Hello, Im hoping someone can help me figure out What the heck is going on with this computer of mine......lol
Starting just this week, When I would click to open Any program, my whole screen would turn to a bright pink like a film covering the whole thing......I can still use everything, but because of the colour it makes it hard to SEE ..
Now today, its been happening no matter what I am doing.....even as I type this it is going back and forth from white like it should be, to pink blur

Does this mean I need a new Monitor?
Im assuming its just on its way out, as I have had it doing little hiccup motions for awhile now too, which only annoys me, but doesnt affect how things run

Is there ANY way I can fix this problem With THIS monitor instead of a new one, I truly Have NO money and would go crazy without internet access

Could be a monitor or video card. Have you tried updating the video drivers?
