The screen on my laptop goes reddish pink after a while, black text with white halo is unreadable on a strong pink background. When I minimize, pink streaks on the desktop disappears, but when I revert (maximize) it is back to pink after a white background.
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:

Prior to the Windows splash screen do you see graphical issues ( black background, white writing, or bios splash screen) if you don't then the problem is with windows and will need to be reinstalled. Samsung ship laptops with a windows cd and is a fairly basic wizard. If you don't know how to do this google is full of guides. If you however see graphical problems right from turning the laptop on then there is likely to be a hardware fault straight from the factory. Contact Samsung and they will repair / replace the laptop through warranty. I have seen several Samsung laptops brand new from the box do this and It turned out to be a hardware issue and was replaced on warranty. Good luck.
Symptoms line up with video card going out, or more likely screen going out. if you turn off the computer and turn it back on if its immediatly reddish/ pink tint then its your screen. Can be a bit expensive to fix. also could be as simple as the ribbon cable inside became loose, test this theory by lightly shaking the laptop. if the screen goes from good color and back to pinkish then that is your issue and you will need a repair shop if you are not comftable with opening up your machine! Good luck to you
