How do I adjust my laptop's contrast?

I've tried everything and looking online everywhere. I need my contrast adjusted and there are no options to do so. All "answers" I have received are to adjust brightness... I need to adjust my contrast on my hp pavilion notebook laptop!!

@Kimmybee

 

Color calibration includes the ability to very / adjust the screen contrast.

 

Control Panel > icon view > Display > Calibrate color

 

Follow the instructions in each pane -- one of the screen sets allows you to adjust the contrast.

How do I adjust my laptop's contrast?

I have already tried that and that does not work. There is a brightness adjustment bar when it tells me to adjust my brightness, but no contrast bars when I'm told to adjust my contrast. It says to adjust contrast using my keyboard and there are no contrast buttons on my keyboard. I have tried pressing fn while adjusting with the brightness buttons and that doesn't work either.

Rats.  That is unfortunate - at least we now have information on one solution you have tried.

 

For the record, I don't think any keyboard has contrast keys -- perhaps one might use the up-down-side arrows as a means to increase / descrease a setting.

 

If you would like the chance to have another Expert answer, please provide the details necessary to clearly identify your computer Product Number and your Operating System.  

 

Telling us what else you have tried would help, too -- "everything" is useful only in context.

As others have noted you can get to the calibrate color setting, but the screen that shows the contrast does not have a sliding bar and it instructs user to use controls to adjust contrast. No such controls exist.

 

Time to return this piece and get a real laptop.

How do I adjust my laptop's contrast?

@Low5Point

 

 

Right-Click on the Desktop > select (as available) your graphics display setup >

Open the display settings and adjust

 

For example,

 

(My) Zbook 17 G3 provides two graphics setups:

Intel(R) HD Graphics P530

NVIDIA Quadro M5000M

 

Intel control

 

Right-click on Desktop > Intel HP Graphics Control Panel > Display > Color Settings

 

Settings are available for Color (all or individual color), Brightness, Contrast, Hue, and Saturation.

 

 

Alternatively,

 

Control Panel > icon view > NVIDIA Control Panel > Adjust Desktop Color Settings

Settings available

How color is set (color channel, brightness, contrast, gamma)

Enhancements (digital vibrance, hue)

 

 

 

What is available on your computer depends on the installed graphics card(s) / chip(s).

 

When you next purchase, (regardless of brand), review what is installed in the computer -- if possible, purchase a computer that you can configure as you desire that includes the higher grade graphics and other features important to you.

That does not exist on my control panel. I don't have a "Display" item listed.

How do I adjust my laptop's contrast?

I know this is an old post but I ran into the same problem recently and have not found a solution that has been posted so thought I'd post one!

 

I have a HP Pavilion Dv6. My problem was that my contrast became so bright, I could barely read text, it seemed so far off. After searching the net, I'm sure you all ran into the same solutions.

 

 - Use the brightness key to turn it down. That only tuened the screen brightness down.

 - Go into settings, recalibrate contrast. Nope, still bright af.

 - Change/reset battery settings. Did not work.

 

All these solutions just played with screen brightness, contrast was always high.

A solution I found that worked 100% by a user burried deep in random chats of Google was so silly that it was overlooked.

 

SOLUTION TIME!!!!....

Unplug your charging cable and plug it back in. Contrast fixed, why? I have no idea.
