    Are you suffering from glare from the screen, or reflections and wash-out caused by the light from the windows behind you?

    There are no settings that will eliminate reflections, though increasing contrast may help a little. Putting a glare filter over the screen might resolve your problem, but otherwise turn the laptop around so that it doesn't face the windows, or hang a curtain over the window to reduce the light levels falling onto your screen.

    I assume it works OK at night?

    Paint the window matt black on the inside
    When cleaning computer,
    Caution not to water the electric part
    Or the computations will be meaningless.

    Sounds like it's a Windows problem all right.

    Forgot about that, you could be right! Perhaps he should close all the windows, turn out the light, leave the room and shut the door. Wait 10 seconds then open the door, boot the light, open all the windows again and see if that has solved the problem.

    at those two.

    If all else fails, get a braille laptop and keep your eyes shut.
