Why is desktop green like theres way to much yellow hue


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

HP pavillion dv9000 has black horizontal lines across screen and looks like a snowy background


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans snowy background it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Radiation lines scroll on monitor screen


Check and jiggle (yes, that's the technical term) the monitor cable at both ends to make sure the connection is tight. If this doesn't help, borrow a cable from another computer (or a friend) that you know works, and use that to connect the monitor to the computer. If the picture is no longer snowy, you have a bad cable; buy a replacement one from any number of dealers (I recommend http://www.discountcablestore.com/, they're just about the best prices anywhere, but if you don't feel comfortable ordering online, any store with an electronics department should have one.)
If it is still snowy, try plugging your computer into a different monitor and see if the picture is still snowy. If it isn't, then your monitor has probably gone bad; check it's warranty, and consider buying a replacement.
If it is still snowy, post back here with the name of your graphics card (in Windows, this can be found by pressing the Windows key and the R key at the same time, then typing in 'dxdiag' without the quotes, hitting Enter or OK, and looking at the 'Display' tab of the window that opens. If a warning message shows up about it being run for the first time, click OK or Yes.).
Good luck!
