    Hey Guys,

    I just installed Bootcamp on my brand new MBP and unlike in OS X were the screen is perfectly calibrated, the screen in windows is very blue and the colors are a bit off compared to the OS X. Is there anyway to match the screen in windows with the one in OS X? I am going to do some work on grahpics work on Windows and I am kinda broke to buy a Spyer2/3 calibrating software.

    Thanks for the Help,
    Sam

    Not positive, but have you tried locating the icc profile used on the Mac, then copy it to the Windows partition and set it to default?

    In case you don't know where the color profiles are on OSX:

    Macintosh HD -> Library -> ColorSync -> Profiles

    Any profiles that were created using the built-in calibration utility will be in the Displays subfolder.

    Thanks,

    The profiles didnßt change a thing. I messed around with the Blue and Green Gamma and contrast in the nvidia console and I got some which seems to work ok for now

    Sam,
