Screen turning black and white
Suddenly my screen is turning black and white about 10 seconds after logging in but works fine in safe mode. I have dual GeForce 9800 GTX cards and my OS is Vista Home Premium.

This happened to me. I just came home today and my screen is black & white with a couple of glimpses of color during start up. I tried different monitors and I just updated my graphic drivers to no avail. I have searched the net for hours with no info on it. I am running a GeForce 9800 GTX as well. Help!

I am having the same issue on a 9800GX2, and I have been running fine with the latest drivers since their release. This morning I start up and now my secondary monitor is black and white. It is not the digital vibrance issue because when I set it back to 50 and hit apply, it reverts back to 0.


Very frustrating

Ok, I am replying to my own post. This is what I had to do to get it to work. First I shut down the system and unplugged the secondary monitor. I then fired up and let it boot without a secondary monitor. I shut back down and plugged in the secondary again, then powered back up. When it came on, it didn't activate the secondary monitor, so I went in to the nVidia display controls which showed that the monitor was connected but not active. I activated the monitor and it came up black and white again. However, this time when I went to the color settings, all of the controls were active for me to adjust. I pushed the digital vibrance back to 50 and this time it held on when I applied it. In my prior post, I forgot to mention that when I had the secondary monitor selected, all of the Brightness, Contrast, etc... controls were grayed out and the Digital Vibrance would not change anything.

Sheesh...what a pain that was.
