The nature of your problem not software. This is hardware problem.
Either you have a broken, loose, bent pin in your VGA connector or VGA convertor board in the monitor is damaged. First try changing the VGA cable. If that doesn't work, send it to a repair shop. But compare the price of repair and buying a new one. These days buying is more reasonable than repairing.
But wish you it was only the VGA cable. Good luck.

The monitor is broken. The circuits that generate green in the RGB setup are not working. If its under warranty, replace it.

If you connect the monitor to a laptop's "video-out", do you get correct colours, or do you still get the "orange" ??

If so, then the monitor is the problem.

You may loose connections at the end of the VGA cable, or video card not seated tightly. I would check that first.

PINK Laptop screen

1. Plug in an external monitor to your laptop. If the picture on the external monitor is good, then the problem is your laptop screen. If the external monitor also displays a pink screen, the problem is in your laptop hardware or software.

  • 2 Contact Dell if your computer is still under warranty when the problem is with your screen. If your laptop is not covered by warranty, contact a computer repair shop to have the screen repaired or replaced.
  • 3 Update your drivers and bios. Outdated drivers or bios have been known to cause screen issues. Visit Dell's Drivers and Downloadsicon1.png website where you can enter your service tag and find the appropriate updates for your computer.
  • 4 Contact Dell's technical support team if the above steps do not fix the pink screen. Dell has had known issues with the pink screen being caused by the graphics card on some of their laptopsicon1.png. In many cases, replacing the motherboard is necessary to remedy the problem.

    I made adjustments to my monitor to change the brightness but now all my monitor has a pink tinge to it and all my photos in photoshop are pink. How can I set the monitor back to the factory settings

    sound like a loose connection, check all your cables and make sure they are securely attached to your computer and also the back of your monitor, if problem persist try going to the degauss menu and degauss the monitor, check to see if your color settings are properly configured, also check the color temperature. If none of these suggestions worked your monitor may have a more server problem, hope this helps, best of luck

    Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system and check if you have the same issue with the external monitor also, so, that we can check if the issue is with the hardware or with the software.

    Pink flashing band down the middle of the screen

    You most likely have a bad LCD panel on your laptop, and to verify that is the problem, connect up a desktop monitor to the external VGA connector, and toggle to the external display. If it has a good display on the external monitor, you have a bad LCD panel. If the color band is still showing up on another monitor, you have big problems!

    Display problem with colors

    Check the display on the external monitor. if the display if fine, you lcd needs to be replaced. if the display is the same, your computer mother board has gone bad.

    Turn off your computer.
    now, press and hold the Fn button at the bottom left hand corner. and then turn on the computer. kepp holding the Fn key down untill you see Pre boot self assesment. it will check all the hardware problems in the computer. After 2 minutes it will show you a rainbow. if the colors are fine press Y else press N. it will give you an error code. call dell and give the error code and get the LCD repalced.

    Cant figure out color issue with computer.'s a Dell and even when it's's still a Dell.
    Have you tried the monitor on different system to eliminate the tower being the problem? Some have updated and/or rolled back drivers to help cure this problem, which seems to be a common issue with this LCD. Personally i think the contrast ratio is inadequate.
    Good luck with your Delllll...
