    Color Management: Vista won't hold a custom ICC profile

    I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop running Vista. I used a Spyer2Pro to
    calibrate my monitor and use the accompanying ColorVision program to load the
    resultant ICC custom profile as the default color profile via the Vista
    startup routine. The profile loads fine, and the color switches to the
    custom profile. After two or three minutes, however, the colors switch back
    to the uncalibrated Vista default profile. Only a reboot will load the
    custom profile again. Any ideas? HP was no help. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Globetrotter

    This appears to be a common problem with Vista and ICCs - possibly a bug.
    The ICC will load, but then the Gamma Look-Up Table will be reset following
    a number of different actions. See for example:

    http://neosmart.net/blog/2007/window...mma-table-bug/

    As far as I know, there is no bug number and no hotfix yet. Note that it may
    be highly dependent on your graphics card hardware and driver, as well as
    the Windows-supplied colour profile functions (unconfirmed).

    As suggested in the above blog, running the DisplayProfile utility may be a
    workaround.

    The Colour team at Microsoft have a blog site here:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/color_blog/default.aspx. You may be able to contact
    them directly to see if they know about the problem or the solution.

    Good luck with it,

    You may not use original version of Window vista. Kindly use the
    Original Version.
    Then you may not complex color combination.
