Hi I have just bought a new laptop - and while it is overall pretty good (X1400 graphics chip, Intel core duo 1600MHZ processors 1024MB of RAM 100GB hard drive etc) the one thing I have found that lets it down a little I think is the screen. I am not familiar with LCD screens as I have never previously used them - so I don't know if this is normal - but sometimes (well quite often really) blacks and very dark colours appear a little overexposed and 'washed out'. (Rather like what happens when the contrast is set too high on a CRT screen). Naturally (although what with this being a laptop I don't know if this is normal too) the LCD screen doesn't have any of the traditional controls that are present on CRT screens that allow you to adjust the brightness, contrast, position of the display and so on - so there appears to be no way to trim back on the brightness or contrast to try to get more realistic dark colours. To be fair this is only really evident during some games and movies and particularly dark moments - and providing that an image is nice and bright - it can look very clear and sharp indeed. Any advice and /or tips anyone can offer to help me overcome this issue - or at least to lessen it a little would be very much appreciated.
