So I just received my gaming laptop today in the morning, and after about 5-6 hours of transferring data from my old laptop, the my screen decided to suddenly... break. Well not really break...

I can't really explain what happened, so here:

The light is clear and it appears to be brighter when on a white screen. It's quite annoying to look at.

Any idea what happened? Should I use my warranty to get it fixed?

That white blob in the bottom right? Yes, I'd send that back.

Not sure. It could be a driver issue so look for the most recent Intel and nvidia drivers.

If that does not work, then call Lenovo for a RMA.

What do you mean "look for the most recent intel and nvidia drivers" ? I'm clueless haha. I have Intel core i7 and dual nvidia geforce graphics.

Go to Intel's website and download the most recent drivers Intel HD graphics drivers. Go to nVidia's website and download the most recent drivers for the laptop version of the GT 7xx series graphics chip/card.

Once downloaded, simply install them.

I apologize in advance for reviving a dead thread, but this is the only other case of the same problem that I am having.... I updated my graphics drivers as suggested, but the problem wasn't fixed. I have had my computer for about a month and the screen looks similar. Original poster, what was your course of action, and have you had the problem fixed?
