Laptop yellowish despite calibration

Recommended Posts

I have a simple PC laptop and a Spyder 5 express. I realize I should upgrade both or at least the monitor, but I just bought a new lens (sorry not sorry!) so that may have to wait a little bit. I've read every askdamien page about calibration and the only thing I haven't dealt with yet is room lighting. However, I've checked at all times of day and tried recalibrating several times and I can't get the yellow to match my prints. The prints don't have nearly enough yellow compared to my screen. Indeed if I check the numbers for my skin tones the balance is way off but it's not just the skin, it's the whole print. Any possible workarounds for the time being?

Thank you so very much for your reply and I'm sorry I didn't think of that! I calibrated another laptop and the result doesn't look like mine so I guess there's no problem with the Express. If there's something wrong with my graphics card is it a better idea to start thinking about a new laptop rather than a new monitor? Or will a better calibrator be able work around the problem? 

Thanks in advance!
