Preferred Solution: HueyPRO Calibration Application download?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I updated to Windows 8 pre-release and now to Windows 8.1 but have not been able to use the built in color calibration for my ThinkPad W510 4318-CTO.  Will drivers be available?

Hi! I have had a W700ds for 2 years now and HueyPro color calibration always worked like a dream. When I did the usual two-weekly calibration a few days ago, the result was way too green. I tried it again, installed the latest version of HueyPro, reset HueyPro, etc., but the same greenish color remains. Is it that my color sensor has given up the ghost? Anyone had the same problem and what was the solution? Thanks in advance.

Answer:HueyPro color calibration too green on W700ds

Roemrijkewolf, the sensor may have gone bad, which happens in some cases. On my W700, the screen has a visibly greenish cast if I switch off the calibrated results within the huey PRO software. Call tech support.I recommend that you read this before having your ThinkPad serviced. If you're familiar with doing electronic repairs yourself and want Lenovo to just send you the part, it's a fairly straightforward repair, and the procedure is in the W700ds "Hardware Maintenance Manual." They'll probably send you a new palmrest.Also, by now, many of the little air intake slots (each about 5mm, or just under 1/4" long) on the underside of your laptop are probably clogged with dust. You can see this with a flashlight and magnifying glass, particularly if you look at the patch of slots in the rear corners of the underside of the machine (that's where the two fans are). I recommend that you turn the laptop off, disconnect it from everything, close the lid, flip it over onto a cushioned surface, attach a crevice tool to your vacuum cleaner, and use that to suck the dust OUT OF ONLY those little vent slots on the bottom surface of the laptop. That helps keep the laptop's cooling system running at maximum efficiency. NEVER use compressed air to blow the dust INTO the laptop, because you don't want all that dust on the inside where it can cause problems.Good luck!

Hello, everyone.
I am an illustrator, working with a partner, printing our illustrations on greeting cards, prints, magnets and the like. We're using some low-end equipment because, as artists, we are doing our required amount of suffering before we make it big (I hope).
We use, mostly, Adobe Photoshop for image prep, then Illustrator to put out the final product. 99.9% of our work is in rich color, so we're trying to get as much out of a 6-head Epson printer as possible.
I've noticed differences between the printed result and what appears on screen since I switched printers about 3 months ago. I am familiar with the differences between RGB and CMYK models, the additive and subtractive princples in printing.
I know there's a way to bring the printer around to be more in line with what the monitor shows and have just discovered Adobe Gamma, but have never used it.
Most of the literature I've read so far talks about "profiles", but I haven't seen any real "how-to" instructions.
Is someone able to direct me to a site or information so I can put it all together?
I'd really appreciate the help.

I went and ran the built in color calibration tool in Windows 10 to adjust gamma, brightness, contrast etc but I want to restore this back to what it was before I ran this calibration tool. How do I do that? There does not seem to be an obvious "Restore Default" button anywhere.

Do I simply delete / remove the Profile listed in the box under Start-Settings-Colour Management and maybe untick the box "Use my settings for this device"?


Answer:Windows color calibration tool and resetting calibration

During color calibration you may have made changes to brightness and contrast outside windows using your monitor display menu.

Open your monitor menu from the controls on your monitor and find default or Auto settings there and reset defaults from there.

Then you can delete your profile, and proceed to recalibrate if necessary.

Question: Hueypro color cast

Greetings,I bought the w700ds about 10 months ago with XP. Everything worked like a charm. I then installed windows 7 (finally a worthy replacement) and then the problems came with hueypro. It could not evn install then it could not even calibrate. When I heard I had to install the bios drivers I did and it worked. BUT now, instead of calibrating, it pretty much destroys the colors, it gives me a nasty magenta cast. Can somebody help me? Do i need to install another specific driver? Thanks and take care

Answer:Hueypro color cast

On W701 I had same problem with magenta cast when I calibrated in wide gamut mode. I fixed by switching to sRGB mode (Control panel/Display/Change display settings/Advance settings/Monitor Color), and then calibrating.Not sure if this will be relevant to W700ds since display there is not wide gamut though...

I received my X220T a couple of weeks ago, one of the standard configurations (i7, Win 7-64bit).  I'm looking to improve the pen calibration.  It's not bad, but there are some regions of the screen where the pen tip doesn't line up well with the cursor. The only calibration I can seem to access is the 4-point calibration.  With previous tablets running Windows 7, when I reset the calibration I would get the 16-point calibration but that doesn't seem to work here.  I only get the 4-point calibration, which improves the calibration marginally.  Is there a way to get to the 16-point calibration or another method to improve the calibration? Thanks,Dave 

Answer:X220T pen/screen calibration - where is 16-point calibration?

