Display brightness/color issue when MSI GX60 is on battery mode

Recommended Posts

I have a solution for Windows 7 users experiencing an odd brightness/color issue that happens when you are on battery power. Note: This fix only applies to Windows 7 users, I don't think it is the same issue as what is being experienced by Windows 8 users.

So here is the fix:

1. Right-click on your Desktop and select Graphics Properties. You should then be looking at the AMD VISION Engine Control Center.

2. Click on the Preferences button on the top right corner and select Advanced View. You should now see more categories under the Search field.

3. Click on the Power category and then select PowerPlay™. You should now see all the PowerPlay options to the right of the category view.

4. Either uncheck Enable Vari-Bright™ or set the Vari-Bright setting to Maximize Quality.

5. Click the Apply button at the bottom right corner. Give your display at least 5 seconds to adjust to this setting.

To test whether this setting works, unplug from the power outlet and run from battery to see if your display brightness and color is the same as when you were connected to the power outlet.

If you find your display colors are washed out or seem too bright (regardless of whether you are connected to the power outlet or on battery), you can tweak your color settings here:

1. Go back to the AMD VISION Engine Control Center and select My Built-in Displays from the category view.

2. Then select Display Color (Built-in Display). The options to tweak the colors should now be available on the right. Make sure to click Apply to make the changes effective.

3. You can try tweaking the Contrast and Brightness settings to adjust issues you may be having with the colors or brightness.

Hope the above helps.

Enjoy,

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T450s.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or already upgraded Display and after that can't adjust screen brightness, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating bios backup and to flash bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

      Hello everyone!
       
      So on occasion I host gaming nights over at my house, and usually end up hooking my laptop up to a big TV so me and a couple friends can all play all kinds of multiplayer games (either emulated or off of steam).
       
      But I was recently thinking that it would be fun to get a projector set up, so that we could play on a huge blank wall in my living room.
       
      With that being said: I'm new to purchasing projectors, so I'm not familiar with what kinds of features/specifications I should be looking for (and I'd like to keep the cost down if it's possible).
       
      So I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me on what to look for in features/specifications, affordable places to buy from, or just general info on what I'm trying to do. 
       
      Any help would be super appreciated!

      Is there a way to get a 144 HZ Display for the m18x R2? I was trying to think of a meaningful 5th Post for promotion, so there it is! Haha, but really, is there?

      Hello,
       
      It seems that new Pascal gpus in mxm form factor no longer support Surround?
       
      Any insight on why it has been disabled, or how to enable it?
       
      980 desktop mxm supports mxm according to notebookcheck.
       
      Thanks!

      Hi all! Figured since there aren't many avenues out there as of yet that properly show how to dissect your phoenix, I'd try to take up the mantle with my own experience in upgrading the LCD panel from FHD 1080 to the 4K panel. Before we get started, I'd like to present a list a useful tools to have beforehand if you intend to pursue this endeavor. I'll be providing pictures of my own tools as well as links to various components you need for purchase if you intend to follow-suit:
       
      ATTENTION HUGE PICTURE LOAD AHEAD!
