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.

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
