We got a new Laptop delivered this morning and the screen looks as though its running on 256 colours or something even though 32 bit colours are selected.

The laptop has the following spec :

# 16" Acer CineCrystal TFT LCD
# Operating System: Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium 32Bit
# Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T5800
# Memory: 3GB RAM (1*2048MB + 1*1024MB Configuration)
# Hard Drive: 250GB SATA HDD
# Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GS 256MB Dedicated Graphics
# Optical Drive: 1X Blu-ray Disc/DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive
# Connectivity: Wireless LAN AGN
# Audio: Optimised 2nd Generation Dolby Home Theater
# Acer CineDash Media Console
# Webcam: Integrated 0.3Mp HD Acer Crystal Eye webcam
# Finger Print Reader: Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint solution
# I/O Interfaces: 3 * USB Ports, HDMI Port, 5-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, MMCplus, MS, MS PRO, xD)
# Software: Acer Empowering Technology

The screen can be seen in the attached pics. Does it sound as though the laptop just needs returning? I thought that initially but then doubted myself as it does just look like a low colour range is being used.

Thanks for any advice in advance
