I have an ASUS eeePC 1005PEB and all of a sudden elements that should display on the screen as black, now show up orange! On occasion the orange elements will swirl and wave slightly, especially while I switch from one window to another window. I've had this same issue arise before and resolved it by re-installing the OS (Windows 7 Starter). I coincidentally had a OS booting issue at the time but once I re-installed the OS, both problems were fixed. I used to think they were related issues but with the second occurrence of this screen problem, I no longer think its related because the OS has no problems booting up.

Here's what others were saying online through tutorials and other forums...

-Some say it a driver issue, specifically the directX drivers. (I've updated them and no result)
-Some say it's a hardware issue, specifically an issue with either the physical wiring of the screen itself or an issue so severe it requires complete replacement of the screen. (This, I cannot afford)
-Some also say that it's a BIOS issue. (Which I don't know enough about BIOS to say that's likely)

Now, I'd say it's starting to lean toward screen replacement after reading about this issue online, however I figured I'd run it past the infinite genius of the internet first to see if there's a less costly way!

Any assistance will be appreciated! Thank you for your time.
