Lenovo X1 Extreme Gen 2 Screen Edge dark gradient

2020-01-24, 1:43 AM

Hello, I just recently bought a new X1E and the display is really bugging me.

 

First, the colours were way too warm, but I was able to fix it through colour calibration. However, I still notice that the edges of my screen have a dark gradient that gets darker towards the bezel and begins maybe 1.5 to 2 inches away from the edge. Is this normal? I have the 15.6FHD IPS AG 500N display.

Solved! See the solution

For anyone who comes across this looking for a solution:

 

A software problem was ruled out:

No difference between hybrid and discrete graphics

External monitor worked fine

Drivers all up-to-date

 

The screen still had a yellow tint to it without night light/vantage eyecare and darkening around the screen. (No pictures because I don't have a camera that actually let's me show it).

 

Support said I would have to mail it in to have the display replaced, but I was within my return window and opted to return it instead.
