Windows 7: Help with color calibration resetting. Acer S232HL 23' monitor.

Help with color calibration resetting. Acer S232HL 23' monitor.

I'm using the Acer eDisplay Management software to calibrate the color of my monitor. It looks amazing up until I enter a full screen application or try running a program as administrator, then it just resets itself back to default settings (or whatever settings I had previously, but without the color calibration.). Anyone have a solution? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I have an Acer Aspire 5742 with Intel GMA HD. 4 gigs of ram, and an i5 460m. I do not want to use the standard windows color calibration, nor do I want to use Intel's from the graphics options.

Since it's a TN panel colour calibration is virtually futile, the minute your gaze shifts so too will the contrast, therefore your perception from one minute to the next will vary.

Visit TFT Centrals website and see if they have a custom made colour profile for your monitor, or otherwise use manual calibration with a device like a spider.

This really isn't a solution at all. TFT Centrals has no color profiles, and buying extra hardware is out of the question.

You can rent spider calibration gear, I don't believe I suggested purchasing it... but as I've also already said, calibrating a TN panel is futile... just Google for an ICC profile for your monitor, and if TFT Central don't have one then somewhere else will of course...

Not really interested in renting any calibration gear, I just want my monitor not revert back to previous settings. I like the way it looks when the colors are calibrated, so saying it's futile is like, your opinion, man. Could not get any results for any ICC profiles for the monitor either.

Any other solutions?

If the software you're using is changing the monitor's internal settings and not playing with the video LUT and if the monitor works the same way as my Acer x243 then setting changes made with software won't stick unless you switch the monitor off. That causes it to save the current User-Mode settings.

I had no difficulty finding the colour profile and inf driver for your monitor.

They're attached.

Unfortunately, powering off the monitor then powering it on does not save the color calibration. It still resets when I enter a full screen app.

Qdos, where do I place the ICC file and the options file? Thank for finding that for me as well.

The odds are without the INF file the monitor is reverting to a generic "plug n' play" type after entering a full screen application.

To install the INF driver do as follows:-

Right-click on the desktop then select Screen resolution.

Click Advanced Settings.

Select the Monitor tab.

Click Properties.

Select the Driver tab then click Update Driver.

Select Browse my computer for driver software.

Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

Click Have Disk.

Specify path to this monitor INF then click Open.

Example: C:\DRIVERS\WIN\MONITOR

Click OK.

Confirm the correct display type, then click Next.

Windows has finished installing. Click Close.

Click Close for Display Propertries.

Click OK for the Monitor tab.

Click OK for the Display Settings.

To install the colour profile do as follows:-

Right-click on the desktop then select Screen resolution.

Click Advanced Settings.

Click the Colour Management Tab.

Click the Colour Management button.

Devices Tab.

Use the top drop down menu to identify the monitor.

Bottom left click add.

Browse to the Colour Profile file location.

Specify path to this monitor INF then click Open.

Example: C:\DRIVERS\WIN\MONITOR

Finally, click your way back out using OK all the way.

If this doesn't resolve the problem then look at your graphics drivers and settings
