As it's a laptop with an LCD, it won't make any difference changing the refresh rate (although it would on a CRT monitor). It's most likely some of personalisation settings as the hardware is exactly the same.

As you have already tried adjusting the brightness of the screen, perhaps try adjusting the theme to something a little more comfortable. Other than tweaking the visual settings to your liking, I can't think of anything that would cause increased headaches.

It most certainly has to has to be some personalization settings. An LCD's display parameters can't be altered beyond changing the resolution, so anything that's changed has to be software.

Try disabling cleartext.

One thing that helps me is by not concentrating on one particular spot for too long.

For example, I can type without looking at the keyboard, but I look at the keyboard anyway so I'm not staring at my screen as I'm typing. I also tend to not completely focus on one point, but rather I look all around the screen, even if I'm reading something.

Without drivers installed you might not have Cleartype enabled. You can find out by typing ClearType into the Startmenu search box.
