Monitor calibration - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

My photos, when put on the web, look correct on one computer and too dark on another. Is there a way to calibrate the colors, contrast and brightness on my monitor? Thanks Monty...

    Default Monitor calibration

    I hope someone knows the answer to this one:

    I gamma-calibrated my monitor and started getting inkjet printouts that
    match what I see on-screen in Photoshop 7. That's great, but it doesn't
    appear to be good for all my other programs. I'm seeing washed-out or
    unexpected colors in CorelDraw 11, Internet Explorer (even my own website),
    etc. PMS color chips don't match on-screen PMS colors either.

    What do I need to do to see accurate and reliable colors all the time? HELP!

    I reset my gamma to 2.2 (thanks to Madsen's link to Norman Koren's site) and
    all is well again.

    Monty, check this out. Helped me a lot:

    What was your monitors gamma value before then?
    A gamma of around 2.2 is what most monitors are build to, AFAIK.

    I used Photoshop's monitor calibrator. My new flat screen came with a much better calibrator but I must remove the Photoshop one. How does one do this?
