Default HP g62 screen really sucks

after about a day of using the laptop i noticed that unless i view it at exactly right angle it fades all the colors to really light.

i cant even tell red from white when using graphs

is that sun damage or is it just very crappy screen quality on that laptop?


my old hp laptop from 2005 was way better viewind angle
this is normal view


this is few degrees off

Are the pictures you posted of your 2005 laptop or the g62?

Also, have you just started noticing the problem, or has it been happening for a while?

i found the contrast.brightness settings and it didnt help

theres no optimal setting it seems

i decrease contrast( which is at 50% by default ) and i can see the menus
but it becomes cloudy
i increase brightness and it becomes milky

either way i adjust it still doesnt look good i never seena screen this bad but i dont have another g62 to compare to
