Sometimes a loose cable will cause this issue. Check to make sure the cable to the monitor is not loose. The images loosing shape may mean there's an entirely different issue, though. I'm not a monitor expert, so not sure where else to proceed.

Just go a dell precision 380 hook up for the monitor has 3 prongs and the computer has 2 what do I need to hook it up.

On the left side are different views. I am looking at the REAR view

At the Bottom, of the Rear of the computer, are 6 expansion slot openings.
Two of the expansion slot openings have an adapter card in them.
The other 4 are covered with an expansion slot cover. (Metal)

One of the adapter cards is a Graphics Card.

Looking at the Back of the computer, and from Left to Right;
there is a;

1) S-Video port
Black in color, round in shape

2) DVI port
White in color, parallelogram in shape

3) VGA port
Blue in color, parallelogram in shape

This article shows a graphics card with the same setup,

S-Video,

You can use the S-Video port, or the VGA port, or the DVI port; to connect a monitor.
However out of all three, the DVI port is the best.

VGA is Analog.
Your computer puts out a digital signal. (Digital video signal)

DVI is Digital Visual Interface. In otherwords - Digital.
Therefore DVI is the best.

Armed with the above information, can you clarify more about your problem?

For example;

Monitor cable has three prongs........

Using the above information, can you tell me what monitor cable it is?

Computer has two...........

Can you tell me where on the computer, you are trying to plug the monitor into?

Please post back in a Comment.

I lost the color red on my computer


It sounds like you may have an issue with your power supply, graphics card, or monitor. You should call on a local professional to help properly diagnose the issue.

Hello, my video card is nvidia geforce 6150 le and the red color is gone, thank you for your help.


You should be able to adjust the color balance for the card. There will be software on your machine that allows you to set the color balance and other things. Usually there is at least some red However if the red is totally gone then it could be a problem with the cabling/connector between the desktop and the monitor, like a loose pin or wire. It is possible that it may be the monitor that has the red out. So first check your connections and your color balance. If that seems ok then try another monitor before you go further. If a different monitor has the same problem (with different cabling too) then you will know.

Hello Richard.

Make sure that the monitor cables are properly connected when the colors change sometimes is related bacause the connector to the PC is lose (or at the monitor). If the problem persists, try with the power cable.

My gateway monitor just went black/greyish


It's likely the monitor just died and needs to be repaired or replaced. Do you have another monitor you can try temporarily?
