New Syncmaster LED Monitor colors destroyed

I recently bought new Samsung SyncMaster S22B300B. Its colors were awesome. To play with its settings comfortably using mouse, I installed Samsung MagicTune (version 4.0.12 on Windows 7 32 bit). There are two calibration options in it. MagicWizard, and Color Calibrtaion. I ran them both and damn.
Now it looks even uglier then those cheap hp LCD monitors in my computer lab. Not even close to any laptop screen. Either it is too bright that I can not see the white boxes (grey levels) from 244-254 http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/white.php or too dark to distinguish 1-15 http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php when I calibrate colors/gamma using MagicTune
colors either look like this
or both extreme black and white levels are invisible at a time.
I thought these calibration settings are stored in windows, I attached this monitor to the laptop and it gave the same result. Resetting monitor settings did nothing after this MagicWizard thing. It destroyed its beautiful colors. Now the clouds look plain white where shades are low. Looks like those settings are stored in monitor permanently.
Is there anyway to hard reset? To take all the settings back?
I asked this question here as well
