    My desktop fans can grind a bit on occasion. I just give the box a whack and it stops. I think that the fan somehow becomes unbalanced and starts to "wobble". Maybe this caused the whole issue? The wobbling fan sent warning signals to the BIOS cooling setup and it overcompensated?

    Who knows, but fans has been quiet now for hours. Very odd.

    For those who are interested in using a custom ICC color profile for their Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro display, here's a copy of mine:

    1. Requires the BIOS update for the "lenovo yellow" correction.
    2. Do not use adaptive brightness (it varies the brightness, rendering the colors differently).
    3. Set the brightness to 70% (assuming all displays are close to mine in specs; this is the setting at which I calibrated).
    4. Copy the file into c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color.

    If you have questions on how to implement the profile, see this awesome link: Display Calibration for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1/

    Thanks! How does this effect battery life?

    Will this affect anything at all? How does the color look? Pictures showing original verses your own version?

    The effect was subtle, but it was there. I can see it impacting the color of the background as Windows loads. The result is more neutral, as it should be.

    For the record, I'm a calibration freak... as I do photography editing.

    The color profile has no impact on running any software.

    Would there be any way to return back to the default if I didn't like the custom settings?

    Thanks for the info, I downloaded this program as well. Something curious that i noticed was that it lists Intel HD graphics 4600. I was not even aware that there was such a thing. I thought it was 4400. Is this an error? Or does the Y2P really have Intel 4600? I thought that the new Intel graphics were either 4400, 5000, 5100. Am I wrong?

    Thanks for your ICC profile. How did you generate it? Did you use a colorimeter or just your eyes? Hadn't time to try it yet, but definitely will.

    So we just go into Color Management and select this profile as the Device Profile and that's it? Do we have to reboot or anything else?

    In the very moment you select this profile as default profile for your screen you should see an immediate change of colours. Not much, but kind of warmer than default. Copying the file to system folder is not necessary, just click it and it will install automatically there.
