I'm getting degraded monitor image quality, a kind of a washed-out look, on an old VGA monitor hooked up to my new NUC D54250WYKH via an HMDI to VGA adapter cable.
E.g., on Google Maps, roads can hardly be distinguished from the background color(s).
Endless fiddling with Win7's Appearance > Display/Personalization/Screen Resolution, etc, and the monitor's controls (brightness, contrast, "auto-detect", etc), and the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel (which came with the NUC) doesn't improve the image.
If not, and if such an adapter cable should produce perfectly good VGA quality, what should I do to achieve such quality?
Alternatively, if I purchase a mini displayport to VGA cable, might that solve the problem? And there settings on the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel which are specific to such a display cable?
Any other helpful comments will be greatly appreciated
Thanks for joining the NUC community.
I understand you are connecting monitor via video adapter HDMI to VGA.
The quality of your screen it might be related to the adapter you are currently using with the monitor and the NUC.
I know Intel has tested mini-DisplayPort to VGA cable and it seems to work fine.
We recommend using straight cables, in order to obtain high quality image.
