I have a Dell N4010 inspiron i3, and last week it just turned all weird. Colors are off, and the windows 7 theme now looks like its windows 95. All the things work, including internet. I suspect it is the graphics/video card. Any ideas???

Have you tried hooking the laptop up to an external monitor to see if anything changes on the external monitor?

Yes. I have, and it looks normal. Does this mean the screen is the issue? Is it replaceable?

How long have you had the computer. It comes with a one year warranty from Dell unless you bought an extended warranty.

Otherwise it would be an out of warranty repair.
