    My friends monitor has her screen showing a pink cast and it looks like the picture has pixels missing/breaking up. This happens whether she is on the internet or not. When she turns on her PC the screen is dimmer/pink etc. She has changed her monitor to see if this solves the problem (it didnt) she then unplugged the cables and blew away dust, that didnt help. She has run AVG; Ad-aware; Spybot all to no avail. The PC is 7 years old. No new software or any changes were made before this happened. We are not very technical, is there anything else she can do or does she have to buy another PC?

    Reloading the driver software for the video display adapter on the PC would certainly be worth a try, but it does have the possibility of a hardware failure within the PC.
