Question about Samsung SyncMaster 750S 17" CRT Monitor
My monitor shuts down and glows pink after powering up the system, and it will remain that way for a couple of hours, at which time it will come on by itsself. It sounds close to the other problems of shutting down only if it is dark you can see the pink glow. Could this be a driver problem?
You could try updating the drivers for your monitor and for you video card. It sounds like their could be a hardware problem. When something warms/heats up the connection is made. A pink glow isn't a good thing. Make sure you check all cables and even try to adjust the actual monitor settings Your heat settings for the colors may be out of whack. Last question? Does slapping it a little help? Good Luck. Let me know what happens. Tim

It is unlikely that a driver issue could cause this problem. The pink glow you see is simply the display being powered on but not putting out any signal. I assume, since you did not mention it, that there is no "No Signal" message up on the screen. If there is, or you can see the onscreen displays when you attempt to use the menu system then your problem lies in the computer, or between the computer and the monitor. As the previous solution states, check your cables. Watch the monitor as you wiggle the cable - if the image flickers then you have a bad connection or a bad cable. If nothing changes try a different monitor (if you can) and see if that one displays the image. If that second monitor does not display the image then your problem lies within the computer.
