I figured it out, I used the my systems hotkey to return to system display (ctrl alt F3) and then set the mode to clone display, and the monitor worked. I then set in to clone displays and found that the tv's resolution and refresh rate had been changed which must have caused the problem. I reset them and then returned to output to TV only and it worked fine. Must just have been a bug in the game or my display driver. Sorry for posting and answering my own post but hopefully this will help someone with a similar problem.
I have my samsung RF711 S02 plugged in via HDMI to a polaroid monitor, and the signal out of nowhere started to just flash pink. I have tried other HDMI cables and they do the sam thing. I have tested the cables and they work fine, I also plugged the Computer into a different Monitor and the display works fine. I am wondering if it is a problem with the monitor's input or if some settings are causing the problem. I cannot change the settings of the monitor via the PC because i cannot access the settings when the monitor is plugged in due to the flashing pink image. Is there a way to change monitor settings without having the monitor plugged connected to the computer? or is this just a case of the monitor being broken?
