Photoshop and monitor calibration

I just bought a new monitor (LG IPS235) and when I open Photoshop CS6, this message pops up: "The monitor profile "LG IPS235" appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software." (BTW, I didnt run any calibration software and I dont think my monitor has any calibration software). And there are two choices "Ignore profile" - "Use Anyway".
How Photoshop knows my monitor is defective and needs calibration? Anyway, PS seems to be right. When I choose the option "Use anyway" and I open some image with 100% white background, the white has strong warm cast. But when I open same image outside of Photoshop, the white is really white.
And when I open Photoshop with the option "Ignore profile", everything seems to be ok (like outside of PS).
So whats going on? What should I do?

BTW, I found this paper in the monitor's box:

Does it mean something? How can I assure the display quality according to this?

Re: Photoshop and monitor calibration

A disk should have come with the monitor which usually installs some driver s/w specific to that monitor along with that monitors unique profile. You are likely getting that message because your PC is using your previous monitors profile or some other default profile and PS has detected that the profile does not belong to the new monitor. By ignoring the warning you have told PS to use the wrong profile. Consequently your colors will be displayed incorrectly. Try running the s/w that came with your monitor.

I installed some drivers I found on CD. The installation software was really weird, I try it again. How do I find out the profile of my new monitor was installed?

EDIT: I just reinstalled the drivers and restarted the computer, but no change in Photoshop.

Re: Photoshop and monitor calibration

This is what advice I got on Adobe forum:

You have several reasonable choices...

1. (Assuming the monitor has the capability) you could set the monitor to a preset patterned after a well-known standard profile and associate the standard profile with the monitor in your OS color-management settings.

2. You could get a calibration and profiling device and measure your system's performance. Once a custom profile is developed from the measurements, the software will associate it with your monitor, replacing the defective one.


So I choosed the first option until I will get some calibration device.
