I was using one of my computers the other day and suddenly the color display on the monitor changed. It appears that I no longer have any reds (at least that is what it looks like to me). I switched the monitor to another computer and the display was fine so I know it is not the monitor. When I check device manager I do not have any exclaimation marks or question marks on any devices. Other than the change in the color the display is the same. Is this likely a corruption or a component failure on the video card? What do you suggest to sort out the source of the problem?

Hi mlwjackson, try connecting your PC to another screen a laptop will do, check the PC to screen cable for signs of damage including the pins in the end connections and when you reconnect the lead ensure the ends are secure (finger tight only) can you also provide details of your computer and video card etc.
