Oh shit!!!!!!

Ok, that might explain a lot.

Is there a HDMI port in the back of your computer?  Your real computer, I mean.

Yes, and I have plugged a HDMI cable in and the monitor says hdmi not connected. It recognised the other cable  as I had the screem set to hdmi and not vga

No, it was hdmi on one end and a screw in type, like a vga on the other end.  The screen was  set to hdmi and it worked.  I have now changed the cable to hdmi in both  ends, but the screen isn't  recognising it.

Keep trying.  It's REALLY important that you have no VGA pins involved in this.

Oh!  That's DVI, not VGA.  That's absolutely fine.

But you'll need a hdmi-to-hdmi cable to test your screen with your laptop.

The laptop calibration gave really poor results. 

I did another calibration on my screen and have it to a point that I can work with.  It is still saturated, but I do not think I am going to get it right.

I am thinking of contacting X-rite and see if they have any suggestions.

the pictures were dark, colours were wrong, i just couldn't get a good result.  I was don't have photoshop on the laptop, but I do have bridge, and I was viewing the photos through bridge.

Yes.  I used different settings, even did it with lights on and lights off.

Yep.  and I do not think that laptop is a good quality laptop, it was only a cheapie.  I tend not to use it for any photography work.
