I recently bought an X-Rite i1 Display Pro that I used to calibrate my notebook. I had some problems with the calibration, but it turned out that my settings were not perfect and in the end I managed to achieve a good calibration. I'm mentioning this because the following problem might be about calibration settings too (I can't find a solution though).
Every time my notebook loads Windows 8, there is a process that automatically load the ICC profile I saved during the calibration, which sets up the correct colors. When I start to work with my calibrated screen and open a picture with "Windows Preview", the picture is eventually displayed with an insane amount of contrast. If I click onto "full screen" it would then show the same picture with totally wrong colors.
If I use Lightroom or Photoshop to open that very picture, the colors are correct and I also found out that if I softproof the image using different profiles, the results are equal to those shown in "Windows Preview".
As background you should know that I am using a notebook with a dedicated graphic card (and its own control panel), but I am currently letting Windows overtake all the color correction settings (there is also an option to let the graphic card control panel do that).
I also found out that in Windows' control panel there is an option to manage ICC profiles, but I couldn't find a way to set correctly.
Could you guys please help?
