Brand new P650HP, monitor has yellow tint

Recommended Posts

I have tried several color profiles and color calibration, but theres still a yellow tint ontop of everything. Took a screenshot and sent it to my old laptop, and the colors there display fine, so I think its the monitor.

Any ideas on what I can check for? So far I have had people suggest that its a backlighting issue or that the monitor cable is loose, neither of which sounds simple to fix...

Have tried :

-Updating drivers

-Color calibration

-Color profiles from other notebooks with the same monitor

-Setting the laptop to discrete mode

As an example :

You can see the green has a definite yellow tint to it.

I set my laptop to discrete mode, restarted, and everything looked normal...and the display adapter was set to 8 bit using the "Microsoft display adapter"
But after a while it changed to 6 bit using the Nvidia GTX 1060
And the yellow tint came back
Nvidia control panel has an option to change the bit depth, but it only allows me 6 bit for some reason
How do I change it to 8 bit?
