Lenovo W530 LCD green tint


Jan 20, 2011
I got my LCD replaced by Lenovo and the new LCD has a green tint to it. Everything seems slightly green. It is subtle though, so I'm not sure if they will care if I complain about it.

What is the cause of this? Is it just a software setting or is it a hardware issue?

This is a Lenovo W530.

If it was just replaced chances are the cable that connects the LCD to the motherboard is loose. If you also connect an external monitor and if you find it definitely different that could mean that it's a hardware problem. I would suggest contacting Lenovo for another check of the LCD. Before sending it in for a repair do also a clean install of the graphics card driver.
- Go to Device Manager and uninstall the graphics driver.
- Next is to open Programs and Features then uninstall anything related to the graphics card.
- Once completely uninstalled, download and install the latest driver.
- Reboot the laptop once the latest driver has been installed then test it again.
