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 Outdated drivers or bios have been known to cause screen issues.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 have the same laptop and recently went to fix it bc it had dots/pink squares on the screen.. they told me I needed to replace the hard drive, so I did. After two months I'm having the same problem.....

    Replaced a HDD ? Sounds like a Graphics Adapter problem, if you connect it to a External Monitor, is it the same? How about booting to Safe Mode, still same? When does the dots/squares appear? At Boot? Does the Laptop overheat? Does it need cleaning? Fan, vents, heatsink? Does the Thermal Paste need replacing? I had a similar issue with the Graphics Adapter in a Sony Vaio, dots, lines, squares, frozen, I informed the owner it's basicly dead, unless you replace the Motherboard. If you Post the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS you are using it would be helpful.

    Pink square screen

    All you need now is a pink laptop, and you'll have a laptop that Paris Hilton will be jealous of.............

    Problem is;
    1) Graphics chipset
    2) Video Cable
    3) screen Inverter (IF used)
    4) LCD screen

    Problem needs to be diagnosed.

    Post the laptop manufacturer (Acer?), and model number.
    Model number can be found on Bottom of laptop.

    Suggest start with external monitor attached to laptop.
    (Laptop OFF, monitor OFF)
    See if problem is graphics chipset; or just the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.
    (screen Inverter IF used, or LCD screen)

    Once I have the name, and model number; then I can guide you step by step with the above; if you wish.

    My dell inspiron 4000 screen is green or pink and when I move the curser it's like I am painting with a brush with white paint. The colors are distorted with mainly pink and green

    Since you already hooked up a desktop monitor and it works fine then that only means that this is already a hardware issue. Most likely the screen. Contact Manufacturer.
