How to adjust the rgb on a laptop

In laptops and desktops alike, users have the ability to adjust the RGB colour setting. The RGB, or "Red Green Blue" settings control how colours are displayed on the monitor. Most laptops have two settings for users to choose from, 32-bit and 16-bit. These settings can be accessed and changed from the Microsoft Display Properties dialogue box in Windows 7, Vista and XP. The 32-bit RGB setting is preferred over 16-bit, as this setting will display approximately 16 million more colours than the 16-bit setting.
