    i have an hp div7 and it updated to win 10, everything was fine but all of a sudden the screen looks like it ate acid. ive tried everything even reinstalled win10 and updated all the drivers. anyone have this problem before? when it is on the blue windows window on startup the color is fine. any white/black is all messed up. i want to know if it is worth it to fix it or just buy a new laptop since they are so cheap right now

    Try connecting an external screen through HDMI and see if the issue is present. Sounds like a driver issue, so you could also try downloading drivers direct from HP's site.

    If the problems with color redering it is likely broken the "steel", software part has nothing to do with it. Although, it is better to go to the workshop. If there is an opportunity to repair, then what is the point to buy a new one?
