Display shows inverted colors/ very dim picture

Hello Guys , I have a problem with my laptop display (or may be in the built in video card ) , the colors seems inverted (blue to orange / Red to green / white to black etc) and the picture is very dim . Even in start up and dos screen, the monitor seems odd with different colors , I did everything possible to update the drivers though it was very difficult to do that with barely visible letters .

I opened the display and moved the cable see if this will alter the situation but was no difference , I can order a monitor same Model no and change but I am afraid this is not a display issue but rather something in the mother board like the video adapter or anything else!!!

Your kind advice would be highly appreciated .

best regards

Have you tried plugging the laptop into an external monitor or TV to see if it is still the same?

it has a mini display port and a VGA port you can use either to connect to an external display. VGA is common thee must be someone you know who has a monitor connected by VGA may be even a work colleague.
