Thinkpad Edge Display has really bad contrast

My new Thinkpad Edge has terrible contrast.  There is no way to adjust it.  I looks a little better if I turn the gamma all the way down in Windows 7, then a bit more in the ATI Control Center.  However it's just not acceptable.  Its really the worst display I've had to use.  Do you think I have a defective unit or are all the Edge panels like this?  I haven't called support yet but plan to.

Re: Thinkpad Edge Display has really bad contrast

Hello mate,

 

Have you got a matte or a glossy screen ?

I have a matte screen, but what would that have to do with it?  My old T41 had a matte screen and the display was great.  Thanks.

Re: Thinkpad Edge Display has really bad contrast

Did anyone ever find a solution to this issue? I can't find anything online, anywhere?

As above, I've changed the Gamma settings via Control Panel etc etc... very little change.

There are no Contrast buttons on the laptop, only brightness, so the contrast stays far too high.

Anyone there know of a fix?

The display is junk.  The gamma adjust in the graphics settings is all you can do.
