a friend asked to check out his build, GA-AB350M-Gaming 3
when i got it, it wouldn't boot at all. after a bit of research i cleared the CMOS, and then went about updating the bios to the latest version.
all that went fine.

Q1) when booting though sometimes, the monitor ends up with a pink tinge?
Q2) i've been unsuccessfully trying to install Windows 8 on it. am i imagining it or did i read somewhere that it will only work with windows 10?

I dont have as much time as id like to spend at it, so any advice on the above issues would be appreciated. thanks
