Re: Problems with my laptop screen

I cannot choose any white point, any black, any contrast and so on...with the software provided with the box (it's an old product though). So I launch the software and let the device read the coloured squares.

I love the "get a Huey pro", so easy... (doesn't help to understand the problem, does it?)...I you have read my first post properly, you'll know that nothing can beat my stuff...

just teasing....

Re: Problems with my laptop screen

Have you checked for any software updates from Datacolor? The reason I ask is that I use a Spyder 2 and some updates have been issued. No idea if this will help but from Datacolor site:

http://support.datacolor.com/index.p...emid=104&nav=0

Installer for Spyder2express 2.3.6
Requirements: Spyder2express sensor


Operating System Support
32-bit and 64-bit versions of: XP and Vista

Features:
There are no new features in this update.

If you are currently running 2.2 then do not install this update.

If you are running Windows XP x64 or Vista x64 and you purchased the retail product that does not include 64 bit support then please download and install this version.

If you previously updated to 2.3.5 and then encountered a color cast when calibrating an LCD monitor then install this update.

Fixes:
Added 64-bit Spyder driver to support Windows 64-bit systems.

Re: Problems with my laptop screen

So now, thank you all, I think I got the clue...

Something in my initial sets up weren't good (though I had reset the standard values, but I think I forgot one from the Nvidia software) and I made again the calibration, and figured out that I had a problem with the device doesn't stick properly to the screen (The display is not thick enough to fit the "hanger") so I had to hold it all over the process to make it fit. Now it's far better. I also checked my colour profiles assignments in PS and I think I got one or two issues that I need to sort out...

So I thank you all for all your help and ideas...
Because it was really a pain....
