Default monitor calibration

can someone point me in the direction of a monitor calibration guide? my ben-q e2400hd has horrible out-of-the-box settings and I'm having a hard time tweaking it.

Though to do it accurately, you'll have to buy a colorimeter.

Doesn't Windows 7 have a color correction wizard in the control panel?

Go to color management/advanced/calibrate.
