I bought a nice new shiny screen, but it got some terrible green hue. Video card software is nvidia and for the life of me I can't find how to set custom colors. It's got some predefined choices, but none of them look good. Should I be looking to add a new video card, or is there some hidden setting where I can get it to how I like.

The current setting only allow me to change brightness, contrast and gamma, but whatever I do it still doesn't look good at all.

There's also some color profile with a graph, but I can't get it changed at all as the cursor/icon can move about, but right or left clicking gets me nowhere.

As a starting point, I would set all video card parameters back to factory defaults and then play with settings on the monitor. Having said that, a pink or blue hue could be a color temperature issue, but a green hue sounds more like a fault.

It's a long shot, but have you tried a different video cable?

It would also be interesting to know the reference of the screen.

Every monitor I have installed in the last few years has set-up software for initially adjusting the color. But, as stated prevously, if one of the color channels seems way off, it is likely the cable.
