how do i fix colors on three monitors?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have 3 different monitors and when i game, the color among the three do not match up with one another. how do i fix this?

another thing, the images across the three monitors aren't synced with each other. when i place a window in between the bezel, one side of the window is smaller than the other.

Right click > Set Resolution > Set all the monitors to the same resolution. As long as they're the same physical screen size everything should be the same.

For the monitor color, brightness, and contrast, your just going to have to calibrate each one manually from the menu on the monitor till they all look the same. There's calibration utilities built into Windows as well as your video drivers but they're meant for multi-displays using the same monitor and won't be useful to you.

Well, if your monitor resolutions aren't the same, the sizing will not be right unless you change the resolutions to have equivalent DPIs...however that's going to decrease the whole screen's picture quality if you have a screen on a resolution other than its native resolution.

As far as color and brightness and contrast, etc, that's going to just take a lot of tweaking when you have different brand and/or type monitors. You're just going to have to play around with them. What I would probably do it calibrate my primary monitor, generally the highest quality one, then start messing with the next ones to get them as close to the main monitor's setting as I could.

If you want the most streamlines experience with the best overall quality, the best option is to sell two of the monitors and buy two monitors that are the same model as the main one. When all the monitors are the same model, meaning the same size, screen type, and quality, then resolutions and DPI matches up perfectly, and the quality of the screens is comparable enough to have a calibration on all three create a unified result as far as color, contrast, brightness, etc go.
