    Windows 8 Display/Screen hurts my eyes


    Hi everyone,

    I recently installed Windows 8 yesterday, and i noticed that the display is not as crisp as it was in Windows 7. It seems to be a bit too strong, not focuses/crisp and when reading text on websites or metro apps, it makes your eyes really hurt as it seems to strain them out.

    Anyone know of a solution? It is a bit hard to explain, but in Windows 7 reading text on websites was easy as it seemed to be more clearer and crisper than compared to Windows 8.

    Anyone else have this issue and know of a way to resolve it? It is making my Windows 8 experience quite bad, to the point of going back to Window 7 (which i do not want, as i like Win8)?

    I have the latest AMD graphics driver for my laptop (HP DV6) which has switchable graphics, and i am using the Intel HD 3000 graphics at the moment. I've also noticed that Windows 8 runs about 3-4C higher than Windows 7.

    You can try the "cleartype text tuner" maybe?

    pyrate, I have already tried that along with Display Calibration, and nothing. The colors are more vivid which is awesome, but my problem remains that the text seems a bit blurry/not crisp, and when looking at the screen it hurts your eyes. I am starting to think it might be an issue with the drivers for Intel HD Graphics 3000, although i have the newest version available.
