Fall Creators Update resets NVIDIA’s RGB color range to Limited

nvidia error 37

If you noticed something weird about your computer’s colors after installing Windows 10 version 1709, you’re not the only one: many gamers report that the new version of the OS resets RGB color range to Limited on computers powered by NVIDIA graphics cards, usually resulting in washed out colors. This problem often occurs with every major update and many users actually expected it with the Fall Creators Update.

This has been an issue since NVIDIA added manual override because prior to that change, the system would auto-detect levels the display used, or revert back to Limited. Interestingly enough, this problem also affects the Displayport feature in Dell monitors since Dell displays identify themselves as being HDTVs.

How to fix the NVIDIA color reset on Windows version 1709

In order to fix this issue, go to the NVIDIA Control Panel > select Display > change resolution > and then choose native resolution (2560 x 1440).
In the right-hand corner, where you see the Output dinamic range option, select Full. This problem seems to affect only people who use 60 FPS monitors or HDMI cables.

Quite a few users confirmed they had experienced this bug a few years ago. It stopped for a while only to return after Microsoft released the Fall Creators Update.

Unfortunately, this is not the only bug affecting NVIDIA graphics cards. Other gamers who installed Windows 10 v1709 experienced laggy behavior at max cap or GSync issues that caused black screen issues on startup. Fortunately, most of these problems disappeared after applying the settings listed above.
