Reflection off of screen


Plasma TV's are known for their glare and reflection issues, you can still fix it by buying a third party anti-glare filter and applying it on your television. For example, "ViewGuard" makes filters that goes up to 65" in size. It is not cheap though, depending on the size of your television.
Of course, the best solution is to adapt your room accordingly. If the glare is caused by the sun light coming from the windows, installing curtains on your windows or moving your television to a better spot is a very effective way to reduce the glare and the reflections on your television.
If the glare is caused by the room's lights, the best solution is to install ceiling spot lights with a dimmer.

Hope that helps!

Glare from laptop


LOL, not much you can do about the glare unless you buy some type of cover that goes over the screen.

Have you tried darkening the screen by using your keyboard keys that controls the brightness and darkness? Usually they work in conjunction with the FN function key.

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.


The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

Hi john, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Besides buying a new one, you could do this and it is a lot cheaper. Get a small bottle of clear fingernail polish and lightly apply to the scratch and you will be fine and you will hardly notice it. Thanks for choosing FixYa....Happy holidays....John

I want to reduce the amount of glare on my screen but i cannot and im struggling with the glare


Buy a anti-glare privacy screen. (Privacy monitor filter)

It's the best way. They should be available at any computer store.
It is thin like a plastic cover that you place on your screen.

The images on my computer are blurred


if you use the default dell settings you may experience the problem with blurry images in Internet Explorer. This effect is due to the automatic scaling in IE6 and above. IE tries to resize the images so that everything looks the same as when everything is at smaller dpi, but does a terrible job at it, resulting in blurry and unreadable images. Change the following registry setting from 1 to 0 in order to disable this "feature":
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UseHR
[1] Adjusting Scale to Higher DPI Screens (MSDN)



good luck with this. please do this, and get back if u run into a problem. also, if this fixes the problem please rate my answer. thanks so much, Joe

Screen glare on acer 5610-4610


I'm not sure what either of those suggestions would have to do with glare on the screen.
Could you try to describe, in detail, what this "glare" is that you are talking about?
Thanks!
