Hi guys,
Bought this laptop 3 days ago and noticed light bleeding from the corner of the screen in darker rooms.
Originally bought this from PC World (retailer) and they didn't really seem interested in helping me so I may as well ask you guys for your opinion.
Its a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series (the red and black model)

A:Is this an acceptable amount of bleed?

Only you can answer that - my answer is that a brand-new system should not have that image fault, and should be replaced.

I just purchased a yoga 710 11.6" model and the first one had a good amount of backlight bleed coming through on three corners. Enough that I went in for an exchange. My second unit looks much better but still has a bit of bleeding in the lower left corner. Not really visible in normal tasks, but I notice it on boot up and any dark images/videos especially when viewed in a dark room. Of course it lessens with brightness, but is still there.  Is this acceptable or should I have it exchanged/replaced? I'd hate to do an exchange and get an even worse unit in return. This one isn't thaaaat bad, but I still notice it. The image is also a bit exaggerated from the camera and doesn't look as bad in person. Opinions?

I've just bought a brand new Omen 17 with a 4k screen and replaced it once due to obvious backlight bleed.  The replacement laptop still has pretty obvious backlight bleed.  Do all HP Omen laptops just have this as part of a poor design and therefore should I just get a refund or have I just been unlucky and received two duff items?

Hi, I've had my laptop for just a couple of weeks and have noticed that there is a yellowish corner of the screen. It is only apparent with a black screen. I have a theory that there is extra pressure in the right corner because that's where the thinkpad logo and red light are on the backside.  Anyway, it doesn't bother me; I'm just worried that it might get worse progessively.  I don't really want to have to send it back to China and wait for repairs. But want to go ahead fix it while under warranty if there is a possibility that it will get worse.  ?Is this an acceptable amount of bleeding? (note: the only bleed is in the top right corner. It's definitely bleed because it goes away when I bend the screen ever so slightly. Everything else is glare. )

This laptop is a Best Buy Blue Label, configured for sale exclusively by Best Buy.   The price is right for the included features, but we're very disappointed in HP's QA measures. This unit should never have made it out of the factory. Right out of the box, the display suffers from severe backlight bleeding in both lower corners of the display, so obvious that it's plain for anyone to see. Screen resolution may be 1920 x 1080 Full HD, but Netflix and Amazon HD videos are not as sharp or as bright as the same videos at the same resolution on my 3 year-old 15.4" MacBook Pro Retina Display. Backlit keyboard is either off or on, and on is far too bright, with bright light leaking around the chiclet keys, clearly visable and distracting. We want to like this computer.  We're tempted to simply exchange it for another.  In addition to our MacBook, we have a 13" HP Pavilion dv3510nr bought in 2009 that has been faultless.  But with our new HP Envy demonstrating such an obvious flaw in the display, we wonder what hidden flaws might manifest themselves weeks or months from now if we were to purchase another. This purchase represents a perfect example of why one shouldn't make a purchase of this type from an exclusively online seller. At least, with Best Buy we have a big box store where we can return it.

Hi Interlope,

I was not able to open http://imgur.com/a/rAHFvSeems your issue might be similar to this thread . Check on the image provded .On the sample image glow seems to appear on different angles too.
 - Link to images
 - Link to images
"IPS glow should only be apparent at extreme viewing angles in very dark images or black screens. If it is visible from head on and always in the same spots, it's not IPS glow, it's backlight bleed " .
In normal IPS display, such glow usually is mimimal and be lesser than an inch.
Else call in tech support for repair especially if return is not an option.
 
Hope this helped you in your decision.

Since I got my laptop there has been a problem with screen backlight bleed in the bottom left-hand corner of the display. It is clearly noticeable when in a dark environment, showing dark content on the screen or when the screen brightness is turned up high, however, it is not that noticeable in normal use. Lenovo has offered a repair but I am interested in hearing whether people think this is worth it. I am worried that after the inconevience of backing up all my data and sending my laptop away, the repair will not make much difference to the issue, as it affects nearly all laptops so some degree. Does anyone have any experience with getting this kind of issue repaired and if so was it worth it?

Hi all, I've been having problems with backlight bleed on my 720s 13" (i7 8th gen, UHD Glossy display) that I bought directly from Lenovo. There's a "moderate amount" of bleeding from the top and bottom corners on the left side of the machine. I called Lenovo and they sent me a replacement within a few days, but the replacement machine was unfortunately even worse. I'm curious if this is a well-known issue with QC on IdeaPad machines with IPS displays right now? I feel like getting two bad units can't just be bad luck... Also, will Lenovo CS send me another (3rd total) unit if I send one of these back? I can't go without a laptop because of work, but I really don't want to be stuck with this issue on a brand new laptop with a "premium" display. Thanks in advance!

