It will using the default monitor and I see no difference when I use that over the Samsung driver.

I'm not sure how it all works together but before I installed my monitor driver my printer would print stuff way off from the colors on the screen. With the driver, they seem be in sync.

The color translation from monitor to printer is not always straight forward. Remember, the monitor uses a combination of red/green/blue dots to come up with the colors. Printers sometimes use red/blue/yellow. So it's the proper mixing of these base colors that is influenced by some of the monitor "drivers". I'm not an artist so can't get into details of primary colors, brightness, contrast, saturation, etc....

All the driver does is effect the color of your screen. Different monitors have different intensities of color so they come with a driver to make your monitor display the true color.

No magnets, no speakers. Everything is as it was and in the same place when I was using my old monitor, the only thing that has changed is the monitor.

Uninstalling and installing the updated drivers did nothing either, thought that I would rule that out.

Bummer. Looks like it may be a defective monitor.

Yep, that is what I thought. I just thought that I would ask for some thoughts about it first.

Well at least you know you can't fix it on your end, let us know how you make out when you return it :)

Will do. I figured if a hammer can not fix it then nothing else will. LOL

LOL...I get the urge to throw things out the window more than taking a hammer to it. :lol:
