  • Hi Hema Ramani,

    Welcome to Dell community!

    May I know if the red tint is seen at the Dell logo screen that appears when you first power on the laptop?

    Refer the following link for instructions to run the LCD built-in diagnostics: http://dell.to/16eAVHe

    Please check if the red tint appears during the diagnostics. Also, if you have an external monitor, connect it to the laptop and check if the display is fine on the external monitor.

    Do let me know the results.

    Thanks & Regards

    I do not work for Dell. I too am a user.
    The forum is primarily user to user, with Dell employees moderating.

  • Even when the system is in the turn off state i can able to see the impression of the red tint.I didnt know whether it is an mark on the screen or any virus.pls suggest me.

  • This is a physical hardware failure.  

    if it shows up on external monitor then its GPU/Motherboard Related.  If not its LCD related.

  • wt can i do for that.pls give me a suggestion.

  • yes even when the system is shutdown mode.i can able 2 see the impession of the red tint

  • wt can i do for that.pls give me a suggestion.

  • First, what model system is it?  And how old?

    Does the fault show just on the internal screen or on the external as well?

  • It s dell vostro 1510.It s nearly 4 years old.The fault s actually not in the internal screen.it s only in the external monitor.

  • Try a new cable - or a different monitor to see if the problem is with the monitor itself, or the cable.

  • Hi Hema Ramani,

    Just to confirm – is the issue with the internal screen of the laptop or an external monitor that you are connecting to the laptop? I am confused since you have mentioned in your first post that the problem is with LCD.

  • Hi Hema Ramani,

    Thank you for the clarification. Is it a Dell monitor? If yes, is it under warranty?

    In that case, you may take the monitor to a local technician to check if it can be repaired.
