    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?
