If you connect your laptop to an external monitor or HDTV, do you see the same change in colors on both the laptop display and the external display?

What are your CPU and GPU temperatures when the color change occurs?

if you connect another screen to my laptop screen look both with the same effect if you restore default colors give both screens look good


the video card is GeForce GTX 560M and its temperature never passed 60 C or when playing Battlefield 3. Before the problem happened I was using my laptop for school assignments to tasks using MPLAP (for assembly language programs) and the temperature does not exceed 48C or 44 C


Before the problem happened I was in school using my laptop normally, get home, I turned on the laptop and since then has given me this problem



The colors change at room temperature and warm when you change the color temperature of a television if you put cold look bluer and if you put warm look redder colors, this problem I have to switch to the warm mode colors

The fact that both the laptop display and the external display behave the same indicates the problem lies with the GPU or the video driver. Your reported temperatures do not indicate a thermal issue.

I recommend performing a 'clean' NVIDIA install of version 306.23 WHQL from Windows Safe Mode. Boot into Windows Safe Mode and launch the NVIDIA 306.23 WHQL Installer. Choose "Custom Install" and check the "Clean Install" checkbox. It will remove your current NVIDIA driver files prior to 306.23 installation.

Yesterday update the driver video card but I did as you point out, what I do was install the driver as well as normal as any other software is installed, do not enter safe mode or anything I did the installation was recommended not to personalize.

When installing the driver was there at the facility said removing old driver

I will install the update as you point told him that step

By booting into Windows Safe Mode, you disable other running drivers (such as Antivirus) that may interfere with your video driver installation. It gives you the best chance of a successful installation.

Unfortunately, you still could have a poorly-seated or defective video graphics adapter.

Now install the way you told me and the problem continues
Upon entering safe mode what I realized is that in safe mode the problem does not appear, in safe mode the colors look good (normal)

Interesting that the video issue does not occur in Safe Mode. This may indicate another driver on your system is conflicting with the NVIDIA drivers. What 3rd party applications have you installed to this system?

Restoring to an earlier restore point would have solved it, but I found a much simpler solution. I am posting it because this happens on lots of ASUS laptops. I realize that the OP has already solved it. It seems it is very easy to accidentally put your ASUS laptop in a different video "mode". Hit "fn C" (the function key and the letter "C"). Holding it will show what video mode you are in. Hitting the "C" in succession will cycle you through the various "modes." Mine was in "theater" mode. Just set it back to normal and it will look fine.

I was frustrated by this because I first noticed it when I was using an external monitor with a KVM switch. If I moved the brightness in color enhancement window at all, even the slightest bit, it would solve the problem. But if I rebooted or used the KVM switch the sepia look would return. Finally I figured out the keyboard shortcut problem.
