You should try to update the driver for the display adapter, not the monitor. right click my computer>hardware tab>device manager if anything, that should be it. You like staying with win 98?

SOURCE: Menu pop ups

Try this:

Under the menu options, there's Menu Lock. Switch it to "On". It worked for me.
My menu button wasn't working, so to access the menu, I had to hold down the arrow up button and push the arrow down button till I got to the Menu Lock Option.

Acer apire one everything on the screen looks like night vision

Color Depth, Hue Intensity, Contrast, Brightness etc are all controlled and controllable by the Graphics Settings.

Right click on the open desktop -> Properties/Personalize -> Settings/Display Settings -> Advanced -> Graphics Adapter -> adjust the color settings -> Apply -> OK -> restart computer -> if problem is not resolved uninstall the Video/Graphics/Display Driver from Add or Remove Programs -> Reinstall Video/Graphics/Display Driver from the Driver CD of from the Support/Download page of the Acer website (see below for the link) -> restart the computer and test again -> if this does not resolve the problem, then you may have a faulty Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Panel Power Inverter of the LCD Panel itself might be faulty. Either can be replaced. The Inverter is relatively inexpensive, a replacement LCD Panel, a little more.

To test for a faulty screen, connect your notebook to an external Desktop Monitor, using a standard VGA Cable -> press and hold the Fn key bottom left of your keyboard -> press the Function key at the top of your keyboard with the image of the two monitors on it -> release both keys -> if the image sent to the external monitor is correctly color balanced and you have tried adjusting the Graphics Settings and reinstalling the Driver, then the fault is likely to be in one of the components of the LCD Screen and you should take the notebook to a repair centre to test test and replace the faulty component(s).

I recently bought a used Dell E193FP flat panel LCD monitor that was working properly on the computer it was taken from. I tried plugging it into my Dell Dimension 3000 computer and the colors are all...

1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz (optimal) resolution is the maximum resolution with 16 color if the other computer had it on 32 bit color setting or the resolution of the monitor aspects ratio changed than it will not display anything on your computer
Solution is plug in your old monitor and change the settings to lowest with the aspect ratio as what the screen size is then plug in the new one that should do it

Need to set the color to 6500K

No, the manufacturer is the one to contact on what resolution is best for your project.
Most monitor are already set for best resolution for photos and movie view and also media editing so you should be OK
if your monitor is a recent model at 16500X780 or it says that is 1080p or 1080 i then you should have no issue with the color setting.
You can go to the control panel and set the display settings for hue, color , contrast and brightness if your Monitor has a graphical user interface for it. Check your user manual for color adjustment for your monitor and also the video card that is install in the PC.
The "control panel will have the display setting for "true, and High color resolution.

Screen is now a weird color

The problem might be in the cable. Try to reconnect it to your machine. Also try to set your color settings on the monitor itself, so that all the colors are equal.

Screen colors

possibly screen color depth is set to 16 colors. - open control panel display - settings tab, slide the color depth to 16 bit. - change resolution to 800 x 600 for now. reboot and see if that does the trick, then readjust settings to your tastes.
