Monitor Color Calibration

Hello
WHAT is the go with Monitor Calibration?
I Purchased a Colormunki Design unit to Calibrate My Screen and after I calibrate it the screen goes totaly haywire - blotches of color and stuff!

Is Screen calibration just a joke or what?

I have Two Screens and need to be able to have them both 100% correct Color - How can I acheive this??

Thanks

It sounds like you need a degaussing. What is the make/model of your monitor.
Also, what is the make/model of your Munki?

you also have to configure the temperature as colour changes are dependent on the temparature

Monitor is a DELL 30" 3008WFP
Munki is a ColorMunki Design CMUNDE-DEV
Running Windows 7 60Bit

After I had Run it on the 30" the only way I could use the Monitor was to delete the color Profile!

did you test with another one?
FYI:

Are both screens connected to the one computer at the same time?

If so, you need a display card that can support two profiles at the same time - one per screen. Otherwise, the one profile is used for both screens - so it can onlly ever be correct for one of them!

If you physically swap the connecters to swap displays, then you just need to set the correct profile on a per-screen basis.

I changed the Windows Theme from an Aero to a Standard theme and now it seems to work.

Also I have one screen plugged into the Graphics card and thw other into the Onboard Graphics which seems to be fine with two color profiles
