    When you say "crap" I was under the impression that it was pretty bad to a point that you can't see the picture. That's why I was thinking something went wrong when you updated the GC driver. Now, it looks like you have some custom color setting store in the GC and/or the application, right? In this case, if you update the driver and/or the application most likely the settings are gone. If so, then I afraid you need to borrow the tweak disc back and tweak it again. If you have the Arconis True image, what you can do is they have something called "Try&Decide" in that case, they will put a virtual clone mode for you and you can work in that mode for a long while before you decide to keep those changes or not. But anyway, in your case, you probably need to tweak it again and write down the setting this time.
