If you or a friend can acquire an external monitor for a short while, you will be able to at least separate the problem into two areas; if the test monitor shows normal colors, then the display section of your laptop has failed. If the external monitor shows the same color problem, then the video processor has failed.
With this knowledge, you can start making calls or emailing to determine what the repair cost would be.
Since the video processor is probably a part of the motherboard, this might entail a motherboard replacement since replacing chips by hand that were installed by robots may not be practicable. If it is a display driver failure, the entire display might have to be replaced for the same reason as mentioned.
In my mind, the display replacement might be a tad less expensive but not by much.
There is a slim possibility that the driver software has gotten corrupted so if swapping displays still doesn't conclusively tell you where the problem is, you might try removing the driver from the Device Manager and rebooting. Win should 'find' a 'new device' and reinstall the driver.

My Samsung SyncMaster 931BW monitor has been working fine for me. It was working fine last night turn it back on this morning and the screen is just black. Reset computer checked the cords and power outlet...

Try it with another PC to make sure is is not the PC video card problem, also chek the cable. If it still does not work, then you will have to open it up.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

My view sonic monitor gat very dark. can still see but very dark. do I need a new monitor ? was fine last night and this morning had problem. I didn't shut down over night.

It sounds as though either the backlights or the inverter(which supplies power to the backlights) has gone. If you can still see the desktop but only if you look closely and it is very dark, then the monitor will need repairing or replacing. If it is the invertor it can be done at a resonable cost - if it is the backlight it would probably not be worth repairing. Also it will cost just for an engineer to check it out.

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Bonjouir honored Sir/Madamme, call me V. Unfortunatley this is a typical problem with LCD Monitors, they start to experience no image, or on/off screen issues, the problem is the inverter board, try to replace the inverter board. This should work.
Thankyou, :) V
