Hey there guys, just wondering if anyone can help me, i'm completely stumped.

 

Can anyone tell me why this is happening (I'm assuming the paint picture i captured shows what i see but might be wrong) I see mostly red through my screen, I have updated drivers and my GPU is sitting at 30 Degrees © .

 

Obviously this is rather annoying, the card is less than a year old and yes i can probably get a warranty but i'd rather fix it.

 

Please and Thank you in advance for anyone's Help.

The picture you have posted is mostly blue & looks correct to me. This would suggest that your problem is with one of the following hardware items:-

 

Monitor

 

Video cable (if separate from monitor)

 

Graphics card

 

The best way to identify the fault is by substituting these items with known good parts (one at a time, leaving the graphics card until last). Hopefully you know someone with an alternative monitor & video cable you could try.
