I've got a Tecra 8000 running Win2000 with the latest drivers/bios, etc. It runs fine and everything, but has this peculiar problem. When first booting up, the display comes out fine, but then gets a green tint to everything. I can fix this by going into hibernate (or suspend) and turning the machine back on (out of hibernation).

Likewise, if I run an app that changes res and goes to full screen (ie: MAME) the screen will go back to a green tint again, and won't go back to normal unless I hibernate->turn back on. Any ideas?

Hi

Did you try to connect the external monitor?
If not try to connect the external monitor and check if this issue also happens on the second monitor.
If not so I assume there is only something wrong with the display on the notebook but if this issue appears also on the external monitor so there could be a graphic card malfunction or also something wrong on the motherboard.
Unfortunately I don't think that you can solve without any professional help.
You should contact the Toshiba service partner in your country.
Explain him the situation.
