    Neither do we, really.

    Maybe if you provided us with some very basic essential information we could get started...

    I'll humour you because it's christmas time;
    What kind of laptop, how old, what OS, WHEN does it turn yellow? Have you kept the cooling system clean?

      Did you try turning off the laptop by keeping the power button pressed?

      If that doesn't work, disconnect the power cord and remove the battery.

      Start it up again. Still a yellow screen? Then describe to me what you can and can't see. (IE: Is it entirely painted in bright yellow or just a yellow hue?)

        Alright, so the screen turns yellow in Windows?

        Is there any visible damage on the monitor? You said your son shut the screen. He didn't damage anything did he?

        To rule out Windows being damaged, lets boot into safe mode.

        Restart the laptop and keep tapping F8 before Windows loads. You should be presented with a screen that says 'safe mode'. Click enter and wait for Windows to load. No yellow screen? Report back. Yellow screen? Report back. You'll have to restart the laptop to get out of safe mode again.

              Have you tested it on an external monitor?

              I assume you went into safe mode and that everything still looked yellow, yes?

                It does sound like something might be breaking down. I'd keep some cash from getting into the hands of Santa Claus just in case...
