    Exclamation LCD has red background .. very disturbing.!

    Hi,
    I'm using ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell inspiron 1420 laptop which i purchased 3 years back.. usually while starting the dell logo appears on a black background,but suddenly 2day morning it has changed to a bright red background.. it causes a blurred visuall effect on the screen and all colors appears changed...
    Is this a hardware problem or software problem??while running diagnostics the colors were displayed but still i could do nothing to change it...
    Plz help me out with this....

    sounds like LCD screen died. i had this happen to one of my laptops once, and replaced the screen. it works normally now. but, that laptop was a pentium 3, so it was a little old...

    i replaced mine myself. it wasn't hard. (but ive been working with computer hardware a while...) the challenge is finding a screen that is exactly like your current one. they usually run around $20 on ebay. (but i haven't checked prices in a while, and it varies by brand, model, etc)

    if you want to replace it yourself, just make sure you are careful and put everything back exactly how it was. chances are there is a how-to out there somewhere, and if you cant find one, the manual for your laptop should help.