I found that pressing the Reset button which is next to Calibration did the trick. However the calibration on my tablet is still off near some of the edges.

I am a photographer and purchased the W700 so I could perform accurate on site edits and upload them to the wire services I shoot for. After running hueyPRO the result is a strong magenta cast not even close to the same settings on a higher end Spectra view II program I use on my desktop that is nearly perfect.  If I switch back to normal the color is too cool. I will be sitting next to dozens of professional photographers Saturday at an NCAA Division I game and again Sunday at an NFL game with the largest screen in the media room representing Lenovo and the reception will not be positive. Lenovo support tells me to call x-rite-Pantone for support.  I suppose I can try that Monday but this weekend will have me submitting images I can only guess are close to accurate color. I post on this forum but am not sure why since there doesn't seem to be any Lenovo response here either. After receiving my brand new W700 that had the BSOD before I could even complete initial setup I sent it into Lenovo for repair.  My brand new system required the following parts replaced; 42W8202              VGA CARD GLM2 W EMI MYLAR45N6098               Structure FRAME17.042W8199              PLANAR FOR MXM SUPPORT W TPM W45N5411      &...

Hello all....

Scanned my HD-no boot sector virus-reinstalled XP on a clean partition; loaded Mobo drivers-all working good; updated windows xp (51 updates)
Of course, I restarted after each of the above. Total boot time, from dead screen to log in screen is 27 secs, pretty good.

My XP disk was damaged, apparently, because this is the fourth time I've installed it and the first flawless install!

Until SP2. I remembered to run the Prescott Hotfix and restarted. My SP 2 disk said something about a "corrupt file" so I went to Microsoft and downloaded it instead. After 111 Mb, it started to install, then I got the following error message:

Update.exe Application Error

The instruction 0x77f83905 referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be written. Click ok to terminate the program.

Microsoft recommends trying to reinstall, but if things are already goofed up.....
I suppose I could go to Add/Remove Programs and see if SP2 is there; then I could remove it and try again.

Not expecting a reply given the hour, but you never know.....

Actually, I'm pretty happy. This thing has never worked better!

BTW-I haven't installed Office or any other progs except Adaware and AVG until I'm sure this is a good install.

Thanks again

It sounds like you may have something running which is preventing you from being able to install/run security software.

Here are some DL links for the Rkill....LINK 1LINK 2LINK 3LINK 4Save it to your desktop and then double click to launch it (With Vista you need to right click and select run as administrator).

If you don't see the black box then delete the file and use another download link and repeat the steps.Once it runs you should be able to run Malwarebytes.

When trying to download .exe files, I always get an error message telling me that the downloaded file is not a valid win32 application. The latest file to do this is the update for zonealarm free version which addresses the problem with Windows security update KB951748. This problem has been going on for months and affects both of my computers equally. Please helppppppppppppp!

Answer:Not a valid win 32 application when trying to download and install .exe files

Since you have two different computers -- and I assume they both do not have Zone Alarm and that update (I'd uninstall both if they do) -- try connecting one directly to the modem, bypassing the router.

Test with an alternate cable as well if you can.

I have also seen this problem on older NForce motherboards with the onboard Nvidia firewall installed (Network Access Manager).

I am looking for a Windows application that would enable me to quickly extract bulk emails from an IMAP server. I trying to help a friend who has 15000+ emails in two separate folders on her IMAP server. She uses Outlook, which is running incredibly slow due to the quantity of emails on the IMAP server. Whenever I try to archive the emails, Outlook freezes, so I'm pretty much looking for an application designed to just fetch and delete emails from an IMAP server.

Anyhow have any suggestions? Feel free to leave questions if my problem is not clear.


- Clear

Answer:Download IMAP Emails Fast Application?

Use mulberry if you want super fast handling and access of IMAP accounts with lots of messages. Some servers will have a fit about mulberry because it opens a zillion connections to the server though, so watch out. You can select messages and save them, but its save feature sucks when trying to save multiple files at once. (Note that mulberry's UI sucks)

Use Sylpheed if you want to backup a folder to an .mbs file. The option is under file -> export to mbox file. It will produce a really good backup. As for speed, with a 7Mbps connection, it will take around 20 minutes per 8000 messages consisting of 25.5MB to fetch the messages and generate the .mbs file. But, it might be faster or slower depending on your system too.

