Windows 7: Display Calibration problem, please help

Display Calibration problem, please help

I've searched on these forums and google and I'm beginning to think I can't fix this problem. Basically what happens is this. Everytime my computer goes into Sleep or Hibernate mode, it resets the color calibration. If I restart/shut off the computer, the settings are OK. But only if I use sleep or hibernate. It just won't have the settings I have calibrated. This means I am going back into the calibration settings and changing them again. I have already been in the color management box and have tried with those settings. I'm begging for help, this is a very anoying problem >.<. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

This will solve your problem. I just do not know if it works with Windows 7. It says for windows, but its dated 06.

Hmm, I tried what you gave, didn't work, your help is appreciated though. Unless I didn't do something properly. I double clicked the .exe file and it popped up a window, than t just had the srgb profile selected.

Also one more thing, would it be possible to save a calibration and throw it in the quick bar at the bottom right? Than instead of going through all that crap, I just have to click a button and wala?

Kind of, it is quicker than loading through control panel and clicking yes to everything in the calibration setup, but what I was looking for was more like, I click an Icon, and my screen calibrates to the proper color settings automatically. Your very helpful btw, thank you.

I'm also going to add that if I go to the color management profile window, and choose "Reload Current Calibration" it goes back to what I wanted. I'm just baffled why I need to do this whenever it exits sleep or hibernate?

Unfortunately my help must stop. The tutorial that I gave you is the best that I can do. Hopefully another member will have something that is more suited to your needs.
