does this profile color work only on this screen. I broke mine and ordered a replacement, however i go a b156hw01 v3screen, which reading from its description , has only 60% color gamut. Will i be able to appply a clor profile onthis screen and attend better results, or is it junk and i must order my screen from another supplier?

While you should be able to apply it, it's basically the wrong profile for your LCD, so you're not going to get anywhere near the same results (except by sheer coincidence). You're also not going to get more color gamut by calibration; in fact, you'll probably reduce it for the sake of accuracy (which the wrong profile doesn't even give you).
Try Windows' built-in color calibration wizard (rough approximation). A better tool might be:

Thanks to querty for sharing his profiles!
I know this topic is very old, but maybe there's still someone following it who could explain wether there is a problem with my configuration or this repesents the correct outcome of the calibration. When I set up the first profile dispcalGUI ThinkPad Display 1920 2012-04-30 D6500 2.2 HQ XYZLUT I get a very weird looking Granger color chart in Photoshop. This only happens with the LUT version, other versions don't produce this speckled appearance. See:

I arrived on this thread very very late. Does anyone have qwerty's ICM profile and able to share? I can't get to the original dropbox links.

I don't have them, but as alternative you can try some of the profiles from this link: click me! (it's in German but you can see the LCD models for which the profiles are available)
I hope this helps...

Thank you. I have tried the profiles and found one that works. The result is heart melting. As an Adobe Lightroom user on top of W520, I'm glad I found this thread.