There's Symphony Imap backup, which you can use to backup a complete account. It's not exactly fast, but it handles lots of messages no problem.

If all you want to do is delete some messages, use mulberry. If you want to backup, use Sylpheed.

Thunderbird won't be as fast as mulberry, but it should work fine for accessing lots of messages.

Opera works really good (although not super fast in fetching) with lots of messages. 100000 for example. I usually use Opera with around 20000 messages.

Hello there,
As it says in the title, I've been having this error thrown at me by Norton the past couple of days merely by having my browser open. There's a managed extension that may be involved with it but despite my best efforts I cannot remove it (multiple uninstall/reinstalls, Norton Power Eraser, a reasonably thorough (albeit amateur) purge of any files related to Chrome, and fiddling with Regedit).
Though the problems might not be related, I suspect they are as they both appeared around the same time. I currently have Chrome uninstalled (As it is quite useless) but much prefer using it over Internet Explorer, so any help getting it back would be greatly appreciated.
Windows 7 64bit
Thank you.

Any suggestion ? Thanks What device are you using?
If you're using a Windows Phone 8.1, the native maps app lets you download apps for offline use, under Settings > Applications > maps > download maps > select country.
I'm not sure what you meant by "adding symbols" in conjunction with "create my maps". Did you mean you want to edit the offline map, i.e. creating custom roads? If yes, then there seems to be no map app that allows you to do this, though there is website for that: If you meant adding landmarks and points of interest, then you can do that with the native Windows Phone 8.1 maps app as well. Just hold on any part of the map until a prompt to name that location appears. The neat thing about this is that this would work with Cortana when you want "her" to remind you when you reach that particular location or get departure/arrival/traffic alerts for that location... if you have "her" available and enabled in your region/country.

Did a search on the forum for a similar topic, but didn't find anything relevant.

I've d/loaded the following : (FDM) and did a test on a small applic. Managed to Run the app. onto the PC (Applic. was Upload Manager, approx. 400kb) from FDM. Simple enough.

Before doing that, however, tried to Save it to a CD, by attempt @ right-clicking on file name. But, there's no option to try save it to CD, by electing to ''Send to...'', like one finds in IE . Also, couldn't drag & drop file from FDM to DVD RW Drive (D:)

Had a look through the headings in FDM, and closest I got to was Export option, but it seems to only want to save the file in a .txt format,
which to me implies it won't allow it (i.e. the contents of the file) to Run from the CD thereafter ??

My aim is to be able to save certain Windows Updates (espec. Service Packs which constitute about 400MB's, each) to FDM, and then simply save them to a CD / DVD+RW / memory stick.

[I know I can d/load these MS files via Windows Update directly onto the PC, and have done so many times b4, but want to now try this other option.]

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Recently I have been getting dialog boxes popping up at seemingly random times asking me what to do with a download from stumbleupon called application/octet-stream. I have not clicked on a download link and I don't know what it is trying to download. I have cancelled every time rather than let the download proceed.

I tried to attach a screen capture showing one of the dialog boxes, but I had already uploaded it on a different forum and now it won't upload here.

I am running Win XP sp3, usually use the Firefox browser (ver 9.0.1) and I am often on when this happens. I recently went through the whole malware removal procedure and my system is clean.

Any idea what this is and what I should do about it?

My system web browsers were coming to a complete halt before or sending me to a web search called omiga, I unwittingly added the virus to my system by installing a free program called ''fast video player''. I ran the Norton anti virus full system scan first and later on a quick scan. It picked up and removed some Malware which now allows me to use my browsers without grinding to a halt or being redirected. However I am still getting a pop up that my Norton firewall is detecting as "Web Attack:PUP/Adaware/Fake Application download 4".

Hi guys. I'm a Computer Science student and I do computer repair in my spare time.

I've run into a problem and I'm stumped. Maybe one of you guys will be able to figure this out.

A client came to me with a laptop that has a strange issue. He's been using Vista Service Pack 1 and IE7 and when he downloads any kind of binary file, after the download completes, it tells him the download is corrupt. IE won't allow any ActiveX controls to be downloaded, even after you allow a control to run. It fails silently, with no error message.

