White is not 'White', it is YELLOW!

I have a problem with the white color in Photoshop CS6, and I know it's not my computer or monitor. Anything white colored or anything for that matter, has a yellow tint to it. What should be white, is yellow. I even tried pasting a image of white on to the canvas, but that also turned yellow. I don't think it's my color settings. I also have Photoshop CS5, but that's fine. White is white. I pasted a screen shot of my computer onto both programs. CS5 is fine, but CS6 is still yellow. I cross referenced my color settings with CS5, making sure they're the same. One thing was different from CS5. The CYMK working space is "U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2". I tried switching it to Photoshop 5 Default CMYK if that could change it to the CS5 default, but nothing changed. Even the color pickers have yellow instead of white. Gradients and Black to Yellow. It's not my computer or monitor. I want to use CS6 for my photo editing needs, but I'll need to use CS5 to do anything that needs normal color. Please help, I want to use CS6, CS6 is so cool, but I don't want yellow, I want white.

Your monitor profile is probably bad. You should recalibrate and make a new one. Preferably with hardware calibration device.

That you haven't calibrated your display and that it appears to be a "standard gamut" monitor means you're probably okay with having your system work at Windows default settings. Click Start, type color in the search box, then click Color Management when it comes up. In the Devices tab, ensure that your monitor is selected in the Device field. Check the [  ] Use my settings for this device box if it is not already checked. If the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile is not showing in the Profiles associate...

The interesting thing about this thread is that the very first reply is the correct one, and is even marked as correct by the OP. But they still keep coming in, and nobody seems to make the connection.Yes, Naktaube, you have a bad display profile, coming either from the Dell "installation" CD or through Windows Update. Either way, the problem is the Dell profile.You're on the right track with "ignore profile". What it does is throw out the Dell profile and replace it with sRGB. You can also do t...

That temporarily disables color management and bypasses the corrupt profile. But it's still corrupt. It doesn't solve the problem. The right way to solve this is to replace the broken profile with a good one.
