I've recently made some changes to my system that seem now to prevent effective calibration/profiling. I'll try and keep it short and sweet. I HAD a CRT, running Vista64. The profile was fine, everything worked as expected. Recently, I had to move to an LCD monitor (Samsung 240T). Kaput.
I've narrowed the problem down now some. The monitor vendor recommended using the generic pnp driver, so I did that. Now, it appears that only the AdobeRGB space is affected (Maybe more, I haven't tested. I'm only concerned with ProPhotoRGB and AdobeRGB right now). True red is rendered as orange when I use the AdobeRGB space in PS CS3. In lightroom for example, I can look at a something red in the library, and it will look orange. When I take it into develop, the red is rendered true. LR used ProPhoto for the develop colorspace, and Adobe for the library color space, so that has helped me confirm it is a problem with the color spaces in particular, not necessarily the system overall.
I'm hoping someone here could help. I've googled, and found similar descriptions of this problem, but the proposed fix (delete corrupted profile and try again) does not help. I've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled all parts - monitor driver, card drivers, puck driver, calibration software, with the same result every time. HELP! Thanks in advance.