First thing I did was clear out the temp files, update him to IE8 and point him towards Firefox. Firefox will download files, but certain files (such as a manual download of the ActiveX control I was looking for) still refuse to run, stating the file is corrupt. I downloaded the file (which is used for's photo album creation) from a different source, and still no go. And this was attempted with both the updated IE8 and Firefox 3.5

OK, so maybe it's bad RAM? I did an extensive test of his RAM and came back with no errors. I scanned his hard drive, (nothing but a few orphaned files), defragmented his drive (was only at 2%), scanned for viruses and malware (finding 4 fairly common malware files), ran SFC scan, scanned and error-checked the registry, uninstalled his out-of-date McAffee that had run out of its subscription, and installed AVG.

AVG refuses to download updates. And this is on my own wired ne... Read more

For whatever reason an error message has popped up several times in recent days. It reads as follows:

NOTICE: You have not completed a scan, so the condition of your registry remains unknown. If your computer has errors in the registry database, it could cause unpredictable or erratic behavior, freezes, or crashes. Would you like to download Registy Cleaner to scan for and correct any registry problems now (recommended)?

I'm not sure what this means, but I presume the recommendation is legitimate. My first thought is that this is some sort of well-disguised advertisement, but I don't really believe so. Now that I think about it, it seems that I did interrupt a scan recently, so I'm wondering if that is why I keep getting this message. If so, perhaps all I need to do is run another scan through to completion.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone familiar with this error message.

Answer:JavaScript Application error message recommends download of Registry Cleaner.

The User Interface Process Application Block provides a simple yet extensible framework for developing user interface processes. It is designed to abstract the control flow and state management out of the user interface layer into a user interface process layer. This helps you write generic code for the control flow and state management for different applications types (for example, Web and Windows) and helps manage user's tasks in complex scenarios (for example, suspending and resuming stateful tasks).

Hello everyone, This weekend I wanted to re-calibrate the batteries of my X300 (it's running under Windows 7 RC).So I used the Power Manager and run the calibration (full charge - discharge - full charge) and I let the computer.When I came back later, I saw the level of charge was 1% although it was on AC power!OH MY GOD! I was so scared (I thought it wouldn't go under 5%) So I want to know : Is it normal to go so low ? Was Windows wrong ? My batteries are dead ? Today my father told me that he thought the autonomy has decreased  

Answer:Do batteries go to 1% during calibration ?

Hi blaq! The battery calibration process (full charge - discharge - full charge) takes several hours. It sounds like you came back to your X300 when it was half way through the process i.e. the battery was fully discharged. This is normal, but it sounds like you may have stopped the calibration process before it completed. I suggest you re-run the calibration.

My most reliable internet source is IE9. One day, I cleaned my keyboard without shutting down my computer. I was still on my email page. Now, whenever I click something, such as something on google, it usually selects an option 1 or 2 above or below. It doesn't select the correct one. Also, when i try to click something, i have to right click and press open. This is very Inconvenient. I ignored it for a while, but now I can't even register for certain programs. When it has those selecting options, it wouldn't let me open the options. When i finally did, selecting it only brought me back up to my name! Whenever i press backspace, it brings me to the previous page.

Answer:I have calibration issues only in IE9

So when you use another browser, everything is normal ?

Someone with more knowledge may opine, but I would begin by resetting IE9. Go to Internet Options/Advanced/Reset and/or uninstall and reinstall IE9.

On past systems I've used a Monaco Optix colorimeter for display calibration and profiling, however a recent email from their tech support tells me this won't be an option in the near future.

We still do not have support for Vista 64 bit operation. We do have a technically unsupported procedure for using Optix in a Vista 32 bit operating system, and you can find this on our webpage support pages for Optix.

I understand that you have an urgent need to do calibration in Vista 64 bit, but we don't have any ETA for this operating system and Optix compatibility.

My apologies that we don't have any better news for you at this time.

Anyone know of a colorimeter/calibration&profiling system that works with Vista 64?

Hello all, I've found many great tips here! I can't seem to get the touchscreen to calibrate correctly no matter what I do.  I've read some tips on the forum here with regards to this, but still no luck (with a dagi stylus or even finger touch). It's especially a problem when trying to read an ebook in the tablet position.  I mostly have problems at the edge of the screen (especially scrolling and closing a window).  When trying to close a full-size window, it picks up the pressure well below and to the left of the box to close. This happens in both tablet and "laptop" modes.  The touch capabilities work much better towards the center of the screen.  I did a fresh install to Home Premium, but I recall having some problems from the factory install too. I'de hate to RMA it!  Any advice on this?   I've tried the calibration thing many times (even placing the stylus under the rim of the screen fixture to hit the calibration points). Anybody know how long I'll be without my s10-3t if I do RMA it?  :-(  Maybe I'll just get an IPad... Thanks much!

