I've got problem with screen in my lenovo Y700 laptop:
1. screen is not bright enough (brightness set to maximum by Fn+->) in comparison with connected lcd monitor to the laptop
2. white colors are not actually white, but they seem a little yellowish (huge difference in comparison with connected lcd monitor to the laptop)
For now I don't have possiblity of taking photo, but I'll attach it soon.
I tried dowgrading(to 10.18.15.4271)/updating intel hd drivers, updating nvidia drivers, turning off intel hd graphics, updating bios with no effect.
When I turn off intel from device manager I cannot open nvidia control panel (message appears that it coudn't find any connected monitor)

Hi janekmichas ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
When did the issue started ? Would that be eversince you first had it ?
(for possibility of a system restore to jump back to previous date )
Since you have tried both BIOS and drivers , and I assume that you also tried calibrating colors (rightclick on desktop, graphics properties -> display -> color settings) or on Lenovo Settings ,
Would you also try disable adaptive brightness ,
Any difference if you press on Fn + Esc or changing power option to full performance instead of conservation mode.
Finally since external monitor is ok , best to isolate if LCD / LCD cable is having the problem is to check on the BIOS (turn off and use the Novo Button to turn on and choose bios set up) and compare the display .
If you can boot the pc using another bootable device like rescue media .
For the same issue after trying those steps would likely be a hardware problem and you may need to call in tech support for the fix. Update us how things go.

This is actually not a software problem, but in fact due to the Anti-glare screen protector.
People online have reported that they took off the anti-glare and under is a nice glossy screen where the colors pop and brightness is normal again.
Antiglare protectors do tend to decrease brightness and add a certain tint so not to straign your eyes.
i prefer safety of my eyes, but i am really considering removing the antiglare film
