Angry Any give help/advice

Hi,

Just a few minutes ago i was on my laptop when all of a sudden the screen went blue, you could still view what was behind but all the pixels were blue and discoloured. Can anyone tell me what could cause this and is there a fix???? Maybe my graphics card is dying????

No, it happened after about 15 minutes of turning on in the morning so it's not getting too hot and none of the fams are blocked there all working fine, i am aware of the problem that it can get too hot and distort but i don't think that's the problem.
