my video card went out - my red or orang is PINK

Specs: Windows 10
I bought a new card, NVIDIA,I don't know how to setup the new Color Profile. Replacing the card did not solve the color issue, and several people had said I need to calibrate again with the new card.
I have been using the same general Color Profile for 8-10 years. I've used 3 different monitors with this profile, and have never needed to recalibrate or change my color profile.
I've recalibrated since I got the new video card, & I'm getting closer. But my RED and ORANGE both are lighter than they should be. It might be bothering some other colors too, but if so it's not bad enough to concern me.
I'm going to calibrate again with the new video card, but I don't know if it matters which of my Monitors I have showing in the Device tab of Color Mgmt during calibration. I might be inter-changing my 2 monitors depending on what I'm doing.
Also, when I finish calibrating, and on the main Device tab of Color Mgmt there is a Profiles button..... I don't know if I need to take any of those actions to complete the setup of the profile.
I have 2 monitors, but not using both at once. I bought one because I thought it was dead. Turns out it was another BAD video card.....
That's why I said I don't know which monitor I should have displaying on the Device Tab when I calibrate. I'm the only user, plus Admin so I will be making this profile the system default - again. This general .icm file that is being used for my profile is also the system default on my laptop, also running Win 10 64 bit. A friend of mine also has the same .icm file for her system default profile. So I figure I should keep this one I've been using with good sucess for years. Thank you.

There's a few problems with your post - you didn't provide your system specs, you didn't provide any info about your video card or monitors, & you posted in the Digital Photo forum. The last one can be corrected by one of the moderators but you'll need to address the other two.

Have you looked at the profile using both your monitors? The issue could be the monitor.
