Why is my Thinkpad so dark?

Episode 1714 (1:40:55)

Megan from Summit, New Jersey
Lenovo X1 Carbon

Megan got a Lenovo Thinkpad, but she's not thrilled with the video quality when she uses Microsoft Office. Leo suspects that when she bought the laptop, she chose the lower end LCD screen and as such, it's not as bright as she would like. Leo says to get one with a screen that is 300-500 "Nits" or brighter.

She is also having trouble logging into Office 365, though when she goes into Word, she's logged in. Leo says that Megan is using the Demo version (known as a "stub"). Uninstall that and download the Office 365 installer and reinstall it. That will solve the problem.
