What would cause the monitor's color settings to change? I booted up one day and immediately noticed the colours looked wrong. I checked the settings and found all the RGB numbers were different from what they had been. My user setting had gone up to R100/G100/B100 (I had not accidentally applied factory settings). The normal, red and blue presets (which cannot be altered) have changed too. I re-applied my user preset but the result is not what it used to be. Overall, the monitor seems too bright, and no amount of fiddling with the brightness/contrast will make it right.

Your RGB settings has most likely been altered, resulting in some problems. Check your settings menu on the monitor itself and reset the settings to default. If that is not the problem, it's probably the computer's settings that has caused this change. You will need to go to the computers monitor settings and reset that to default to get back to normal colours.
Well a few things could be wrong. In my shop I could tell you pretty quick which it was. But lets look at the possibilities. 1. Monitor has gone bad. 2. Somehow the monitor has become partially disconnected from the PC on one end or the other. 3. The video card has gone bad.
First check that the cable is plugged in to the PC and the monitor securely. If that doesn't fix the problem check it with another monitor. Borrow one if you have to. If that fixes the problem then you know your monitor gave up. If it doesn't fix the problem then your video card is bad.
Hi, Do you have a CRT monitor?
Have you tried to adjust the color on the monitor?
How is it connected to your computer?
It sound like one of the guns on you monitor died. But there is some testing you should do first.
If it is a CRT monitor and it is connect your computer properly.
First thing to do would be to replace the cable and or try a different
monitor that you know works.
To confirm try adjusting the color. If that does not work, if it
more purplish it is the green gun, if it is orangish it is the Blue
gun. That would be cause by a failed gun or driver.
If the gun is gone it is best to get a new one. It will save you money in the long run.
there may 2 problems 1 ) Problem with the Data Cable connector the Pins might be damaged try to arrange them if disturbed / bend . if Broken change the connector. 2) Open the monitor see the soldering carefully you can locate out the dry solders easily by seeing the flux colour around it . just put the solder over there..by soldering gun to all places where u can see the dry solder.
Have you loaded the drivers which came with the monitor. This will probably allow you to change the settings.
Right click on an area of your desktop and choose properties. Look at the monitor and make sure the resolution is set to the recommended level possibily between 60 or 75 dependant on the model. Also you can get to the display card settings here and change them to suit. Dont get carried away or you can make it so that you cant see whats on the screen at all to be able to change it. Could also be that your monitor is faulty. Check with your manufacturer. It its an old telly type monitor maybe one of the "guns" have gone so you dont get the right colour mix of red green and blue. If this is the case you will need to get a new screen.
I assume you tried another monitor cable as well, if you didnt, it is one of the most common causers of unbalanced colors. if you did, my guess is you have a bad color gun. It's a very common problem. in this case, a trip to the local repair shop is necessary. before you do, you can try pulling out the VRAM and reinstall it. its a long shot, but you got nothing to lose.