Hello, everyone! I just received my new Lenovo Y700, and overall, I love it!But there is a thing that's bugging me: backlight bleed/ips glare. While working on the laptop, or even watching movies (watched Star Trek Beyond), it doesn't seem to bother me, I don't really notice it. But if if there is a full black screen and i stare at it, yeah. I can see the darn bleed. Is this much bleed normal? Should I return it and get another one (hopefully I will be more lucky)? Or do ALL of the IPS panels out there have such issues, and i better stick with this one? I am attaching screenshots taken in full darkness, at 100% brightness. (N.B., in reality it doesn't look SO bad as on camera, idk why; also, if i set it to 75% brightness its A LOT less visible). One more thing: Can any of you that have this model attach some pictures under the same conditions, so I can at least compare?  Thanks a million!

Hello all,just a quick enquiry to figure out if I have to send the laptop in for repairs: Since yesterday my display remains illuminated in the right hand corner after the laptop is switched off (see picture).I've taken out the battery to cut the power supply (no use, it has a second internal battery) and rebooted but that didn't affect this issue. When the laptop is turned on the screen works perfectly fine. I assume the hardware is broken - has anybody experienced something similar? I can't find any online support by Lenovo (submitting tickets is currently offline). Grateful for any advice! EDIT: I googled a bit more - it's a backlight bleed. An issue known for T450s, possibly caused by humidity. Does anybody have some ideas for fixes, or is replacement the only option?

I'm in need of a second tech opinion here.

A family member gave me a HP Pavilion a1000 desktop PC with an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+ to mess around with and make into an auxiliary machine to have laying around.

Without getting into more technical details than necessary the machine came with
1Gb of PC3300 RAM (it's correct factory default for the processor installed) I just happen to have
4Gb of PC2700 RAM laying around and I tested the machine and it appears to work just fine with the slower RAM.


The Question Is...

Would you rather have 1Gb of
PC3300 RAM or
4Gb of PC2700 RAM installed on a machine?
Am I a fool to go with the slower speed RAM?  Why?


The system seems much faster with the larger amount of slower memory (?)  How much really is the difference in the RAM speed jump between PC3300 and PC2700 RAM?   Would it be a significantly crippling
difference or not so much?

Further, I tried adding the 2 1Gb PC2700 memory to the 2 512Mb PC3300 memory and the system reports it all
is running as PC2700 (I was hoping that the speed could be split between banks but I guess not - yea, I already knew that) So I just added the 1Gb PC2700 memory to all four banks and I'm calling it a night. Am I sadly mistaken in some respect to prefer the
4Gb slower RAM here?
If it matters then I'm using the machine with Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3 installed though I do intend upon giving Windows 10 a try with this machine

My sister dropped her T410 and cracked the LCD screen, which clearly was not covered under the basic warranty.  The $950 quote for repair was a little steep (basically the cost of the laptop) so we decided to try a repair ourselves.  I replaced the LCD screen with a model suggested by the Lenovo rep.  With the new screen in place, the backlight doesn't function at all (can see information on the screen with a flashlight but otherwise nothing).  I also put the old screen back in (which previously was backlit despite being cracked) and observed the same problem.  I made sure the LCD cable was seated firmly at both ends. Considering things as they stand now, my question is about the best route to take from here.  As I understand it, since the LED backlight is powered by the system board, we either buy a new system board or use this laptop as a "desktop" attached to a standalone monitor.  Replacing the LED sub card seems questionable for this particular problem (saw another post here with that conclusion).  We could replace the LCD cable, but it seems to me more likely that the fuse on the motherboard is blown.  If it comes down to motherboard vs. desktop use, we'll probably avoid the motherboard replacement since it is somewhat expensive. Am I missing any obvious ideas?  Should I consider replacing the LCD cable more seriously?  Is the LED sub card more relevant to the LCD/backlight than I think?  I'm hoping t...

New to the forum so Hello everyone.

I understand how to turn down the level of brightness through backlight control but how do I decrease the level even further? The slider in the brightness bar is all the way down (left) yet at nights the light from backlights are too bright!

Couldn't someone please help me out?

Dimming is an option but it still doesn't decrease backlight.

A:Backlight - Decreasing backlight Level more

let's see: there should be backlight and brightness adjustments on the monitor, plus contrast which does affect final light output somehow, plus all those except backlight should be duplicated inside video drivers on your computer and gamma on top of that. If it's a laptop then there should be some combination of Function key and arrows to adjust backlight directly. If you can't get the screen dark enough with all those controls, could be something wrong. If controls are too limited and your environment is totally dark then buy anti glare screen protector, that usually cuts the light coming out probably at least by half.

A:Is this an acceptable Laptop?

It will run very slow with only 192MB of RAM. Also, it doesn't come with any operating system or application disks which means if anything is corrupted, you're screwed and would need to spend additional money on a new OS or software.

Laptops that old generally do not have working batteries or batteries with any useful life, so it's unlikely you could use it without it being plugged in.

With only a 10 day replace/exchange warranty, you're out of luck, and money, if something is wrong with it or you don't like it.
