Your laptop model is notorious for this problem. It is a loose connection with the wires going through one of the hinges of the flip screen. Open up your computer and find a way to plug the wire all the way back in. It can be a frustrating task so be prepared.

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 Outdated drivers or bios have been known to cause screen issues.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 Downloads 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 laptops. In many cases, replacing the motherboard is necessary to remedy the problem.
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.
While in Safe Mode.... Go to HP.com, Support, Drivers.... Download the latest video drivers, including the "Chipset" drivers. Then, uninstall all video drivers by going to control panel, (System, Device Manager) Reboot system, hopefully Windows will install the correct drivers upon reboot. After reboot, re-run the new drivers
if the pink tinge forms like lines that means that you have some dead pixels on your screen, so you have to change it, if the pink tinge is all over the screen, then may be some pixel are dead or it can be a connection problem between the screen and the motherboard, and it's fixeable, tou have to open it and check the connection.
for this, kindly check the BIOS mode of your machien first to know if the pink lines will still show there and if it still show then you may wanto contact your acer support to arrange a screen repair or replacment since issues like this are usually cause by dead pixels or display driver problem or display driver updates issues

First, plug a external monitor and toggle the screen to discard configuration or software problems. If the image displays correctly you have a problem either in the LCD screen or its connection cable.
Open the bezel and check for loose or damaged connection cable. Look specially next to the hinge, ON THE LEFT.
In case the problem is not the cable you might have to get a new LCD. You can have replacement parts and instructions here:
have you tried the video settings by right-clicking the desktop then properties>settings tab then either manually change colour support or go advanced. If it doesn't budge, try turning off the system, go to safe mode if it still has a problem, try reinstalling your graphics or video drivers.
Did you do anything in particular before this happened?
