T480 Screen Issue.

2021-04-14, 18:14 PM



Attached is a side by side of a T480 (Left) and a T490 (right)..


in High Contrast Mode.


Has you can see the left T480 is strangely more bright.. the example is Microsoft Excel... when its not on High Contrast the T480 is more Teal than then usual Excel Green..


I have tried..

- fiddling with the contrast, whether it was Windows, Intel (built-in), or the graphic settings...

- updating/rollback drivers

- Windows update

- Lenovo Patch/System Update/Update Retriever, etc.


It affects two of my T480 laptops but it does not affect anything else that I have... T440, T470, T490s, etc.

Hi JulianIT!

Welcome to community forums

Can you send another photo of both screens of the laptop with the same level of setting so we can see the difference? Have you tried manually installing the BIOS? If not, you reinstall it from here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sg/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t480-type-20l5-20l6/downloads/driver-list/component?name=BIOS%2FUEFI
