Error 1168: Calibration Data not found

I just installed Spyder2 on a new computer after my old one proved too slow to put up with any longer. I am using the same LCD monitor that was attached to the old computer, but the Spyder2 software keeps giving me Error 1168: no calibration data found in the sRGB Color Space Profile... When I look in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\spool\drivers\color, I see the "1-Plug and Play Monitor" as well as the "sRGB Color Space Profile." So, what am I missing here?

1 Answer



You have to put the file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\spool\drivers\color\spyder2express.icm into display properties (click right on the desktop, select "properties", parametres, click on button "advanced" and tab "color profiles"). I use a french OS, so words may be different.

How to Fix Error Code 1168 on Webroot Internet Security plus Program?


I would point you to this thread about the error code ..

My old computer is no longer in use and went out and brought this computer lost all my data from old computer. HOW DO I install my Norton account on this one. I have tried but could not install it.

Hello Betty, In order to change your norton subscription from one account to another, you need to transfer your license to your new device. You can do so by following the instructions at this URL: How to transfer your license to new device

Let me know if you run into issues, I have gone through this before on another account, however I found the process pretty simple.

If the issue is with installing norton itself, post the error you receive and we can look into why it shows that way.

HP G71-349WM Laptop Boot up Problems

there are many LEVELS of OS repair modes.
one is startup files bad, and fix that.
others are refresh.
and last full install.
the HP site covers how to do all that.
HDD not found is usual just that. bad HDD.
ever listen to one, if silent its DEAD, HDD, not SSDs.
One can remove the HDD, and put it in a eSATA enclosure
and plug it in to any PC modern has eSata, and see if data can be recovered. this is best way 1. or just plug it in to a good system.
Best is Desktop as those can have up to 8 drives installed ,
like my ASUS has. (actually more on mine)
That covers the topic DATA, recovery, 101.
now the cure.
buy a new SSD and then do a fresh install with HP media kit
then copy data from old drive, (if not dead) to new drive.
SOP, standard op. procedures. all.

Windows scans the HDD< for the DRIVER busy line to be not busy
if the drive is dead , it can set this line (all do dead) to true,.
busy forever, (aka READY) and is NOT ready.

when THE OS sees it in that logic state, it can not access it at all.
all it can do in that state is see name of HDD and model.
if super dead, it reads nothing... no Pnp DATA, zero.
and that is a totally dead drive.

one way to prove this is put the HDD in another system.
or run a live linux boot CD and see , yup its dead
or run linux partition tools, yup dead.
or windows 10 PE, boot CD
links to all that are here.

How do i transfer data from windows 98 formatted drives 2 xp ones

Set up your old drive as a slave and copy the data. Good luck.

Picture not as good as i expected

First, did the satellite company install an HD receiver? Second, are you using either component or HDMI cables from receiver to TV?  Still there are two factors that would produce your problem.  1. Color calibration 2. Signal strength
Proper color calibration is what makes SD actually GOOD on HDTVs. Low signal strength will create  a slow data situation. Slow data will not provide enough information per second for the TV to display a complete, error free picture so your TV has to interpolate or "guess" what colors should go in the pixels that it didn't get the data for.    

Error all the time

Several ways to attack this problem
Sounds like you have some way-outdated drivers.
Try right clicking each USB device in Hardware Manager, and select update. This MAY help
Download and install a Driver Finder program such as Driver Detective, then update all your drivers.

Try un-installing the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only, then shutdown and restart. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
If that does not work run install program again.
