Brandon,

I've updated the tutorial a bit. Please try again to see if your calibrated profile will stick afterwards now.

Hi,
Thank you for posting this. I've tried everything in your tutorial but my calibration still does not stick. I'm using Intel integrated graphic (HD3000) and not sure what keeps resetting the color profile.
I already run latest patch on both graphic driver and win update.
1. Only way I can recall my profile is to open calibration and click cancel. ("Reload current calibrations" button does not work)
2. I never get UAC at any step.
3. I also try to add profile loader activation through windows task scheduler (task ran, but profile is not reloaded)
4. 3rd party loader can temporary fix problem by selecting other profile, then re-select calibrated profile. Then, profile is reloaded.

Any idea? BTW, this work perfectly on my other machine (Thinkpad R61 with intel 965 on W7 Ultimate 32-bit)

Maybe, this is my bad news?

Apparently, my new machine has LED-backlit and it has more blue cast by default (than fluorescent back lit)....

Hello Tempoct, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That doesn't look good at all, and would explain so many color setting resets.

Wide-Gamut Display

Hi

When going to run the display color calibration feature in Windows 7 I get the following message:

'This display currently uses a wide-gamut color profile. The Display Color Calibration will create a color profile with a conventional gamut , which may be a poor fit for this display and result in distorted color appearance. Do you want to continue anyway?'

I have never used the calibration tool before as I have never needed to really, however I now have to as after installing Photoshop I get the error message on startup that I need to run monitor calibration. This obviously does indeed need doing as images displayed in Photoshop look totally different to those opened in a standard image viewer.

Should I go ahead and run the calibration tool or is there some other method that needs to be followed for wide-gamut displays?

My monitor is a Dell SP2309W.

Cheers for any advice.

Hello Rikishi,

I'm afraid that I do not have much experience with wide-gamut displays, but hopefully the two links below may be able to help you some with this.

How can I reduce saturation on my wide gamut monitor to have it display at sRGB levels? - SoftwareTalk.info

Hi,
my colors are too greenish, but when I try to calibrate colors (win 7/x64), I am getting this message: "Display calibration can't save the new calibatin. Close other programs.... The system can't find the path." I closed all programs many times.

Hello Veganula,

See if you may be able to run the color calibration while in Safe Mode, and with your AV program temporarily disabled until finished.

Hi Brink,
I already tried that and got the same message.

Thank you for your help.

I'm afraid I do not know what else to suggest for this error. Are you able to manually adjust the color settings on the monitor itself?

Hi Brink,
thanks for your time. Yes, I can adjust the monitor settings but it's not enough. Somehow the Dell computers have this wired greenish shade, visible especially on gray, and the yellow is much lighter than on other computers. I am making a small website and it is important that what I think is yellow, is not a dirty creamy color. I tried 2 other computers before this one, and they all had the same problem.
I read on another forum that it's a problem on earlier Win 7 version, but I updated my Windows and nothing changed.
I would have to upgrade it but it seems to be a very dramatic solution.

Thank you again.
