Since you have the Spyder3Elite you should be using the Advanced calibration mode. In this mode you are given on-screen guidance to help you manually adjust the control on the monitor in order to get the right values for brightness, contrast, and the individual R, G, and B values before the software takes over. Doing this manual adjustment of the monitor will give you the best calibration.

Start the Spyder3Elite software. Use the Go/Preferences command and click on Advanced Settings. In the User Interface box select Advanced then check the box next to Show RGB Sliders as an option in the Identify Color Controls screen before clicking OK. Click OK in the Preferences pop-up box.

Now when you do your calibration you will see a graph showing your current setting for brightness, contrast, or R, G, B and the suggested range. Manually adjust the monitor controls until the values fall within the suggested range before letting the software finish the calibration. You can get the screen to renew by clicking on the command at the bottom of the instructions box.

There are a few things I was not doing here with my Spyder. I'm surprised several people here offered more information than the support person did at Datacolor.
