abinaya's curator insight, September 13, 2015 5:20 AM

I upgraded my laptop to windows 10 Professional on the 14th of August and i was excited to explore all the great features that Microsoft had announced. To my surprise, the display was terrible. I tried playing around the settings for about two hours looking for what could be wrong. I did not find it. I thought it was the resolution settings, but it wasn't.
