    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.

    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?
