Blue screen

by drivered352 / May 15, 2006 9:18 PM PDT

A friend of my son is having a problem with her computer. She says her screen is blue and not black. It isn't the blue screen of death because she can use the computer with no problems except for the blue screen. I haven't seen the computer but was wondering if this could be just a display setting. Any help would be appreciated.
