Might be going south fast, chipset becoming faulty. Safemode check and external monitor is the only option here.

Could be the onboard graphics going bad, or it could just be the screen itself going bad. Does it do it in safe mode? And is the system still usable when the screen is green, or does it crash? if its just getting a greenish hue, I would say the LCD screen itself is going bad. You can sometimes find replacement screens for them off ebay, but you may be better off just getting a new laptop.

Yeah, if the screen remains green in the Windows Safe Mode, it's definitely the LCD Screen that's gone bad.

Last resort would be to use the laptop with an external monitor.
