Display too bright

HP Pavilion g7-2292nr Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just upgraded to Widows 10 from 8.1 and the display seems to be too bright or something.  For example, when I use Microsoft Word 2013 the characters seem to be not as dark.  If I bold them they are find.  I use two monitor with this laptop and if I put my word document on my other monitor the characters are perfect. How do I fix this?  Thank you

Display too bright

Hello @sheilabroderick,

 

Welcome back to the HP Forums!

 

I read your post about the display being too bright on your Pavilion g7-2292nr notebook since upgrading to Windows 10 and wanted to reach out to you.

 

If you haven't already, you should ensure all of the graphics drivers are up to date. This document will guide you through updating the drivers using Windows updates and the device manager. You may also find reverting the drivers back to a previous version can help.

 

Please get back to me how this goes. To show that you like, or are thankful of my post, kindly click the Thumbs up below.

 

Thanks!

Yes, I have all the current drivers.  HP hooked up to my computer and verified before they upgraded to Windows 10.

Display too bright

Hi @sheilabroderick,

 

Thanks for getting back to me on the situation.

 

Since it seemed you did an automatic update of the drivers previously, you can try updating the display adapter driver by doing the following:

 

- Go to settings

- Select display (may be listed under system)

- Click Advanced display settings at the bottom

- Display adapter properties

- Click the properties button

- Select the Driver tab

- Click on Update driver

 

The same screen that allows you to update the driver may also allow you to Roll Back Driver which would take it back to a previous version. I have seen some situations where an older driver will resolve this issue.

 

If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help.

 

Thanks!

I updated the driver but it did not seem to make a difference.  I also went into System Display and adjusted the brightness level and used ClearType Text.  tried to use Display Color Calibration and received an error.  Said An error occurred while display color calibration was preparing to calibrate the selected display.  Unspecified error.
