If you own this Laptop: HP Chrome 14-CA06 B&O touch screen

Post by MarkInLA » Sat Jun 15, 2019 10:50 pm

Hi. I bought this one (on it now) 4 days ago. Got it for $178 out the door at BestBuy. Please, if you have the same one would you let me know if it has these bummers: (1) When watching news shows like MSNBC or CNN, the vids they run (say, about the candidates), are out of focus, not sharp and crisp and usually vibrate up and down very very slightly ? (2) The overall color of flesh, brown, black skinned folks look a tad on the blue side (like the HP colorizing Dept. didn't mix the final color pixels to the T) My 10 year old HP pavilion 14 chrome had none of these irritations. But it died anyway...
I have 10 more days to return mine no questions asked. If your's doesn't do these things I'll know mine is faulty. Much thanks, M

Go to different video sites and try their videos. Also, try a DVD if there's a slot.
If these show the colour problems then it's pretty certain there's a problem with the graphics card.
If these are OK then it'll most likely have been a problem with the original website videos, or a stuttery internet connection.
Getting better bit by bit, day by day.
