bkdo leaving the game open in the background doesn't change a thing, unfortunately.
si_edgey tried Edge. Still eye strain (possibly a bit less, but could be placebo). It's almost like there's a glow around the letters, but also everywhere else on the screen that's painful to look at.
Interestingly, within the game the one part that is not easy on the eyes is white text on a black background - e.g.
BUT white text within cinematics - e.g. is perfectly fine. However, when I take a screenshot of the same thing and look at it not within a game, but regularly, through whichever software windows uses to open jpegs - it creates eye strain, even in full screen.
Does this help shed any light on what might be at play here, or not so much?
Also, I have about a week to return the laptop...Do you think buying a different G-SYNC laptop and rolling the dice might help? Unless there are other suggestions of what I can tweak with the current laptop's settings?
Seagull Yes, I do get eye strain from watching full screen videos 🙁
P.S. Would updating windows and/or Nvidia drivers be worth trying? I haven't done any updates since getting this laptop, or updates would potentially make everything even worse?