Hi all - just got my s10-3t yesterday and am already addicted.2GB upgrade, Win7,a lot of cleaning up, running very nicely. I've messed something up though, and can't figure out how to fix it.Installed SimpleTap, and calibrated my touchscreeen in netbook mode. Went into tablet mode and the display was really messed up - uninstalled SimpleTap and issue was solved.Now I have found that the touchscreen calibration is WAY off in tablet mode - I can't even grab the scroll bars at the edge of the screen (center of screen is better but inaccurate - no touch at all on outer 3/8" of the screen)Calibration on netbook mode is excellent. Any suggestions? I did try to recalibrate twice, no luck. I think it's a calibration issue not a SimpleTap

Answer:Calibration issues s10-3t

The first time I calibrated there were two sets of crosshairs and I couldn't get to the outside set so did the inside.  Now it always come up with the inner set only. I also find it difficult to get my screen to react at the edges.  I usually hid my taskbar but I can't get it with my finger, have to open enough to use the touchpad. I'm thinking it just isn't sensitive on the edges.

Question: Calibration Issue

Hello, I've been dealing with this issue for quite a few months now and I thought it was about time I got it sorted out.

See I recently purchased a laptop, after previously owning a PC for 4 years. I still own my PC but only use it for editing images on Photoshop CS5. After a few days, I transferred some images I had edited on my PC onto my laptop to discover that the colours were completely different. My first thought was that the problem had to be the colour settings on my PC as my laptop had all the default colour settings from when I had purchased it.

After fiddling about with the Brightness & Contrast and Colour Adjustments on my monitor, I decided to give up. I'm unsure of whether this is an issue with the monitors settings or infact settings on my computer but it can be a bit annoying when I spend time editing an image to transfer to my laptop, to find out that the colours are all completely off. I am aware this isn't a Windows Vista problem, but I have a feeling it has to do with the calibration setting I have on a Windows Vista computer system.

I was wondering if anyone could help, any help would be much appreciated! And if you need to know any settings or information about the specific monitor or pc I am using, feel free to ask. Thank you!

(I am using Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 2)

Dell published an article on how to calibrate Li-ion and Ni-MH/NiCad laptop batteries. The article doesn't say anything about charging/discharging 2-4 times. I'd contact Dell again and ask for clarification.

On-the-Go articles | Dell

Maybe Dell has changed its mind on the proper procedure but I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 laptop from around 2006. It still has the original battery and still gives about 2 hours battery life. That may not sound like a lot of time but when brand new it only gave 2.5 hours. From the very beginning all I did was let the battery run down to the pre-determined percentage (all my laptops shut down at 5%) and then let it fully charge back up to 100%. This is he same procedure I've used on all my laptops (Dell, Sony, Acer, Lenovo, and a couple other machines from work.)

 I have this T500 for more than 3 years and barely used the battery - there are just 16 cycles which is almost nothing.Of course there was no need for battery calibration so far.I never dropped the level below 18-20 % and these few times charged up to 90%. Moreover it was kept in the lower drawer of the refrigerator.Finally i got to calibrate it and while it dropped steadily up to 5%, now it lingers at 4% for more than 40 minutes. It is almost weird - the time from 35% to 6% is almost the same with that of 6% to 4% !I have read many things about li on (and other types) battery behavior and there are some threads here if i recall. So I would welcome any feedback and explanation of the mentioned phenomenon... and of others of course.It is a nice opportunity to hear more battery stories in this thread.      

Answer:Battery calibration

Welcome to the community.
As per your concern if your battery has much lesser capacity or does not charge at certain level any longer, you may want to perform a gauge reset on the battery.
Double-click the green "Power Manager" battery icon near the Windows' system clock, usually at the lower-right corner of the screen. If you cannot find this icon, click "Start," "All Programs," "Access IBM" and "Power Manager."Click the "Battery Information" tab at the top.Click "Battery Maintenance."Click "Perform Reset," and then click "Continue" on the confirmation dialog box. This procedure will take at least six hours to complete, and you should not use your ThinkPad during that time. You will be prompted when the battery reset is complete. It will takes more time to complete it.
Note: make sure AC adapter plug in when performing gauge reset, and do not close the system while performing.
