The white balance on my monitor is off. Everything looks over exposed. Blue is light blue, red borders pink, yellow and gray are near invisible. I have messed with the contrast, the brightness, the gamma, but nothing seems to work.
Your video card (or driver) is probably to blame. Try hooking a new monitor up to the computer to test this. If so, try the advanced settings in control panel. Many cards give you the ability to manually alter the picture.

Generally, this is caused by the loss of one of the main color inputs (Red Green Blue). Do the Following:
Check the cable connections at both the monitor and the computer. Look inside the connector for any bent bent pins (there may be some that appear to be missing, generally that is normal) then reset the connections firmly and tighten the retainer screw snug, but not extremely tight.
If that doesn't resolve, try the monitor on a different system and see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does, try a different cable. If the problem doesn't occur on another system, then the video card of the effected system is suspect.
If issue occurs on multiple systems with known good cables, then the monitor will need replacement.
Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.
I suspect you've got the audio and video cables mixed up.
Video inputs on monitor will be yellow for video and red/blue for audio. PC end of cable will be round and connect to your video card. Or .. you should have a cable with a 15 pin mini D on both ends or a DVB cable.
The pink, white and blue connectors on your pc are audio connections for speakers/headphones.
