    then apparently it is a hardware error....

    I have a serious hatching/
    ghosting effect on the entire screen. contast os awful and it looks as though the entire screen is a hologram.

    any thoughts?

    You need a photo. A screenshot won't show a flaw in the display.

    Connect an external display if you can - if it's fine then it's the display itself, otherwise it's GPU.
