Im using Adobe Photoshop and im getting this message when i use it:

"The monitor profile " " appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software"

How do i fix this?
-My monitor is a  Samsung Magic SyncMaster CX151S
-My video card is Nvidia Geforce FX5200 Ultra.

P.S-   I went to the "color management" tab in my video settings and tried to re-load the icc profile "sm151s" for my monitor...but  i still get the error message when i use photoshop. Theres a bunch of  icc and icm files but i want to use one that wont mess up my color.  I have a canon EOS10D camera..which profile should i use????

reboot and do this.

Solution 1: Create a new monitor profile.
1. Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Adobe Gamma.
2. Select the Step-by-Step Wizard, and then click Next.
3. Note the name of the profile listed.
4. Click Load.
5. Select a profile from the Color folder. Don't select the same profile that you noted in step 3. If available, select a generic profile for the monitor type. You can also select a working space profile as the basis for your profile, such as sRGB or Adobe RGB (1998).
6. In the Description text box, enter a name that is easy to remember, such as your name and the date.
7. Make the appropriate changes as you go through the Adobe Gamma Wizard.
8. In the Save As dialog box, enter the name for the Description from step 6, and click Save. The new profile is saved in the Color folder, and it is loaded automatically.
