Yesterday, I used the Monaco Optix Xr software/calibrater and made a profile for my CRT monitor. I used the "calibrate and profile" option. I set the temp to 6500K (CRT default is 9300K) and the gamma to 2.2. Everything seemed to go smoothly. The monaco profile showed up as the default profile under the color management tab in windows XP. Then I restarted my computer to see how I did.

Well, to my surprise, none of the colors have changed. I mean they are exactly the same. The only difference is that the monitor screen is quite a bit brighter now. Not washed out, but heading that way. So now I am left wondering if I managed to do something wrong.

I did notice that there are three screen brightness changes when I start up Windows XP. The original screen is fairly bright. Then the pop up tells me that Monacogamma is loading and the screen goes a little darker (which seems to match my prints). There is a third change where the screen goes bright again just like it was initially when XP started. I only expected two changes, the first one being the original radeon 9250 video card settings and the second one being the Monacogamma settings that result from the LUT. Am I mistaken?

Shouldn't I see some type of color change? Am i overlooking something?
