    You could try updating video drivers.

    Most likely it's your video drivers have you installed a new graphics card or anything like that, or how long have you had your graphics card?

    Green screen problem?

    Can you say when do you get the green screen?
    Is it all the time, the desktop, windows explorer, start menu etc,
    or is it just when you try to play a video, and is it just in the video player?
    Which video player are you using?
    Are you playing a bought DVD or from Youtube?
    What make/model is your laptop?
