  1. yea… i just brought a new asus lcd monitor also have same problem, and the white color nearly become yellow color… they dint check before packing or their eyes having problem? XD

  2. I’ve created ICC profile with Calibration tool at Control Panel in Windows 7. I thing it’s a better way, which loads at system startup, before the AMD GPU tool loads.

  3. Thanks for this tip, this helped me out while diagnosing color off-balance while unplugged. Looking deeper, the weird display is really caused by the PowerPlay Vari-Bright setting that is enabled by default, causing the display to normalize only when plugged. Turning that off returns the display to normal.

  4. thanks for this guide…
    just a simple step but its mean alot for me…
    before this, when i’m using photoshop, some object with lower opacity and with transparant background won’t show on the lcd..
    now it shown… 🙂

  5. This is not the result of a badly calibrated screen but rather a feature by AMD known as Vari-Bright™.

    Vari-Bright™ attempts to conserve power by adaptively increasing the screen contrast according to the screen contents. This results in increased readability while at the same time decrease the brightness of the LED backlighting for the screen, thus saving power. The down side to this is badly crushed highlights and whites.

    You can simply disable this feature by right-clicking anywhere on the desktop:
    AMD Catalyst Control Center > Power > PowerPlay™ > Enable Vari-Bright™

    Attempting to counter blown whites by decreasing the screen brightness digitally will not work because Vari-Bright™ works adaptively. You may get crushed blacks and loss of color fidelity as the total number of colors will be reduced.

    I hope this will help all AMD users.
    Pass around this message so that other AMD users will be free from this frustration.
