monitor profiles

I get the following error message on my dell pc after calibrating with Spyder 2

"Sorry no calibration data was found in the profile "E1777FP" for display Dell E1777FP. Please select another profile using Profile Chooser(1168)"

The profile is one I cannot seem to remove from the monitor and every time I try it tells me there was a problem removing it and it leaves it where it is.
I assume this is a profile associated by Dell for the monitor. Tell me how to remove it and assiciate my new profile please.

When I switch it on the monitor tries to auto adjust and I get this error message too

......... at least to return you to the start.

Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Colour Management ... and Remove any colour profile which is there.

If like my display there is no profile showing, you will then default to the original - no annoying messages. You can decide for yourself whether to go on and try again.

Thanks I have done this. I then tried to recalibrate but unfortunately with the same result as the first time. My monitor is a cheap Dell 1777FP and it might be at fault. I will call them in the morning.

Thanks again

I wish you luck.
I have dabbled in the past with monitor calibration, but either due to lack of diligence on my part or inadequate software, I gave up!

Do you really need to recalibrate the default screen? Mine is pretty good as it is, and so many other factors influence what is a subjective thing anyway.

The heavyweight picture editing apps like PhotoShop and PhotoPaint have their own calibration options.
If you are into serious commercial graphics it does become important to have a standard setting by which other factors can be measured.

For me at home ...... the result will either 'Do or Not Do!'
