The Monitor Calibration Thread - Page 6

post #51 of 55
I just took out my second video card and am running a single card setup, but for whatever reason anytime I load a game now, my second monitor keeps defaulting back to no icc/windows calibration color.

Anyone know a way to fix this?

I have a Yamakasi Catleap Q270, and I haven't messed with any calibration when I got it, so everything is still the same right out of the box.
The only thing I did was to check for dead pixels and that was it.

Should I calibrate my monitor? Everything seems fine, I've never messed with color calibration ever before, so I'm probably missing out.

I looked, and there was a profile here: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm
It's the last one, should I use that profile?

If you can get your hands on a calibration device, I would for sure calibrate. It made a huge difference on my u2711, which comes "pre-calibrated" within a certain range. Before I calibrated, I used a profile from tftcentral--which can be better than nothing, but at the end of the day is a lottery. No two monitors are exactly the same, so the profile very likely won't be perfect, and you would likely notice a pretty big difference between the tft icc and if/when you calibrate on your own.

I see, well I just applied the profile from tftcentral and it looks the same to me tongue.gif
I don't think I would go out and spend money on a device since everything looks fine to me, so I'm content with what I have I guess.
