I have a 15" HP monitor that is 1 1/2 years old. I was online and the right side of the screen turned pink, then the screen started flashing and went black. The blue power light stays on. If I turn the monitor off and back on, I can see the screen for about 1 second and then it goes completely black again. I have tried running the virus protection and getting online and rebooting and that seems to be doing fine. Does it sound like I have a bad monitor?

A flickering screen with pink colour is a sign of a CCFL lamp problem.
The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro tube and it provides the back-lighting, it is definitely faulty and about to fail completely.
You need to get it repaired while it is still under warranty.
Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.
my older monitor had a similar problem but instead of black its bright white and it keeps auto adjusting but not right it goes off screen. i still use it just not as a main monitor as it is old. erm see if its it warranty if it isnt then you probably need to get a new one
plug in a different monitor temporarily, check your display settings (right click background, settings, advanced, monitor)
and set refresh rate to 60hz.
plug in this monitor again and see if that helps
some monitors (lcd's especially) cannot handle beyond 60hz
