    Hello everyone,

    I have a Gateway M285-E Tablet PC.

    When I start it up, the screen has a red tint to it. After I get past the boot screen, the red tint goes away. Is this some sort of warning that my screen is going out, or is it just a coincidence that it's going away after the post screen. I currently do not have an OS on it as I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive, ram, etc. So i can't go any further than the BIOS. The BIOS looks fine and the color is how it's supposed to be.

    On an external monitor, the color is fine, so I know it has nothing to do with the graphics on the laptop.

    So, if someone could PLEASE help me, I would appreciate it so much!

    Note: I am pretty tech savvy, so if you need to know any other information about the laptop, please let me know.

    THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
    Mike

    If i had to guess it sounds like a problem with the screen of some sort.

    Yes, deinitely. I was just wondering if there is any type of fix for this besides buying a whole new screen. :(

    It depends on what the problem is.It might just be the bulbs that light up the screen which is cheaper than replacing the whole screen. I would say take it in somewhere so that you can get a proper answer and go from there.
