Hello,

Im working on Windows 7 x64 service pack 1

Dispcal v.3.1.7

Argyll v. 1.9.2

When I open Dispcal my monitors colors just go insane. See in attached screen shot.

It worked just fine this morning. now i cant fix it.

I uninstalled Discal and re-installed. but didnt help.

I have tried removing all the profiles from Windows color management and setting everything back to defaults. but nothing helps.

I have tried to install , through Dispcal, differenct profiles but it wont let me.

Do you know how to fix?

  1. Hi,

    When I open Dispcal my monitors colors just go insane. See in attached screen shot.

    Please don’t use the GIF file format to provide screenshots, as they are always limited to a palette of a maximum of 256 colors and thus may introduce additional artifacts (e.g. through dithering or quantization) into screenshots. Use PNG in “True Color (32-bit)” format instead (this is the default and only PNG format supported by the Windows Snipping tool).

    Despite this caveat, the screenshot looks as if your desktop is set to a very low color depth. Check your display adapter settings, i.e. right-click the desktop, select “Screen resolution…”, click “Advanced settings”, in the window that opens under the “Adapter” tab select “List all modes…” and make sure the selected mode contains “True Color (32-bit)”. Also check on the “Monitor” tab that “Colors” is set to “True Color (32-bit)”.

    It worked just fine this morning. now i cant fix it.

    This seems to indicate the problem isn’t related. What kind of graphics card and drivers are you using? Re-installing the graphics driver may help.

  2. Thanks for getting back to me.

    So my monitor and system are set to 32 bit true color. I just double checked. Also, it only looks like this when Dispcal is opened.

    When Dispcal is exited and not running then everything returns to normal.

    I attached a png to follow your advice. I didnt think about the gif.

    Is there a specific log file that might help narrow this down?

    Thanks!

  3. Success.

     

    uninstalling dispcal and reinstalling did not fix the issue using the normal stand alone installer.

    however, dispcal started up correctly after uninstalling and reinstalling using zero-install.

     

  4. Very weird. There’s not really any difference in functionality or otherwise between the standalone and 0install version (other than the packaging).
