a few hors later, the strong tint returns.
I tried the Nvidia GEFORCE FX 5200 on a different computer, and it works fine.
Using Google, I have seen references to upgrading bios, but I saw no new bios on dell's support. My computer's bios are dated 2006.
I believe that I need to find a way to make this video card work in this computer, but cannot seem to find the problem. Maybe I do need to flash or upgrade bios, but if so, I will need some guidance.
