I have an HP dv7-6b55dx laptop with Windows 7 home Premium 64 bit, which I bought new around Christmas of 2011. It has a big 17.3" screen with a max resolution of 1600x900. I have seldom used it because the colors on the display are so oversaturated that it hurts my eyes. But my old XP laptop has bit the dust so I'm stuck with this one. I did send it back to HP shortly after buying, thinking I'd gotten a lemon. But they insist that there's nothing wrong with it.
I'm not very savvy with Windows 7 yet, and have not been able to find out if the color issue is an problem with HP or a quirk with Windows 7.
Is there a way I can tone down the colors so they look more natural? Right now reds and yellows are like in your face reds and yellows. And some shades of blue look more like purple. I like to do graphic work. But the overstautated colors make that nearly impossible.
Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
