Actually, I'm having a similar problem.
After purchasing and playing with the new Spyder 2, my monitor is MUCH warmer than looks accurate to me. On top of that, my mouse is pink now.
My color temp is 6500 and I've draped a black cloth over the crt when calibrating. I think my problem may be connected to this: my old hp monitor comes with very few settings, but it does have an unuseful set of icons that can be selected to make the display ideal for different apps. There is an icon of a person, a joystick, a camera, and a piece of paper. Selecting these appears to change the color temp, brightness, etc. Calibrating my monitor on these different settings results in slightly different results. I don't know if or how I can get rid of whatever influence these settings have. There is no 'off' setting. Is it possible my color temp is being thrown off by these icon settings?
Regardless of the settings, my mouse is still pink and everything is very warm. Example: Mr. R's latest addition to his Antarctica page, Blue Ice and Clouds, has a distinctive pink cast. I'm going by the name here, and it doesn't look BAD, but I don't think it should appear pink.
Maybe it's time to buy a new monitor.
I just downloaded a couple of different color charts available online. And while these may or may not be reliable for critical work, I used enough of them to come to one conclusion: my mouse pointer is pink but whites are white and greys appear to be grey.
Everything else does look too warm. However, I think in a week or so after I have gotten used to the new calibration, it may not seem so. By then it will be time to do it again.
