Hello, Im hoping someone can help me figure out What the heck is going on with this computer of

Starting just this week, When I would click to open Any program, my whole screen would turn to a bright pink like a film covering the whole thing......I can still use everything, but because of the colour it makes it hard to SEE ..Its like looking thru rose coloured

Now today, its been happening no matter what I am doing.....even as I type this it is going back and forth from white like it should be, to pink blur

Does this mean I need a new Monitor?

Im assuming its just on its way out, as I have had it doing little hiccup motions for awhile now too, which only annoys me, but doesnt affect how things run

Is there ANY way I can fix this problem With THIS monitor instead of a new one

(The graphic card I have has the latest drivers available so I cant update that)

First check the monitor cable. Take the videoconnector out of the videocard (with the PC off!! so you don't blow the videocard.) and check if all pins are nice and straight and accounted for. (use this diagram to check)

If any pins are bent, use some tweezers to bent them back straight again, then plug the connector back in and turn the PC on. Still reddish-pink?

Wriggle the VGA connector. If it clears up, all you may need is a new VGA cable. If the cable is a one-fit to the back of your monitor, a good TV repair shop or PC shop should be able to put another connector or cable on.

If wriggling doesn't change a thing or makes it even worse, it's the elctron gun in your monitor that's losing it. Only then do you need a new monitor.
