x220 VGA external monitor display is yellow

have googled this and found various posts on the net from people with similar issue. I have a new x220 and want to use an external monitor however whatever screen or projector I hook it up to produces a yellow picture on the overhead/monitor. Can anyone tell me if this is a hardware or software fault and if they believe I should return the laptop? Thanks

Hello Anthonyf,

 

It is really sad to know as you have issue with your new laptop.

 

First make sure the display cable is proper as it can the cause of the issue.

Kindly update the video driver and BIOS

 

Download the BIOS from the mentioned below web link.

I am really sorry as you have had this issue.

 

Best Regards,

Tanuj

does the X220 produce the yellowish tint with other external monitor?

Go into your Intel display property, play around with the colour setting and see whether this problem goes away or not.

thanks for suggestions. unfortunately haven't managed to fix the issue so will be forced to return my laptop leaving me without a machine other than an old notebook - not a good situation for the self-employed!
