Today, my monitor kept showing a tint of red on my entire screen and don't know how to get rid of it. I tried tweaking my monitor color settings but that didn't work. Then I tried tweak the color settings on my GPU (R4670HD) and fixed it for about half a second. Please help me fix this problem,

Sounds like your video card is starting to die. They start to get weird stuff like that when they are either overheating or dying. You can try downloading a Linux bootdisc and either burn it, or run it from a USB key and see if it does it in Linux as well, or even go into your BIOS, does it do it there? This helps eliminate if it's hardware or software.

It doesn't do it when I go into BIOS.

This is not caused by the video card, it is typically caused by a failing wire in the monitor cable.

If your monitor supports interchangeable cables (most do) try a new/different one, that will more than likely solve the issue.

It can even be caused by simply a loose connection.

I checked if it did the same thing on my laptop and it was fine so I don't think I might have to do with the monitor cable or whatever
