    Today i bought new laptop. Lenovo 310 with Intel hd 620 with Nvidia 920m 2 gb. I am not sure the screen colour on my new laptop is right. I have still the old one. As u can see in pic left side is old laptop and right side is new laptop. You can see the difference between them. Please check that screen scolours is right. I feel like new laptop's solours is look strange. Is that normal? Any idea?

    The screen on the right looks like a 6400K color temperature...
    If you haven't made any changes to the display settings, try resetting the gpu settings to default...

    Remember, you need to get both the Intel and Nvidia gpu settings to default ;)

    If still the same, try this...
    Shut down and removing the cord and battery...
    Then press and hold the power for 30 secs...
    Reconnect and restart...if nothing's changed, you'd better call the OEM support...

    I would personally back up the original OS...
    Then do a clean install of Windows...
    If the issue still persists, it's clear there's a hardware issue...
    And I'd start the RMA process...

    In your case, that may not be your cup of tea...
    Hence, I advised you to call the OEM support ;)

    Are you sure there's no utility to adjust color? I know that on a lot of the MSI notebooks they use a program called "TrueColor".

    I have come across that kind of screen temperature before - like when one is calibrating the monitor.

    That would have to be a high-end T/W/P series to even be able to order the Pantone Calibrator. They are not available in Ideapads or other low end models.

    Here's the readme text of that software...

    1.0 Overview
    ============
    Pantone Color Calibrator is a software application designed to work with the embedded color sensor inside select Lenovo laptop models.
    Together, this software and color sensor combination can calibrate your laptop to ensure that the color in your images is displayed accurately.

    2.0 SUPPORTED SYSTEMS
    =================
    * ThinkPad W520, W530, W540, W541, P50, P70

    4.0 System requirements
    =======================
    Hardware requirements:
    - Must have an embedded or external color sensor
    - Can be integrated or used with a USB color sensor device.


    In any case, modern graphic cards come with color temperature settings in their software...

    I have a lenovo Yoga 500, the display is slightly yellowish.

    Compare the screen shot with yours.

    Case closed, but... I've worked with a lot of Lenovo machines so far and found that the color temperature of many displays is too cool out-of-the-box (very bluish, washed out). Problem is: Once you're used to this kind of screen, using a correctly (warmer) calibrated color profile might look wrong at first. So it's hard to tell if it's really a hardware issue, or just your eyes that are used to a "bad" color temperature.

    The standard panels that Lenovo puts into their notebooks are really cheap, even on the high-priced business models. Therefore, whatever you do, I'd recommend to take a model with an IPS panel. Everything but IPS looks cheap on a Lenovo.

    A suggestion to the OP for the next time: Try to make a picture that front-faces the display. The pictures you attached have an angle, which can lead to a false impression of the display, especially if it's bad quality or not an IPS panel.
