as far as I'm aware, there is no red screen of death ... catchy name though

try to switch your color profile, maybe it got changed, although how that would happen I rly don't know

go to system preferences/displays
select the color tab
there you can select different color profiles for your lcd, mine is set to the default (i believe) of Color LCD

try this out if it helps, however however illegal your downloads were, I'm guessing movie/game torrents or rapidshare and stuff, there is no way that would change your screen tint to red

Maybe your GPU pooped out on you.

When you power up your computer, does it make any noise?

Thread moved to more appropriate forum. Please read before posting in Rumors & Reports.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
