As title states I can't see the color red on my desktop or in games. I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, installing previous drivers to no avail. Can someone tell me if this is a software issue or hardware? When I uninstall the drivers and plug the HDMI into my MSI R9280x it's normal. Aslo when I plug my VGA cable with DVI adapter onto another monitor blue doesn't display.

Missing colors indicates a bad analog cable.

I've tried 2 different VGA cable 2 different hdmi cables and 3 DVI adapters with a ll the same result.

 

Tried the GPU in another slot with the same results. It seems like this only effects the primary monitor.

Unfortunatly I don't have another computer with a compatible slots for the GPU.

NOTE: The issue only appears after Starting windows screen.

I uninstall Microsoft C++ programs and reinstalled the lastest CCC drivers and my secondary monitor doesn't show red color through VGA with DVi adapter. I'm sure it isnt't the cables. I'm afraid that my GPU has run it's  course after 6 months...

 

It shows monitor 1 in a red tint and 2 is my primary and is normal.

If I swap the numbers my main monitor is normal. I guess I'll leave it like that for mow but I Hope my GPU doesn't die on me.

 

I guess I'll be without a seocnd monitor til I can figure out what's going on.

If it's not the cable, then it can be the connector on either the card or the monitor.

I have a VGA cable with a DVI adapter connected to one of my monitors the other one is connected with an HDMI cable. For some reason the identity of the monitor effects the messed up colors. If I swap the identities the problem switches over to the other screen.
