Toshiba L675-06X
Laptop.

I have an aunt who dropped her laptop from about 3".  The video on the display is now pinkish.  I am thinking the video card is buggard.

I checked settings (True Colour) all settings are normal.

Anyone know if it is on-board or separate?

Thanks.

My presumption is that it is a problem in the display itself, not the video circuitry (most likely on the motherboard) that drives it.  If you were to connect an external monitor, that would tell you where the problem is.  If the external monitor is pinkish, then it is the video "card".  If the external monitor looks correct, I'd conclude that the problem is in the display.

you can also remove/ reconnect the display connector from the mobo, but i fear it can be a bad display.
if you know your way around, open the display, and look for half seated connectors and such
