I purchased an HP Laptop - 15t-dy100 which is 15.6 inch with 15.6" diagonal HD SVA BrightView micro-edge WLED-backlit (1366 x 768)

The screen does not look sharp and kind of blurry. Is that normal now? I have a 10 year old laptop from hp with same resolution but 14.1 inch and it looks sharper and less blurry and faded than the new one.

Is this normal or my system is bad? Something I can do to fix it? Is there a way to find out how bright the new and old screens are? Can't seem to find that on hp website for new system.

Its neither sharp nor blurry - you appear to be confusing/merging 2 different concepts - and the problem is likely a software setting.

1366*768 defines the number of pixels the screen comprises off. A pixel is a coloured dot - no possibility of blur.

What is likely happening is that the OS thinks the screen resolution is different to 1366*768 and is sending out at higher (or lower but probably higher) resolution, which is then being converted to the screen resolution and becoming blurry as a result.

The solution is to make sure the OS outputs the correct resolution.

  • How do I make it output correct resolution? Windows 10 already has the recommended resolution selected 1366 x 768. This is a laptop screen not a external display so what can I do if it's software. I try to avoid hp support as they get in and make a mess of systems most of the time and not have an answer.
