strange laptop screen
« on: June 18, 2012, 03:15:28 pm »
IDK how to describe it but i'll be on the laptop doing nothing in particular and randomly the screen will slowly (in steps not all of a sudden) start to loose brightness (as if you where turning the brightness down) but the colors (at the same rate) begin to get brighter/whiter until the piont where what used to be gray is now really white, purple is like bright-pink, etc.  I can only fix it by closing the laptop and re-opening it then its fine, none of the settings are changed before or after this happens.  I'm not too worried about it because I can sorta fix it, but i guess whats grinding my gears is I don't have a clue whats causing it, any ideas?  Oh it's a 16:9 HD LED LCD screen if that helps.

well... recently something similar happened to me: it got much worse and then it gained a single word to describe it: trash.

I have had a similar issue on my netbook. It might be related to your bios, so check for an update. Also be sure you got the correct graphics driver.

I had a similar issue where it was like someone turned the color and contrast extremely high and the screen just looked funky. Mine would go away on it's own though...
