I'd use another monitor. If you happen to mean 'screen' in stead of 'external monitor', first try an external monitor. If that's OK and you don't mind not using the built-in screen, it's solved. In any other case: a new video card (if that can be replaced), a new motherboard (expensive, unless you can do it yourself by installing one from a second-hand same model) or a new laptop.

Check it out with an external display. The laptop checked display has many causes from bad cable, motherboard, LCD and rarely a driver. Too rare but a reload of the factory issue OS would fix that right up if it was that.

There are folk that never heard about canned air. It's on the web and if you never used it, start today and do so daily for one week. Then weekly for a month and back to the usual 1st of the month.

Too bad the make/model was omitted, some models are known to do this due to product issues.

...gray scale maske overlay. Sort of like using green screen in movies and TV. Not sure why you'd be seeing that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
