Default Monitor Calibration

Hi,

Her is a link to a target grey scale.

Adjust your brightness and contrast so that you can see all the shades.

But this will only sort out your tonal range.

As far as colour is concerned probably the best gear to use is the Gretag Mcbeth Eye 1. Gretag is now part of XRite so the product name will have changed.

This is the link for monitor only calibration

This link is the item that does monitors, projectors and printers.

There are other issues, especially with lap tops and 'flat' screens LCD TFT monitors, that is viewing angle, the gamma of the screen alter considerably with the angle of view, so try to adopt a 'standard' angle that allows you to see all shades of the target grey scale.
