I looked at the image and it all seems fine to me (no pink). Have you tried updating your video card drivers? If so, can you roll them back to see if that is what caused the problem? If not, try updating the drivers from the manufacturer's web site.

I'm pretty sure that if you see pink but the screenshot does not show it then you either have a bad video cable/cable connection, a bad monitor or a bad video adapter. The screen shot is OK because the system's graphics memory has all the correct colors but they are not getting to the monitor.

These checks can only be made on desktop systems:

1) Make sure that both ends of the video cable are securely plugged into the monitor and computer jacks. Try unplugging them then reinstalling.

2) As test to help narrow down the faulty component try using a different video cable and/or a different monitor to see if either has gone bad. Alternatively, try your video cable and/or monitor on another "known working" system, *one at a time*.
