Blown out screen - Windows 7 - Ideapad U460

[ Edited ]

I've had this Ideapad U460 for about two months. Yesterday, when I opened the lid, the screen was really blown out. Text is very light against white backgrounds, and all of the graphics are very light. This isn't an issue with the backlight, even when I turn the backlight all the way down everything is still blown out.

 

I went into the Windows 7 color calibration wizard and had to turn the gamma all the way down to get it to look somewhat normal, but after I shut the lid and opened it again, the problem is back.

 

Is this a hardware problem? How do I fix it? It's very hard to use the computer with such a blown out screen.

 

Thanks--

It magically fixed itself today when I opened up my laptop..

 

I will keep this thread in my bookmarks and post a pic if it happens again.

What's DOS?

Re: Blown out screen - Windows 7 - Ideapad U460

This issue happens to me as well. It has happened several times since I got my U460. Each time lasts for a day or two, and 2 or 3 months goes by between incidents.

I couldn't really figure out what to take a picture of, and my camera had trouble focusing on the screen. Suffice it to say everything is lighter than it should be.

Switching between "battery save" mode and normal mode seems to be a trigger, though it can happen without a switch.

I hope this gets resolved. Not a huge issue, but it shouldn't happen.
