    Since my monitor doesn't display red, what all hope is there of me fixing it?

    Is there maybe a place I can go to download drivers that can fix the problem, or is my monitor blown?

    I doubt it's a software problem. First shut off the computer. Then try disconnecting the monitor from the computer. Look at the end of the cable. Do you see any bent pins? Try connecting it again. Turn the computer on. If you still don't have any red, then the red gun inside the monitor is probably shot. You'll have to replace the monitor.

    Usually 2. One connects from the monitor to an outlet. The other connects to the back of your computer.
