First things first - let's make sure it isn't your screen ! 

 

Connect a known working screen to your computer - beg, borrow or steal one - and see if you still get the red screen. If you do, then the problem is with your computer or video card. If you don't - ie if the computer appears to work normally - then you need a new monitor.

 

Post back and tell us how you get on.

Unlikely but so simple to test, just in case - is the monitor connecting lead securely attached at both ends?  I have known similar problems that were due just to a plug not being fully home.
