Display dying?

First time poster to the forums.

 

Bought laptop in 2020, used primarily for watching videos with occasional gaming and productivity. Went to nap and when I woke up, this is what happened. Should I go to a repair shop and replace the display? I tried fiddling with the display settings and nothing has changed.

Is this purple ish tint only visible when in Windows? Or do you also see it when booting up the laptop and fx in BIOS? 

If you only see it in Windows, I guess there's a chance that this could be driver related and if this is the case, it's most likely fixable. Just thoughts of course... 

I own the shittiest i7-8700K ever... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah that's a hardware failure then. Guess you gotta go to the shop.

This is more often a display cable issue than display itself, but yeah some repair is needed anyway.

It's actually sound like a port or cable issue. Usually fixable but you'll probably need to take it to the shop anyway in case of a laptop
