Moniter colour gone pink
Cables do periodically go bad. But If I were you I'd be more worried about a bent/broken pins on the end of the cable. Take a flashlight and shine it on the pins on both end of the cable to see if they have any bent/ broken pins. If you do see a broken pin you will want to check the connectors on both monitors to make sure you don't have a broken connector pin stuck in them. Also If the broken pins are stuck in the monitors I'd reccomend going to an electronics repair shop to have them fix it for a low price, But this is a worst case scenario. I'd bet its just a bad cable, or the cable just went bad.
If you don't see any signs of broken pins, then I'd reccomend getting a new cable and a higher quality/heavier duty one.
If its a "VGA"(analog) cable with blue connectors, I would reccomend upgrading to a HDMI or DV(Digital format) I cable if possible. And if thats not doable and you must use VGA for some reason I'd reccomend getting a heavier duty cable from an online shopping site like newegg.com. I personally just got a Rosewill VGA cable and it works perfectly for me. Just make sure you get the correct female-female connector types and also make sure its the appropriate distance. And remember if your getting a VGA(analog cable) the shorter or less cable you need the better, since analog cables degrade over larger distances.
