I have 2 computers, the older one has a Gforce 6600 and the newer one the 7600 GS. Both are running on Acer 19" wide screens. I'm a photographer and it's crucial that both sreens took the same. The thing is the older screencard displays the photos perfectly. On the new PC the photos has harsh colours and it just doesn't look right. I've tried a few callibration utilities, but none of them can fix my problem. Do I really need to go a and spend money on a calibration spider?

the drivers might be clashing with one another. note that if you use windows vista, it comes mostly pre installed with most basic drivers, thus try to uninstall the one from gforce by giong to your control panel-system-device manager-drivers. i am sure you screen will be ok to tell you that its drivers were interfered with.
if this is not the case, please post a comment and i will try to find a best alternative for you problem.
The two cards(Gforce Nvidia card) might not be compatible for your
motherboard because they're for heavy graphics like playing games, and
*********** board is old that you;ve mentioned. including the
message memory range unavailable. Try using your old card with the new
actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.
1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.) 2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer. so that you can enter to bios setup. 3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration" (some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter. 4. Find " primary graphics adapter" 5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci" If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP" 6. press F10 to save and exit the setup. 7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.
Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.
