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.

Changes in color in a laptop or a desktop screen from white to cyan are due to a malfunctioning cable. There is a cable that goes from the screen to the motherboard under the keyboard.Heat, movement of the screen etc will cause this. You should return this item and get another. This is especially important since you have only had it two days. Something went wrong in the manufacture of this laptop. All companies have a 30 day replacement policy and you would be smart to get this one swapped out as soon as possible.

Full screen fluctuation in Acer Laptop.

Sound very much like your LCD inverter might be going luckily there pretty cheap and you should be able to find one on Ebay.

An LCD (liquid-crystal display) inverter is a component in laptop computers that supplies the power to provide a backlight to the monitor, enabling the user to view what's on the screen. This component is commonly the culprit when the monitor goes out and can be moderately simple to replace.

Laptop charges when off. When i turn the machine

It sounds like you are getting a short under the keyboard. The video feed wire and battery charge led are located under the keyboard. This is a common occurrence with aged laptops. To test the video assumption, plug the laptop into a desktop monitor. The short will not effect nor fluctuate the desktop monitor. Dis-assembly and re-seating the video cable may resolve the issue. You might also consider testing the voltage and amperage of the brick, "Power Supply" and the battery with a volt ohm meter.

If it is still under warranty call dell asap. Normally that is the LCD going bad or the video card, which is built in on the motherboard. Usually there is nothing a home user can do with this problem. LCD's are not too hard to change but the Motherboards can be a real bear.
