I have a laptop with Intel HD 4600 and an Nvidia GTX 960m. I have the latest drivers from Intel's website (18.104.22.16858).
I created a new profile called "CSGO", after deleting my previous one that worked fine. It increases my screen's saturation when a game runs (CSGO). The profile loads up fine but my problem is when I close the trigger game.
It now doesn't revert to default graphic settings, i.e. the saturation stays quite high as it's set to my "CSGO" profile. It used to revert to default settings but now it seems that the "current settings" take on whatever settings were loaded with the previously run profile.
I now have to manually revert to default graphic settings after closing the game, whereas before it did it automatically.
I'm not sure what the problem is, as like I said, this has just started to happen, so any help would be appreciated.
I have tried creating lots of new profiles to get it to work, but they never do. I delete the profile and try again but the settings never automatically revert to default settings.
As for anything that may have caused it, my memory is a bit foggy so I'm struggling to remember. I think the game I use as a trigger crashed and caused a hard crash for my laptop (Windows crash type: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION). I have reinstalled the game and downloaded the latest Intel drivers since then and already have the latest drivers for everything else.
I don't know what else to do, as I said in my original post, I'm doing the exact same thing and for some reason the "current settings" take on the display settings of the "game" profile (I checked and the game is no longer running in task manager in any capacity).
For reference, the only thing different in my "game" profile is the saturation is raised to 65 in the "display settings" of the Graphics Control Panel.
Before I tried following this advice, I kept on creating new profiles, trying to solve the problem with luck. I then encountered a new problem with the profile failing to be triggered by the trigger .exe file at all (tried multiple different .exe files to make sure it wasn't the files fault). I tried your advice to the letter and it unfortunately hasn't worked in fixing my original or new problem.
I feel like I could reinstall my OS but that's my last resort that I don't really want to have to do again (had a problem early last year with my mouse's driver disappearing and failing to be reacquired).
