    I have tried several color profiles and color calibration, but theres still a yellow tint ontop of everything. Took a screenshot and sent it to my old laptop, and the colors there display fine, so I think its the monitor.

    Any ideas on what I can check for? So far I have had people suggest that its a backlighting issue or that the monitor cable is loose, neither of which sounds simple to fix...

    Have tried :

    -Updating drivers

    -Color calibration

    -Color profiles from other notebooks with the same monitor

    -Setting the laptop to discrete mode

    As an example :

    You can see the green has a definite yellow tint to it.

    I set my laptop to discrete mode, restarted, and everything looked normal...and the display adapter was set to 8 bit using the "Microsoft display adapter"

    But after a while it changed to 6 bit using the Nvidia GTX 1060

    And the yellow tint came back

    Nvidia control panel has an option to change the bit depth, but it only allows me 6 bit for some reason

    How do I change it to 8 bit?

    Edit : Managed to get the intel hd630 to 8 bit with an older driver, but the GTX 1060 refuses to do 8 bit. Screen colors are still off but its better now.

    I'd suggest talking to your reseller to get it replaced.
