Windows 7: Blue patches/spaces appear everywhere in Windows &, LAPTOP

Blue patches/spaces appear everywhere in Windows &, LAPTOP

Hi guys,
I'm having serious issues with my windows vista laptop display.
I have a Dell Inspiron M501R and this is what everything looks like;
Blue screen fail | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

To be honest, I'm not even sure if you'll be able to see what I'm trying to fix but hopefully this image will display my problem.
If not, what's happening is; everywhere on my display patches of light blue spots appear. Mostly where there should be white space. Even in my images, white spaces are now the same annoying blue.
I recently connected my laptop to a TV, so we could watch a movie on a bigger screen. I don't know if that will help or is somehow the cause of this problem.
This Laptop is just over a year old, I shouldn't need to replace it yet!!!
Thanks in advance for your help,

The image you have posted is not viewable. Try making a print screen preview, or using snipping tool (type "snipping tool" in start menu), then upload the .png file. I'm really not a pc expert, but if you do what i said, you will probably solve your problem faster.
