Color Calibration, problem.

Dear all,

I went to Personalize> Display> Calibrate color>

I then calibrated my color be decreasing the gama etc etc etc, and it works fine. but if i restart my computer all that i have done resets back to default.
Does any one have a clue whats going on, and if there are any possible solutions.

First, be sure you are not a Guest user. Then go to to the Windows orb or press the Windows key and type "color management" and press enter. Under "Devices > Profiles associated with this device:", what is listed?

I was having the same problem. On startup my Vaio laptop display had a red hue. I would change this by going into Intel Graphics Media Accelorator properties and tweak the settings. However on Startup it would still revert to the reddy hue display.

I then used the windows calibration tool. But I would end up with an error message: "The devices page has been refreshed due to a hardware change"

I also reinstalled the drivers yet this had no effect.

In the end I did manage to fix this problem by doing the following:


double clicking my VAIO Laptop opened up the VAIO control center.


Deselecting "Change to optimal color mode automatically"


Select : "Select from following color modes:"

Select: "Do not apply color mode"

This fix worked for me.

"Have a Vaio too and I am having the same problem, but can't find Color Mode Settings"? Could you direct me to another way of getting to the settings?
