  • Replied in VGA / DVI
    I think he initially belived that it didn't have DVI - probably because he has been using the VGA connection for so long. Also - an online PDF manual (albeit for the 226BW) suggests that it may ...
  • Are you sure about it being a "226W" - or is it '226 B W' ? If it was the later, then it has a rear DVI connection - in which case, all you would need would be a DVI to DVI cable. Presumably ...
  • Out of curiosity... What is the motherboard model? What current memory modules, make, model, speed and latency spec'? What CPU, and is it over-clocked? As a broad generalisation/simplification, ...
  • I'm curious to know exactly what you mean by 'eye strain'? What are the symptoms you experience? It may just be that you are working right at the limit of your near focus - possibly, the onset of ...
  • Not difficult to research - but difficult to find an absolute consensus. An ad hoc 'for example'... https://hypertextbook.com/facts/2006/JenniferLeong.shtml The issue really isn't one of 'range' as ...
  • Few, if any, modern cameras output 10 bit RAW (except perhaps sometimes at high ISOs). Most cameras' RAW output will be 12 bit minimum - many 'serious' cameras will probably be 14 bit RAW - and I ...
  • I suspect Lightroom/Capture One would actually use ' spatial ' dithering, not 'temporal'. 'Temporal' dithering involves very rapidly/continuously switching pixels states (faster than the eye) - ...
  • Display 'gamut' and display 'bit level/depth' are separate and independent things. A monitor does not have to be '10 (30) bit' in order to be 'wide gamut'. To date, many, if not most, 'wide gamut' ...
  • To me 2700 GBP is a staggering amount of money for a 'keen hobbyist' PC (minus the VAT, roughly 3000 USD). Question: Why do you think you might need that particular 800 GBP Quadro card - given that ...
  • Instead of being so petulant - you might instead try to address, or contend, the actual points that were made. I am not 'trolling' you, nor anyone. It is just a matter of getting facts and ...
  • Well, you would (probably) be using 16 bit mode (48 bit colour) in Photoshop - to avoid cumulative 'rounding errors' as such, which arise primarily from editing, etc (which may also include colour ...
  • I suspect he understands just as well as you do (I'm being generous, to you). Of course it does. Higher bit depth = greater precision = smaller rounding/truncation error = finer gradation. All that ...
  • Windows has provided some level of colour management API since 'Windows 95'. But... a) Windows actual use of colour management within its OS has not been/still is not necessarily complete. b) ...
  • In what sense? What do you mean by "...have a profile..." ? Not all monitors are supplied with profiles files (e.g. 'xxx.icc' etc) - many are - but many are not. Why is it "...a matter of which..." ? ...
  • Don't know why you are suddenly seeing this - is this the first time you've gone to 'Windows Update' on this machine? Regardless - here is some background reading... https://www.howtogeek.com/23482 ...
  • Your system may be 'bottlenecked' by that 3.8 MHz, 1980s processor. :-O P.S. But, then again, this is an 'old' message thread.
  • Well, I installed it for someone else - and very briefly test ran it - and it looked to be working OK. Needed to run it once using 'Run as Administrator' in order for it to remember the answer ...
  • In my experience, Photoshop CS2 runs fine on Win 10 .
  • Not really sure - the scope of the 'Power management > Hard disk' control is not very clear. It seems - rather ironically - that there have been many very disgruntled Windows 8 & 10 users ...
  • I think the device would need to be un-plugged/re-plugged in order for Windows to reconnect. Not very convenient. Fairly common, in my experience - although I usually find that closing various ...
