    Hi
    The colour of my screen has gone wierd!
    It is almost as if there are some colours missing. some colours are the same but slightly darker. I definitely dont have any red! this appears as black!
    I have tried a different screen and have the same problem. The computer is hooked up to an interactive white board!
    I am a teacher and this problem is very frustrating!
    Any help would be massivley appreciated!
    Where is my knight?

    You gave no specs as far as the computer you are using like OS running and brand and exact model of the computer. So we are clueless as to what hardware is in the computer as far as a video chip or an installed video card. Without that info, no useful help can be given.

    Dell makes lots of PCs, desktops and laptops.
    Look over the case and tell us first if it is a desktop or a laptop. If a desktop, find the label usually on the back or one of the sides but it could be on the bottom, which gives a model number. If a laptop, turn it over and find the model on the bottom. Do not post the Windows serial number.

    The Dells we own have a name like Pavilion or Optiplex printed on them and also the model number. On the Pavilion it is near the on button. On the Optiplex it is printed on the side of the tower.
