I have had this same issue with many GeForce videocards on different monitors (not sure about ATI cards) - default colors are too bright, greys become glowing whites. I have to run "Nvidia Control Panel" and then set gamma, brightness and contrast all to 0. The brightness becomes as it should be but I am losing all greys and color shades.

In good old XP days I had default nvidia color settings and everything was fine. All issues started somewhere from XP SP2 or so.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have you tried fiddling with the Digital Vibrance settings in nVidia control panel? I'd reduce them, if I were you and check for changes.

You could check the monitor settings and adjust them to your likings (not really sure on how to do that, but you could always google it =]
