Laptop screen problems

I have noticed that the left side of my laptop's screen turns a light red when on pages with a white background. It is about a fourth of the screen that turns light red. This just started happening today.

Try booting up in a different OS, like with an Ubuntu boot CD. If the screen is still funky it's a hardware problem and you'll probably want to take it in to the shop. If not, it's probably a software problem and you should try updating your drivers or possibly reinstalling your OS.

Heh, I do not have access to a different OS. I reinstalled my OS(Windows XP) back in November due to a virus. I will have to ask one of my more computer savvy friends and see what he thinks.

You might want to try booting up in safe mode with networking. Since that uses a minimal set of drivers, it should help you isolate if it's a driver issue or not.
