    same problem

    All colours are distorted. The problem is getting more frequent over time. White turns to a light blue colour. The problem isnt OS specific.
    Colours are mixed up even during boot sequence and in both OS's (I run dual boot vista and ubuntu)

    Colour usually turns back to normal after a little while of being plugged in. I suspected it was a low battery problem, but colour is still screwed even on full battery.

    My laptop is a HP dv2000, about 6 months old.

    I suspect the problem is that the battery is no longer providing the voltage it used to and is causing problems with graphics controller.

    I look foward to finding a solution!

    Same problem, all white areas turns light blue on IE and Windows in general. Light gray shows ok. My Laptop is a HP Pavilion ZE2000

    You might have to replace the LCD screen. Bad LCD screens is the #1 problem I see with laptops.

My dell xps laptop fluctuate sometimes, its been 1 year old...sometimes the screen fluctuate...pls help me


shajuchy19,
If the screen is fluctuating try plugging the power into a power strip. You can also try reinstalling the video card drivers to see if that will resolve the issue.

Thank You,

It may be a problem in the digital section of the TV. If you find a part of the movie that blanks out, try rewinding back to it and see if it goes out again. It may also be the HDMI cable you are using. The blank out is often the result of the TV trying to adjust to the correct resolution for the program being played, and we need to diagnose why it is changing resolutions. Microwave interference and voltage fluctuations can also cause these issues.

Sounds like your colour settings are wrong. RIGHT click on the desktop and click properties. Click the last tab which is display settings or settings. Check the colour is set to 32 bit as opposed to say 16 bit or 256 colours. If you post specifically what OS you're running, I can probably offer more in depth help if this doesn't suffice.

Multiple problems, hoping for one solution


sounds like it is probably worth trying to degauss check this excellent site; http://woil.ws/fixmonitor/ for details of how to try this on the cheap - it works If it doesnt solve your problem, the fact that you are getting different quality from different crt s suggests that they could be the root cause - see if you can get the part number, and get a price you may find it is cheap enough to be worth trying - check also the power supply - poor voltage output can sometimes cause these type of symptoms. Hope this helps, if not post again - some of the other guys know tvs much better than me :)
