unlike Windows, which can handle different resolutions on each monitor,
Linux can't do the same. As to what I've heard it's xinerama's fault ;)

I too have this problem, I have the brightness and contrast to 100% but
colors are not what they should be. The darker stuff, such as the
wallpaper and gkrellm, tends to get darker when there's something
brighter, like a white page in abiword or evolution.

I have a nVidia GeForce MX4000 and my resolution is 1024x768x24. I've
tried to modify the settings on the nvidia-settings but got the same
results :(
It's hard to watch a movie in these conditions. If anyone knows how to
fix this, please help
