My netbook is giving me headaches and sometimes migraines. Help me adjust my display?
I have a new netbook: an Asus Eee PC 1225B
. I've had it about 3 weeks and the display gives me headaches and sometimes even triggers migraines.
I've tried adjusting the brightness, color, contrast, gamma, and color saturations through both Windows 7's tools and AMD's Vision control center. No adjustment that I've made had seemed to help.
Sitting it side-by-side with my old Eee PC (a 1005) that did not give me headaches - the new display looks greener and more washed out. But turning it down and blue up (via the 3 choices AMD gives me - Gamma, Brightness, and Contrast for each color) doesn't help. I can't seem to find the right color balance. Also, text does not look as sharp, despite running Clear Type repeatedly.
What, specifically, should I be tweaking? The display seems extra bright to me, but turning down the brightness alone doesn't fix the issue. None of the pre-installed presets are right either. I've been to plenty of those "help me calibrate my display" websites to no avail. Are there any other programs with presets I can try? I am so tired of tweaking color by color.
