Re: Pink screen on the laptop but when iattach an...

Pink screen is usually a sign of the backlight going bad. Does it go from pink to normal after a while? usually that is the ccfl warming up- but it will need to be replaced- either the whole lcd, or just the backlight (ccfl) part of it.

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 Outdated drivers or bios have been known to cause screen issues.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.

    Pink screen

    If the pink lines or streaks are across the screen then this indicates the CCFL lamp will fail soon.
    To confirm it is not the video chip on the motherboard, connect an external monitor to your laptop, power up the monitor first and then boot up your laptop. The video will automatically divert to the external monitor and if the Windows image is normal then this confirms a problem with the CCFL lamp and it needs to be replaced.

    Lcd screen has pink tint

    Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please connect any external monitor to the laptop and check if the same issue happens on the external as well.
    • If the external one also has the same pink tint then try and update the video drivers for the system.
    • If the external display is fine without any tint, then, I believe the issue is with the LCD of the laptop itself, you can try restoring the screen to factory settings and check if it helps.
    Otherwise, I would recommend you to please get in touch with the vendor itself.
    Please let me know if it was of some help.

    Thank you.

    The comuter works but the screen is pink

    Chances are the video inverter is bad. have it replaced at your local shop or order the part online and replace it yourself.

    A good way to see if it is the screen itself is to plug in an external monitor into the VGA port on your laptop. Is the second screen pink or fine? If its fine you need a new inverter board.
