    Tweak Monitor Settings


    It doesn't make any sense to invest a bunch of money in an expensive monitor or an even more expensive GPU, if you don't tweak the monitors settings.

    • Set the monitor/TV & GPU to their default settings.
    • Unless your monitor/TV has the possibility to set two presets(like my LG 32"LD350 with 2 Expert settings one day-1 night) set the lighting in the room for when you use your PC the most.
    • Set your backlighting to where it's most comfortable.
    • Go to LCD monitor test imagesThe Logom LCD monitor test pages and read through first and make sure you understand everything, then follow the instructions.
    • You may have to flip/flop between tweaks because an adjustment here can change an adjustment there. for example contrast and brightness- after setting the Black level(Brightness) then going to White saturation(contrast) it can/will make the Black level brighter meaning you have to reset it again, which will, of course, change the contrast a bit and so on and so on. The idea doing it visually without a colormeter is to find the best compromise acceptable for you. The same goes for tweaking the sharpness.


    Some might say "Hey I have a Blu-ray movie that came with a tweak section" or like me "I have the HDTV Calibration Disk from AVS forums!", well that's just fine for your Blu-ray player or Home Cinema, but for online gaming or browsing you need to set your monitor for that. It's like with my TV I have slightly different settings for my Blu-ray(1080p) and television(1080i & 720i) because of the differences compression, and also to reduce artifacts. Another reason is that for any differences in types of connections and the difference between a PCs GPU and the integrated graphics of a player.


    After you have tweaked your monitor/TV you can then tweak your GPU, being that they are now optimized your GPU/integrated graphics will also have to work less thus reducing lag time and improved performance & resources where it's really needed--online gaming, you tube, or whatever.

  2. Windows 10 fonts are blurry and hard to read

    Hi,

    This didn't help either Tweak Monitor Settings :( and according to ATI my graphics card is running drivers that support Windows 10.

    The best help thus far is using the guide from this link to tweak the monitor settings (LG 24GM77 OSD Setup And Calibration).

    Thanks,

    -Michael

    Hi Guys and Gals,



    Would a member please advise on what can be tweaked in the settings to improve battery performence, and what app is best to monitor this and cpu usage and where to get that 'app' from.
