I hope someone can help me. My laptop screen shifts up where the taskbar goes up and it goes pink and all words on screen also goes pink for 2 seconds then back to normal for few seconds and back and forth. I have intel HD graphics 4000 driver. i know its old but my laptop been working great and now this happens.

the version of driver is10.18.10.5161 and i did do driver update and there was a update for it. so its now from 8/6/2020. but the pink colors and taskbar also goes green at same time.

so i would like to know how to uninstall driver then after restart how will i be able to see the screen to sign in then how do i reinstall this driver to see if that fixes my screen? 

Oh when i use the hdmi to my tv the screen and what ever  web site i am on it is normal. and videos play normal on the tv screen.

It can display hardware issues as well. As you said, the screen goes pink. This can't be a driver issue. Make sure Laptop's display is okay.
