I have had this problem on and off for several months now but 3 days ago my LCD monitor screen went pink again and has not returned to normal. Previously I thought it may have been due to a magnetic field so I removed any possible cause. The screen would then flicker from normal to pink and then finally returned to normal. I tried the same thing again and also have tried 3 different cables, still pink! This morning I have tried it on another computer and lo and behold normal! Can someone please tell me what might be the problem? I have no other operating problems, I can do everything but just have to look at this horrible bright pink colour over everthing, very annoying and irritating on the eyes. Thanks

Sounds like graphics card - is it onboard or an expansion ? It could need updated drivers , it could be overheating , it could just need to be removed/reseated if it's expansion . You could lower the settings to performance over quality . Or it could be borked .
I'd update drivers first , then adjust performance settings . Then reseat after cleaning any fans , if applicable . Lower the refresh rate for the monitor . I doubt the card is dying as the problem is going on for months - days would be more likely .

I had an idea it might be the graphics card even though I have little idea of the finer points of the computer world. Everything is built in but I did do a quick flick over the air vents last night, I have an idea now that it could be overheating as you suggested. I will follow your tips and if no luck will return to the point of purchase as it is still under warranty. (Glad I took out extended warranty now!).
Thanks again, much appreciated.
