replaced my laptop screen. now everything is way too green.
So, I replaced the cracked-beyond-being-able-to-see-anything screen on my Gateway laptop last night using a replacement I got from the internet. The replacement screen is a Samsung. The computer works fine (still using an external screen), but the new screen is just like a green foggy haze over everything. Any thoughts? Is it a driver issue? Just the wrong screen? Messed up cable? The electronics on the board on the back of the screen definitely look different, but not radically different, than the ones on the original screen just by eyeballing them, by the way.
I am not using that laptop to type this, so can't remember the model number, etc. It is about 3 years old.
