I have installed windows 10 on 3 computers at home and the desktop is just too bright on all 3. Two are running NVidia cards and the other is an Intel based laptop with HD3000 graphics. Windows 10 has had all of the updates and latest drivers are installed. I've tried all the versions of the graphics driver I can find including the one that comes with Windows.
The problem is with any Windows desktop environment, eg internet explorer, Word or even just a Window. Whites are eye strain bright. Turning down the brightness on the monitors just gives a dimmer but still overblown image. The computer is clearly driving the monitors too hard. I've tried all the monitors I can get my hands on and they are all the same. The laptop has to be set on minimum brightness to be useable but still is a strain to look at. These issues disappear once other programmes, such as games, videos or images are displayed.
I've found many posts of this nature on the web but there seems no answer. Like most of these I've returned one of my machines back to 8.1 and it is such a relief. I like windows 10 and want to keep it but Microsoft have not published a solution. It did get worse after the November 2015 update.
Using the NVidia control panel makes the situation worse and the changes made can only be undone by performing a clean install of the driver. I have tried most of the suggestions found on the web and no registry tweek has made any difference. Yes I did back up the registry and restore it after each attempt.
Any suggestions? I'd really like a proper answer from Microsoft, at least to know they are looking into the problem would be nice.
