I don't really think you get the problem. I thought I had it fixed by updating the graphic card control panel, but now the problem is different. I edit everything on premiere and on the timeline everything looks perfect (brightness/contrast/saturation/etc), but when I export it (with any codec/compressor at all) it looks WAY less dark than what I wanted it to look. I tried calibrating the monitor using the graphic cards' control panel, using the adobe gamma, using the monitor's own calibration controls, and I even bought one of those HUEY claibrators. The problem is always the same. Bottom line is: you can calibrate everything EXCEPT the image on premiere's timeline. Whenever I tried these calibration tools, the image on the timeline didn't change at all and everything else did. Before having this graphic card (it came with my new pc) I had a simple matrox gs400 and I never experienced this problem. I really don't know what else to do. My options simply ran out.
