Default Just got my mini 10v back from repair.. - 12-16-2009, 03:01 PM

I have just received my 10v back from dell, they replaced the LCD screen as I had several dead pixels, the new screen doesn't have any but I'm not sure whether it's the same as the old one.

I can really obviously see the tiny tiny squares that make up the screen, If one of these were to die, it would look like a perfect square, on my other screen the dead pixels were more like circles and they were a lot smaller.

At the moment I'm thinking it's either one of these situations

1. I've been using my other laptop for a couple of weeks until I got the mini back, I simply got used to that screen, my old mini was like this.

2. Dell have put a worse/different display in than the one I had before.

3. I need to tweak some settings to get a better picture.

4. I was watching family guy in bed last night when I noticed it, with the laptop pretty close to my eyes so I would obviously see pixels that close up.

I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.0 but this didn't bother Dell as they said it was clearly a hardware fault, not something I could have done.

This could just be me being really stupid, but I swear the picture on my 10v was better than this before, on the standard desktop for SL I can notice the picture is not quite as sharp as it was before, same with pictures.

The screen resolution is 1024 x 600 in the SL settings.

Can anyone shed any light on this or are all mini's just like this?

Thanks in advance
