I was not sure if I posted this under Hardware or Software - Applications, so sorry if it would be best under the latter.
First my system info:
Dell XPS 16 laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3670
My problem is fairly simple, my display saturation is way too low. I found it out when I compared this same image on my TVs: while it's supposed to be orange on my laptop it's really faded, yellowish. Then comparing others I noticed that my laptop was alwats lacking color, looking faded.
So I opened photoshop and tried to adjust the image on my laptop to look similar to the same displayed on my TV and I could only manage that by highly increasing the saturation.
So my attempts at fixing this:
First I used the calibration on the control panel but it didn't fixed at all as it only adjusts color.
Knowing it had to do with the display driver, I downloaded the one for my model directly from AMD ATI website but it didn't recognized my built-in monitor (it had saturation control). After contacting them they told me it was a generic driver and that I should download one from Dell's website.
So I did that and the my monitor was recognized perfectly but the display software has no controls for saturation, only color and gamma which doesn't help at all. I contacted Dell but they couldn't help me since my warranty is over. They just told me to reinstall BIOS and display drivers and run Dell Diagnostics which I did to no result, everything was just fine.
So the question is: How can I adjust the saturation if my display driver software doesn't offer me that option?
