Dell Laptop Monitor

My Dell Inspion 6400 laptop screen has suddenly gone weird.

Any white areas on the screen show up as Cyan and some images have a colour cast.
If I open up a new blank page in PSP it appears as Cyan but I can flood fill in any other colour except white when goes back to Cyan.
Same with web pages and E-mails, even EPZ has succumbed. Grin

Is the LCD screen on the blink or is it a software problem. I'm running Vista 32bit.

Occasionally it will flicker and revert to normal for a few seconds, which makes me think that it's the screen giving up the ghost.

Any ideas folks?

I suspect I'm going to fork out for a new laptop. Sad

Screen working OK now, I pressed the metal casing of the lid and the screen flckered and has reverted to normal (hope it's a permanent 'cure').

Must have been a dodgy contact or something, but I'm not going to dismantle it to find out, (yet Grin)
