Gradients look bad on my laptop. "Bad" as in "color banding", "very strong dithering", especially when subtle gradients are involved.
I use both the internal display and an external samsung SyncMaster T220, conncted with VGA. (The external Syncmaster did not show the error on my old laptop.)
This happens systemwide, from desktop background to newly generated images in photoshop.
I already updated my graohics driver via windows hardware manager and rebooted.
I also executed the Lenovo Sytem Update tool, which updated my BIOS, and rebooted.
What are my options here?
graphics adapter = Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
driver version = 10.18.10.3621
driver date = 17.05.2014
Windows 8.1. Pro 64 Bit
Lenovo Thinkpad T530
Thanks a lot for any advice!
Hello Bob, thanks a lot for posting your issue in Intel Communities.
I would recommend you to uninstall the latest graphic drivers and install the previous version 3496 just for testing purposes.
Please let me know since when are you getting this behavior?
