Specs: Windows 7
Everything else works fine on my laptop, just the colors are off. The desktop is dark and red flickers and then when i open up google chrome the top around the address bar is red and then it goes down to blue with flickering light blue on the screen! Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Yes, you dropped it and did physical damage to it. It could be a dozen different broken points. Your best bet would be to take it to a shop and have them check it over.

If you really want ot try and troubleshoot it yourself and are up to dissecting it, take it apart and look for loose connections between the video circuitry and the LCD screen such as ribbon cables coming loose. Start at the motherboard then look at the connections that go to the actual screen. If you are not real machanicly inclined, or have never worked on laptops before, I would not suggest doing this on your own. You could end up doing more damage then good.

Thanks, I was using it and tilted the screen straight up and the color actually came back perfect, i have not tried to move it again, i am to afraid it will mess up again! LOL If it keeps messing up then my husband is going to take it to a computer shop that he used to work at and see if they can look at it!
