[Display] Fresh new computer, display looks grainy.

iPeez

Hot food far all world wide!
Hello people!

It has been a very long time since I last poked in here! For the first time I am posting here in the technical support forum, for me this place was always about Warcraft 3!

The thing is.. I bought a brand new computer - it has been constructed for me - the only thing I had to do is install Windows (10), run windows updates and install the driver discs that followed. I realized that maybe these were out of date, so I searched up and Windows found new ones for Graphic Card etc..

So on the updates front things look good! The problem I am having is that the screen is sort of grainy and almost looks out of contrast. It is not, I have tested the screen with a PS4 and another computer and the display looks fine. I am using a HDMI and it is connected to the HDMI port of the graphic card. I have restarted the computer after the graphic card update and also made sure that the correct screen resolution is set. Because to me it look almost like I am running on a lower resolution, it is that sort of effect.

What could cause this?

Below I have attached a cut-out from my desktop - I am not sure if it shows as I see it - but every icon, text and the colors seem at a bit off - almost grainy.

EDIT: If anything is "unclear" (heheh) let me know or maybe I can explain it in another way,.

    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
