Please check is there any magnetic field is nearby (speakers etc) if yes then try by removing the field and check,
As our respected experts Ekse is telling you can try his suggestion.
If still the problem is not solved then you should contact the local vendor from whom you have purchased the monitor.
Thanks for posting, plz post if you need further help.

This may be a problem with video cable between your pc and the monitor. if you try twisting / waveing the cable do the colors change?

do you have full range of colors anywhere on the computer or is it pink and red colors only?

  • Ekse Jun 12, 2008

    since this is a brand new computer, I'm sure you have a long warranty still left, so you can contact your dealer for a replacement / repairs. But first lets figure out is this a software setting wrong somewhere.

Hp w2007 why does the computer go pink everything that is green is now black


All the colours on the screen are created by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours (red, blue, green).

Once the production of "green" ceases, anything that should be "100% green" becomes "100% black",
and every colour that indicates some percentage of "green" becomes a mixture of just RED and BLUE, i.e., various shades of PINK.

First, try the monitor on another computer (desktop or laptop). If the problem persists, it's time to replace the monitor. If the problem vanishes, it's the video-card in your computer that is not generating GREEN, or it is the "data" cable between your monitor and your computer that is not transmitting the GREEN request. So, you can try replacing the data-cable, or try replacing the video-card.

Lcd, display with red instead of black


Check the Video cable and try moving the it around and see if the color will come back normal. This kind of problem can be cause by faulty cables.

Check your vga driver is working ok otherwise run the vga driver setup ajust the resolution and refresh rate your monitor will be ok

If you monitor is red/blue or yellowish then you have to replace it because colour

Go to control panel then choose system - hardware - device manager - > expand the display adapter any exclamation mark or question mark there.

That means you have to reinstall its driver .

The writing is too small for me to resd


Hold your Ctrl button down, then use your mouse scroll button to enlarge or make smaller the print on your Internet Explorer and Email pages.

You can also change the resolution on your desktop to make everything larger :
First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.
94b1939.gif The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

When set to 800x600, means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
