Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My screen is beginning to have scratchy red colour where it should be black. Black backgrounds sometimes has 'static noise' red across it. Or photos with black & movies the black colour is this corrupt red instead. The problem goes away most times when I almost fully close the lid then reopen it or restart the laptop. I've run lots of virus checks incase it's a virus - doesn't appear to be one. What else can I do?
