    Hi!
    Ok, I got my new screen for 8570w. As grape882008 did not have the screen, It took a long time to find one that had that screen. These screens have become very rare.

    I got the full screen assembly and it's working.

    Now I wish to calibrate the display, but I don't have the special "HP DreamColor Colorimeter" or X-Rite device to calibrate the screen. The gamma seems very high.
    I bought the X-rite eye-one display 2 that looked like the dreamcolor version, but the "HP DreamColor Calibration Solution" software is not detecting it.

    My question now: what kind of calibration have you guys used, if any? Right now I'm using DisplayCAL, but I feel that it's not using the full potential of DreamColor display. Meaning, that it's not changing the RGB led colours or writing the profile directly to the Color Board inside the screen.

    It's been a while, since you've posted this, but none the less here's my feedback:

    I didn't want to give the kidney for the dreamcolor calorimeter either, so I bought instead the colormunki, which is, in essence, the same thing and also got it on a bargain, so wasn't much of a brainer. I do photography and video editing on the side, so color representation was important for me. Imagine the bummer feeling when neither the dreamcolor board, nor any of the calorimeters I've tried (I've also tried with a spyder 3 elite) worked. Thus far I haven't been able to calibrate my screen. My brightness control doesn't work either (assuming it's because of the unsupported quadro k3100m I've got in my 8760w), so the calibration is just another drop in the ocean. Nonetheless the color representation is a ton better than what it used to be with the old TN panel, and seems to be pretty accurate (grape882008 asked me what panel I was gonna use specifically, so I'm assuming he has given me a color board, that's been pre-calibrated for the specs of the specific panel).

    If you manage to find a way out of this article 22 loop, lemme know - I'd be interested in giving the panel a shot at even more accurate calibration.

    Cheers,
    V./

    Question, If I buy the whole panel, this guy here https://world.taobao.com/item/536464938747.htm?spm=a312a.7700714.0.0.yrujvc#detail sells it for about $175 USD, for the
    8770W upper part of the dreamcolor CD screen assembly LCD screen can I just only swap it with my NON - DC panel from my 8770W Full HD? Would this is going to work? Is this all I need?

    *8770W / Quad Core / 3630QM / M4000

    Hi, I just found grape88208, on a different website, also has English language too, anyway, they sell the whole upper part of the dreamcolor CD screen assembly LCD screen, for only $105 USD whit shipping! I am wondering if buying the whole thing and just swap it with my non DC 8770W would work... But I guess I`ll take the chances for only $105 USD...

    You should contact the seller. This is not the final price, after all there is more than one panel listed.

    Hi, please see the link, add description says price for 1-3 pcs @ $80
    so I guess if it says so, they do sell only 1 most likely, I sent a message to the seller, didn't got an answer yet.
    Anyway, my question is if I but the whole LCD DC Panel, the whole upper part... is this enough to swap it?! Or I have to change my MOBO?!

    8770W 3630QM, FirePro 4000M.

    Only the assembly is required, but I'm certain that you have to tell the seller which model you want.

    Hello everyone, I'm interested if anyone got a 4K monitor working with 8770W / 8760W...
    More likely the video card (ATI FirePro 4000M) supports 4K, but I'm not sure if Display Port connector would...
    I also have an Advanced Docking Station... would be nice to know before I buy a 4K monitor... if not, I'll will go 2560 / 1440. Thanks everyone!

    Are you sure that your K4100 is not broken? Did you install recomended drivers for 8770w?
