Just took delivery of an impressive Dell U2410

Calibrated it with a Spyder3Elite and whilst the colours look fine my mouse pointer in Internet explorer , Lightromm and CS5 have a strong cyan colour to it.

Everything else look fine though?

Has it been cyan all this time? lol.

I've heard of that happening before. Same thing, right after calibrating the U2410. Sorry, but don't remember the solution.

I just tried it and it wouldn't grab the pointer.

It's odd because it seems to be more cyan when over certain colours.

Like on this forum, when the pointer is over white it looks blue, yet in word it look almost fine.
On the aero bar in Win7 it looks white.

I recalibrated and it has helped, I found turning the sharpness up helped a bit too. Odd

Then again I am seeing colours I never saw before. In a good way.

It may be just an optical illusion... When I calibrated my screens for the first time, they ended up looking very red for a while. It was actually showing the correct color, they had just been very blue before calibration, but it took a long time to get used to it and accept it as "normal."

And since we perceive colors based on what other colors are nearby, it's possible that different programs could make the mouse look different.

Just a thought.

That's what I was thinking.

I'm loving this monitor, I've moved from a Ilyama 24" 1920x1080 and I wouldn't of thought the 1200 pixels would of made that much difference but it does and not having to lean into the screen because of the brightness differences is fantastic.

One thing I remembered from the other similar case, is that the pointer looked normally white in Photoshop, but tinted in Windows.
