Screen colors inverted

\015 I all the colors on my monitor have been inverted! it was fine last night but when i opened it this morning all the colors were inverted, i tried restarting and everything but i cannot fix the issue? what do you think could have happened or is there anything i can do to fix it?\015

Answers :

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.\015\012If the external monitor shows the same color problem, then the video processor has failed.\015\012
\015\012With this knowledge, you can start making calls or emailing to determine what the repair cost would be.\015\012
\015\012Since 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.\015\012If it is a display driver failure, the entire display might have to be replaced for the same reason as mentioned.\015\012
\015\012In my mind, the display replacement might be a tad less expensive but not by much.\015\012
\015\012There 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.\015\012Win should 'find' a 'new device' and reinstall the driver.
