    Go to Control Panel - Color Management and check to see if your settings have been changed. It just sounds like red saturation has been turned up. You can recalibrate your display colors from this applet.

    Most likely this broken or loose line leading to the display. As Hovsep suggests, you can test it with an external screen just to confirm it's not something else. If the problem does not occur on an external screen, you should check the ribbon cable that leads from the motherboard to the screen. If you're not experienced in these things, best take it to technician. This should not be an expensive repair.

    Is it like that immediately from startup? if so it could be that the backlight is on its way out...

    first connect the laptop to external monitor and check if the screen is clean, if not can be for several reasons, inverter problem, bad driver so update, cable problem.
