Hello guys! i am new on here so welcome me! hehe!

I have just bought a samsung LED SyncMaster S22D390Q monitor and am loving it's design, but not its color reproduction. colors/fonts look washed out/foggy/fuzzy! i cant even read anything properly as it make my eyes hurt. at first i thought the monitor was defective, but then i have tried it with my friend's laptop and it works perfectly. all the colors are displayed accurately.

I have tried fine tuning sharpness/contrast/brightness and the problem still persists. Does anyone out there know how i could fix this?
thanks in advance.

Hmmm, what kind of video card do you have? Is it different from your friend's? Could be drivers or settings with the video adapter.

With Intel HD graphics you should have below GUI for settings if current drivers installed. When you right click on desktop do you get a graphics options pull down?
