Pink Screen: Only when hooked up to monitor.

By J.Runn ·

I have a Dell Studio 1745. It has the Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset driver version with 1695MB of total memory. (Latest update from Windows Update) Bios Version is 1.00 A01.

- I tried to roll back the driver, but when I try to do so, the option isn't available.
- When I'm only using my laptop screen and it's plugged in or on batteries, the screen doesn't turn all pink.
- I used the VGA port to plug my laptop into a 47" Vizio 1080p and the display was fine.
- This didn't happen until I plugged it into a MAG 22" WS monitor. (1680x1050) It turns pink when, (1) The Welcome screen appears, (2) When the administrator prompt appears. When I open the color calibration tool, it fixes it until 1 or 2 happens again.

Any Ideas? Let me know if you need any further info!! Thanks for the assistance!

Check the VGA Cables

by Daniel.Muzrall In reply to Pink Screen: Only when ho ...

I've seen this problem come up on a variety of CRT and LCD monitors, and the most common culprit is damaged/defective VGA cables. First thing I'd try is swapping out the VGA cables to see if that resolves the issue. In most cases, that will fix it. Another option is to try a different video source (DVI, HDMI, etc.) if available.

VGA Cable Type

We had the same issue here at our company but worldwide. We found that using the gold connectors for the VGA fixed it with the higher resolution monitors.
