Hello, I hope somebody can help me because i’m literally trying every existing fix on the web but nothing seems to work.
I recently bought an Asus zenbook pro 15 oled, it runs windows 11 and trying to hold the color calibration has been a pain untill now.
I own a spyder X , not the most accurate device for this kind of display, but it is what it is.
First time i tried to calibrate the new laptop, ran DisplayCal using generic mode and white level drift compensation, scored 99.9 srgb and around 96 adobe rgb, and colors are kinda consistent between my laptop, smartphone and external IPS monitor (considering the difference between ips technology and oled, cant complain)
Everything is fine untill the laptop goes to sleep mode or turned off, as soon as I wake him up the calibration is gone and the profile loader icon grayed out, showing the message “Calibration loading is handled by the operating system”.
Really weird because during the DisplayCal installation i checked the box to allow him to manage the color profiles/calibration.
by the way, first thing I tried to do was going to: ” Color managment – advanced – change system defaults – advanced” to unchek “Use windows display calibration”.
It worked, but again, everytime the laptop goes in sleep mode or turned off the calibration resets iteslf to this standard asus ICM profile, i also tried to remove it, but it spawns again reboot after reboot.
Then i started looking on the web for a fix, i tried to disable the calibration loader on the task scheduler but didn’t work.
Tried detleting all the defaults ICM files in the Asus folder (they keep spawning back)
I have read something about AsusSplendid related to this problem (that’s why i detleted all the icm files on that folder), but due the respawning the only solution seems to be unistalling MyAsus software, and it’s not an option because i have warranty, battery and Oled protection settings enabled on that application
Tried nvidia control panel settings, but there are only 3d settings due the double GPU, so all this stuff is managed by AMD.
Tried looking on the AMD software but didn’t found anyting related to display calibration.
Tried setting the last displaycal calibration profile as standard color profile in windows color default and WCS profile for ICC in ” viewing condition profile “.
Nothing worked, everytime I turn the pc on colors are off and I have to uncheck manually the box in color managment.
Anyone has an idea? This is so frustrating, last time on a big e-commerce shooting I had to bring my desktop with the external monitor to shoot thetered to CaptureOne 🙁
Sorry in advance for my poor english , it’s my second lenguage , I hope everything is understendable

The profile loader is blocked by MyAsus Splendid.
Unfotunately, even if you remove Splendid, it will be automatically reinstalled after some time.
Your best option is to stick to the system profile loader, as it’s pretty much impossible to permanently remove Splendid.2023-05-26 at 11:47 #39650
Thank you for your reply Kuba.
Can I at least set the calibrated profile on the system profile loader?
Even if i select my custom ICC profile on the color management window, after the reboot it goes back to that strange yellowish asus ICM profile.
Is it because I still have the calibration loader disabled from the task scheduler?2023-05-26 at 11:59 #39651
Yes, most likely
Re-eneble the system profile loeder in Task Scheduler and make sure that “Use Windows display calibration” is checked.2023-05-26 at 12:37 #39652
make sure that “Use Windows display calibration” is checked.
well, that’s the point of the problem, it continues to auto check itself hahahahahaha
By the way, i’ve enabled the system profile loader in task scheduler, also scheduled to re-apply the profile every 10 minutes, but if i uncheck the “use windows display calibration” box i notice that the profile applied by windows is the asus standard, even if i’ve set the custom calibration as default2023-05-26 at 13:48 #39653
Little update: I am more confused than before!
I’ve disabled again the system profile loader and tried another fix found on reddit, the second one.
I’ve noticed that the name of the display, on color managment window, changed from “myasus_splendid” to “integrated”!
I had a feeling this was the right fix, but it keeps to autocheck the “use windows display calibration” box.
Maybe the problem is not splendid?2023-05-26 at 16:15 #39655
Go to C:\ProgramData\ASUS\ASUS System Control Interface\ASUSOptimization\Splendid
Inside there you will find a .sys file with your username, open it with the notepad and change the value CMDEFICMExist=YES to CMDEFICMExist=NO as well as for the value ICMEXISTS.
Save the changes then right click the .sys file and change its properties to read only.
Reboot the system and splendid will be off!
reddit link if u want to thank the guy, he saved me and every asus owner2023-05-26 at 16:57 #39656
Ok, it’s not working 🙁
for some reason now the profile loader is working and “use windows display calibration” is unchecked, but averytime i reboot a new asus icm profile will be set as default in color managment, and now the”
This makes no sense, just WHY asus?2023-05-27 at 11:30 #39657
“Use Windows display calibration” must be checked, not unchecked.2023-05-27 at 12:13 #39658
Actually as soon as I check “use windows display calibration” the profile loader stop working.
I started to uncheck it because Florian suggested to do it to a member with a similiar problem!
By the way i think the problem is solved, i’ve rebooted 4/5 times and the profile loader is working, windows is not automatically swapping the color profile with the asus default one and everyting’s fine.
For me worked this procedure: editing the .sys file in Splendid folder and changing properties in read only -> fully unistall integrated gpu + display drivers -> repairing myasus app
I also used Rapr to unistall a driver called myasus_splendid.inf under the section “extensions”, i don’t know if this actually made a difference, but after this procedure my display name in Color Management changed from “myasus_spendid display” to “integrated monitor”
for more detailed info check the reddit links i’ve posted above!
