Default Blue tinted screen

Hey I'm having an issue with my screen, it has a blue tint. It just happened while the computer was unattended. No one has adjusted any setting. Please help.

Edit: Also, anything that appeared red now appears black.

I'm assuming you're tried rebooting? If that didn't fix it, you could try reinstalling your graphics drivers.

Download the latest drivers for your card, and then use this utility:
Driver Cleaner Professional download from
(Make sure you follow the ReadMe file!)

make sure the cable is plugged in all the way in the back.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Maybe you could try the "degaussing" feature.
