That is why you have a reddish tint to it.
Try plugging in an external monitor and see if it works that way.
If everything is fine there then sadly I would say your lcd is about dead.

You have basic colors in any monitor or tv.
Red, Blue, Yellow
When one or more goes bad then the remaining colors try to compensate for that. Not being able to do that then the image colors will be distorted as in your case.
The best way to tell is as I suggested before. If you hook a external monitor up then it will bypass the lcd completely.
If the colors are still bad then it is a video card problem.
If it works then the lcd is shot.
Either answer is not good in the case of a laptop.

You can maybe buy a replacement screen but honestly that is not a very cost effective resolution.
I believe you will find since it is a older system that it may be more effective to just purchase a new laptop.
