Hiya and welcome

This sounds like a hardware issue. Does the entire screen turn orange, or just some parts? Also, is this happeing at random times, or after a few hours, etc?

We could see if the grahics card driver can be updated, to see if thats the cause:

Go to Start | Control Panel | System. Device Manager. Under Display will be your graphics card. Also, rightclick and select Driver tab. Whats the driver version?

I also assume this is XP home/Pro.


Just go with the flow, like a twig on the shoulders of a mighty stream

Could you also tell us what you were doing when this happened and especially if you were multitasking. And is this a Pentium 4 Notebook or Celeron? How much memory?
