I have an iMac G5, running 10.4.2 and have some printing issues....which call for me to calibrate my display. When I run the utility the proflie of my display cannot be found. A call to AppleCare says that my only recourse it to run an archive and reinstall...too drastic for me...is there any other solution?

I found that my problem at least was partially fixed by a simple reboot - it was to do with fast user switching erasing the display profile. There is some more information here http://www.latext.com/pm/comments/M15330_1_0C/. After a reboot I was able to recalibrate my display. In fact I came a across a very useful utility called SuperCal http://www.bergdesign.com/supercal/ which is much more powerful and easier to use than the standard Apple calibration utility.
