    I'm having to recalibrate my color settings - How to fix ?


    I keep having to recalibrate my color settings or go to Advanced under Color Management and hit the " Reload current calibrations" button which fixes the problem for a day or so - but the problem keeps coming back.

    When the color goes wacky on me things like the blue side scroll bar in Firefox become so faint I cannot see it at all. I do not know why this happens and in 20 years of using Windows operating systems have never had such a problem.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    No one has any ideas on this?

    Has not anyone had this problem before?

    BTW, The checkbox in Advanced tab that says " Use Windows display calibrations" IS checked and is not grayed out. I mention this because i tried to follow the suggestions Here with no luck: ( even though this is for Windows 7, it should work the same) Stop Losing Display Calibration with Windows 7 - Laszlo Pusztai

    Do you have any Adobe applications installed? Check your startup tab in task manager, is Adobe Gamma loader in there? Do you have any kind of image manipulation programs installed?
