Pink Screen on External Display (v8.15.10.1968)

2009-11-30, 17:44 PM

x200t:  I am using v8.15.10.1968 driver for intel graphics adapter.:

 

After upgrading the driver, I just plugged an external monitory, that has always worked fine, into my ultradock.  I get a pink screen on the external monitior.  I have tried multipe monitors, multiple cords, DVI and VGA.  No luck.  What is weird, on the 'windows is shutting down screen' the color is fine.

 

I also tried to use the computer outside of the docking unit, and I get the pink screen when using the VGA connector on the side.

 

The laptop screen displays correctly.

 

Any ideas? 

 

I am going to try and roll back the driver.

Here's something funnier... I installed the driver 8.15.10.1855 (version prior) and now my external display works.  But my LAPTOP screen is faded BLUE instead of a PINK!  Pretty funny.  Annoying.  But funny that one is pink, and one is blue.

 

I am re-installing latest driver and will see what happens.

I have the exact same symptoms with a T400s and the latest driver, pink external screen.  Uninstalled and went back to Windows 7 driver from Windows Update.

The same happened on my X200T when the graphic accelerator was updated to the 8.15.10.1968 driver version.

My external monitor turned pink.

I solved this by:

-Go in to the screen resolution and choose "Advanced settings".

-Choose the "Intel Graphics Media accelerator Driver" tab, and press the "settings" button.

-Press the "Color Enhancement" tab, and then adjust the contrast and gamma settings.

Has worked just fine after.

I had a similar problem after upgrading the display driver, except the laptop monitor was turning grayish white while the external monitor was fine.  I downgraded back to the previous version (8.15.10.1855) and that seems to have fixed the issue :smileyhappy:
