Question

Color calibrating screen on a dual monitor system.

I am running Windows 10, and trying to calibrate my monitor which is the #1 monitor on a dual monitor setup. I am using the Spyder 4 Express for calibration.

When I put the calibration device on my #1 monitor and go through the calibration process, it saves the new profile, but the new profile does not correct the #1 monitor, it is effecting the color of the #2 monitor.

How can I solve this problem?

Back to spyder.

We bought our son a Spyder and it was the single monitor version. I recall that for 2 displays either you get the multi monitor version or if lucky the monitors are same make, model, same production run, connected over a digital link (HDMI for example) and in that case a single calibration works. But given all there is out there I find folk with a collection of parts so back to Spyder to ask about multi monitor calibration.

Spyder has a sale that ends today. I just ordered the Spyder 5 which will calibrate two monitors.
