    Why do you want to know?
    Hello everyone,

    I want to pester you guys (again) with another query, hope you will help me out.

    The Problem.

    When I started my desktop computer today all the windows have a pink background. Before shutting down last night they were white.

    The monitor screen flashes a few times converting from a normal white display to and then settles on a not-so-nice Valentine-pink. Both the display are not permanent, it keeps on changing back and forth.

    What I have done.

    I tried changing the display settings in Control Panel, checked for driver updates, checked for viruses, but the pink hue remains. One of my friends advised me to check if the pins are bent, although I did not do that ,but I did shake the wires. I don't think the pins are bent because I there is no reason for the pins to be bent.

    What else can I do?

    Thank you.

    See first if u can get a friends monitor and connect that to CPU and see if its the same problem...if it is then YIPEEE its tiem for new monitor :twisted:

    If no then some thing wrong with ur display card (i guess)..... if u do not have an onboard display card YIPEE again get a new card....and if its onboard then Hurray(this time :twisted: ) get an new motherboard....

    But i advise take an second opinion before buying anything... :D :wink:

    check out for the speakers nearby or some equipment radiating magnetic field,most of the monitor are magneticlly shielded but just try it it might work also try the solution suggested by wizrulz, i.e bring a diff monitor and check it if that works fine u just need to repair the cord connecting your monitor to the cpu.

    HI NEHA,
    I Think U have make some changes in ur display properties and u have increase the setting of red blue and green colors segment try to default them it should work. Or uninstall ur graphic driver totally then restart and after restart install the graphic driver. It should work I think. Or which windows ru u using do u install an theme changer software which is not compatible with ur windows and it changes frequently check it and uninstall it. Ok bye.

    I am typing this on my laptop as I cant make head or tail in my CRT monitor.



    Tarey_g I did try shaking the cable but not too much, but it made no diffrence. I even tried slapping on the side of my monitor still no diffrence. I tried to pull the cable out so that I could get it cheched, but it seems like it is fixed at one end, at the monitor end that is.

    I use WinXP as my OS.

    I have never changed the display settings, nor have I installed any themes.



    Is this a minor or a major problem. Is it fixable. If I called up a technition how much will it cost for me to repair my monitor.

    Its a hardware problem and the problem resides in ur monitor!

    Simply contact a hardware mechanic and ask him to open the monitor cover and to check the cable connector in the monitor. Seems the pins in monitor where the cable is connected, are loose...

    don't do that to ur monitor, it won't make any positive diff

    i still recommend that u chk ur monitor cable(not the power cable) . if nothing happens do as vishal suggested.

    Due to heating one of the cable connector has become loose inside the monitor cabinet. It's a cable problem. Take your monitor to the service centre. Do not open the monitor yourself if you are not experienced in repairing monitors.

    Very high voltages are inside the monitor 26000 Volts. You touch the CRT even when monitor is OFF and you are dead

    Just called up an authorised personel today. He will be here within this week.

    I did try again, I meddled with the monitor cable for some time. After that I stopped , I don't want my monitor to be damaged furthermore.

    Yeah, even when the computer boots up my screen is pinkish. So it is confirmed it is a H/W issue not a driver problem.

    Glad to hear the problem is fixable.



    Thanks fellas for your time and all of your suggestions.
