    My Inspiron Mini netbook has suddenly had its screen colors whacked out. This just started happening today. All of the sudden, all white (#FFFFFF) becomes pink (as in the standard transparent color) and all black (#000000) becomes green. This only happens to pixels that are exactly white or black.

    Also, the screen resolution is messed up somehow - I set it to the usual setting of 1024x768, but the screen stretches beyond the bottom of the screen - only the top half of the start menu shows up at the bottom left.

    I have two operating systems, and this problem occurs in both OS's and in the BIOS.

    Finally, this problem occasionally goes away for up to a few seconds at a time, only to return the same way. This started happening while browsing the web.

    I'm sure this is a hardware problem because it happens no matter what software is running.

    Please help!

    I just had the exact same thing happen to my Mini a couple days ago. I see you haven't gotten a response here, but maybe you've come across a solution by now?

    I called some local tech support shops and described the problem, and they said that either the graphics card or the screen is broken. Either one would be more expensive to replace than a new computer. It might work if you use an external monitor, otherwise it's unsolvable. :(

    That's what I was afraid of. The warranty expired less than two months ago, so something like this was to be expected I guess. Thanks for taking the time to get back to me.
