I've got an LCD display plugged to my PCI-e card (GeForce 7600GT), using VGA cable. At some point, after unplugging and plugging it back (I'm also using it with xbox), the display went pink. I can see everything, but it's all pink. I tried different VGA cables and monitors. DVI plug on the same card works fine, so I can use converter, but I am going to buy another monitor and I would prefer to avoid buying a new card. Is there anything I can do? Or replacing the card is the only solution?

If the DVI port works fine, then there is no problem with your video card itself, maybe the VGA port got damaged. – Michael K Oct 17 '11 at 14:56

When an Analog display is showing Magenta Yellow or Cyan for white, or other strange missing colors, it usually means that One Pin of the 3 RGB colors is not connected. Unlike a data stream for DVI and HDMI, the analog VGA is 3 analog signals Red Green and Blue. Chances are good that the Green connection is not being made. Could be a broken cable, bent pin, or just a loose cable. A bent or broken pin or disconnection could exist in or from/to the adapter itself also.

Some LCD display internal power supply faults can result in an overall red tint. Driving the display from something else (another PC or a laptop) may give a clue here as to whether it's a signal issue or not. Also try going into the display's setup menus - if they are pinkish too the fault is inside the display.
