My monitor just turned pink

#1mafiafunPosted 6/2/2012 4:55:11 PM(edited)
So my monitor just turned pink and I was unable to click or do anything further. I just hit the restart button on my computer and it fixed itself. I just did a search and saw a lot of posts saying that this is a monitor problem, and NOT HARDWARE PROBLEM. I just wanted to confirm whether this is true or not? Is it my monitor is starting to die? Or do I have a faulty graphics card?

If you look at the very beginning of this video:

The color used to write the title of the video and by yourdailylaughz was the color that my entire screen turned into. This occurred exactly when I clicked on the link.

A lot of the clips have been in previous videos.

But on topic, any ideas if it's gpu or monitor problem?

Do you have nvidia? Cause it seems to be a problem with the latest drivers, I get it when I watch youtube videos, nothing else.

Yes. I got a 560 ti just recently. So this is nothing I should be concerned about then?

I don't think so, I've seen other people complain about this problem on this forum not too long ago.
