Hi, a bit over a year ago I bought a Lenovo laptop (80XL) to replace my old laptop that was stolen. Since I've had it there's been a problem with how the screen desplays color, everything's slightly blue tinted and washed out. Normally I'd just make do but the problem is that I'm a digital artist and I NEED to know exactly what colors I'm using.
I've tried recalibrating the desplay tons of times but nothing is working, i contacted windows help but they didn't know how to fix it, i honestly think it's a problem with the screen itself.
The best solution would be to get a graphics tablet with a screen so I could bypass my computer entirely while making digital art but those are very pricey and I want to know if just replacing the laptop screen will work before I spend that much money on a new tablet.
I'm not very tech smart, and would really appreciate some advice.

1. Does the color problem carry over in safe mode?
2. If you attach an external monitor, is the color the same, better or worse than that on the laptop screen?

(I'm trying to isolate a hardware problem - the laptop and a software problem, Windows 10).

The color problem does carry over to safe mode, and unfortunately I can't answer the second question right now as I don't have access to an external monitor.

I don't think replacing the screen would change anything unless you can get a better screen for the same model. What is the full model name for your laptop ? (Look underneath and/or in the Bios)

Getting a good external Monitor could be a better option if you don't need portability.
