Hi, my problem is: SOmetimes, my monitor have bad color, it doesent looks like usualy, it looks bad, the color is different, bad, it appears in a grey fundal, transparency, i donw know what is the problem,...

Check the video connection cable. Unplug it from monitor and computer, and fix it again, completely screwing it. When there is poor color, try to move/slowly pull the cable on both sides. The best solution to try is to install a completely new video cable.
Hope it helps. Dan

Different color test patterns keep cycling .

This could be a computer or monitor problem. The reason that display shows up is because the monitor is not getting a power good signal from the computer. If a monitor doesn't get a power good signal it goes into test mode. It could be the monitor has a fault that is not allowing it to detect the computer, or the video card or computer itself isn't functioning properly. If you can, hook the monitor to a computer that you know is working properly. This will tell for sure if it is the monitor or not, and eliminate that possiblity. Then you will know if it is the monitor or computer. If the computer is the problem you'll need more help troubleshooting it.

Severe gradient issues / problems with darker grays

So your sure when you go into the monitor settings, and color, it is set to like 9300k or something? It probably isn't the monitor, because the video games you said display just fine.
