monitor profiles with NVIDIA Geoforce FX5900XT
Feb 24, 2007

I really hope someone can put me out of my colour management misery here (how many times have you heard that?)

I'm running the above video card with the latest drivers on a XP machine with plenty of RAM etc....

When I calibrate my monitor using the Greta MacBeth eye-one Display 2, it generates me a nice new profile which loads up and changes the display. So far so good.

When I reboot my PC however, the display briefly loads the profile, then it gets replaced with a totally different colour shift which is much darker, and yellower. I check the NVIDIA display settings and it says that my current Greta MacBeth generated profile is loaded, and yet the colours are nothing like how they were when the calibration actually ran and generated the profile originally. If I repeat the calibration, I get the same effect - the new profile is light and balanced looks correct to my eyes.

Is the video card (or windows...) is loading up a LUT which overrides the assigned profile?
