Solved!

My display is washed out. Everything works but the screen display became very light.

hp notebook-17

Received a HP COMPUTER for Christmas. Turned on my computer today and home screen flickered then became "washed out" , very pale.  Checked brightness keys, didn't help.  I can go to other screens but the washed out colors on screen don't change.  As an elderly disabled lady without ANY computer savvy, I don't know where to start and I'm afraid to touch anything.

Thinking of taking it to Best Buy or some place like that but I don't know if they will honor the warranty.  Can anyone give me any bit of advice?  I could call HP  support but I wouldn't even know what were talking about.  Please, can you give me some advice.?

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Please share the product number of the PC to assist you better.

 

Meanwhile:

Check if the issue persists in BIOS screen,

Turn off the computer, press the power button, and then repeatedly press the Esc key until the Startup Menu opens. Press F10 to enter the BIOS Setup page.

If the issue does not persist on the BIOS page try updating the graphics, touchpad drivers and BIOS on the PC to the latest version.

 

Uninstall the graphics driver from device manager and install the latest version of BIOS,touchpad and graphics drivers on the PC using the HP support assistant.

Thank you for your response.  Unfortunately, as I have mentioned in my original message, I am elderly and totally ignorant in the workings of a computer.  This is just not my generation.  Just reading your suggestions totally confused me.  But thank you again for attempting to aid me with this problem.  I must look elseware.
