    Corrupt color profiles in Photoshop

      Dell SE178WFP G2.2 D65 appears to be defective. How do I fix it? I have downloaded anew profile but there is no change.

          Manufacturer monitor profiles are surprisingly often defective and useless. One could ask why they bother since they can't get it right. I don't know the answer.

           

          These profiles get installed along with "monitor drivers" (which you don't need anyway) - or through Windows Update.

           

          Just replace it with sRGB IEC61966-2.1. Relaunch Photoshop when done so that it can load the new profile at startup:

          The real fix is to use a calibrator to make a new custom profile. But if you don't have one, sRGB will be close enough for most people.
