Error Messages:



I have been receiving strange coloration on the screen of my notebook.  Often it happens when I turn on the computer, but also at other times, like when smaller screens pop up (like when I am printing and the screen from my printer pops up.)  It is hard to explain, but it has "spots" of various colors.

Most of the time, like right now, the screen appears fine.  But, it is a regularly recurring problem.  Any suggestions?  My notebook is about two or three years old and I use it almost every day.

Start saving for a new notebook then. It is possible your LCD screen is going on the frizz, and when it does, a new notebook is cheaper than buying a new screen.

The effect you describe though sounds like something burned in around the position where those popups occur. There's nothing you can do about it.

I would check to see if the notebook is still under warranty and if it is then the company you bought it from will replace the screen for free.
