Monitor Showing to much red

I have an Acer View monitor on a insignia computer that is running windows vista ultimate. And for some reason the photos I save to my computer are showing more red than anything else every thing save to the computer has a red tint to it. How ever this does not happen when the image is online. If I save the image from online and open it it has the red tinting.

    It's not the monitor it's coming from the computer and it is showing more red tones. Web pages and web images do not show the red tint. THumbnails are not affected only full size photos. All of the pins are straight. I hooked the monitor up to my laptop and it works fine. But on the desktop computer it shows too much red in photos. No where else just photos and as I said it does not do this online or with web images only with photos that have been saved to the computer and accessed from the computer's hard drive or any drive connected to the computer

Hi,
Is it possible that your PC or Monitor is just showing more red tones? Have you checked a WHITE background like a blank webpage? Does it have a red tint too?
Do you possibly have speakers or an external fan near your computer or your monitor? If so they sometimes have magnets that will interfere with your screen.
Another thing you might want to check is to unplug the monitor cable that attaches to the computer and check and see if any of the PINS in the plug are bent.
Please let me know how this works out for you.
Thanks,
Kaj

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

TRYING TO CONNECT TWO MONITORS FOR EXTENDING USE


1) You have to have a graphics card with two monitor ports.

You Cannot use one port on a graphics card, and the VGA, or DVI port on the motherboard of the computer.
BIOS will only let you use the graphics card, or the Integrated Graphics.

2) Using a 'splitter' cable results in very bad graphics on two monitors, or no graphics at all.

3) With a graphics card installed that has two monitor ports on it, connect the monitors to the graphics card.

[ The graphics card can have a VGA port, and a DVI port. Or the graphics card can have two DVI ports.

VGA = Video Graphics Array
Photo of a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Photo of a VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vga-cable.jpg

DVI = Digital Visual Interface

Information about DVI showing a DVI cable, and connector examples for the DVI port on a graphics card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface ]


4) Turn the two monitors on once they are connected to the graphics card.
Turn on the computer.

5) Windows loaded, right-click on an empty area of the desktop screen.

6) In the list go to the bottom, and click on Properties

7) Click on the Settings tab.

8) You will see two monitor icons.
One icon has a square with a 1 in it.
The other icon has a square with a 2 in it.

The 1 monitor icon is used to represent your Primary monitor.
The one you have been using.
As you can see the 1 monitor icon is sitting to the Left.
This is how your Primary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

The 2 monitor icon is used to represent your Secondary monitor.
The one you are going to add.
As you can see the 2 monitor icon is sitting to the Right.
This is how your Secondary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

Left-click on the 2 monitor icon.
Go below in the Display Properties window, and view where it states -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is an empty square to the left of it.
Left-click in the empty square.

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Finally go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Your desktop screen will now be on your Secondary monitor.

Whatever is on your Primary monitor, has to be drug over to the Secondary monitor, when you are on the internet, or a program. (Such as a game)

Go to the blue frame on the Left side of the Windows screen.
When your cursor turns into a double-headed arrow STOP.

You'll find it's a little tricky your first time, keeping your cursor into the position where it turns into a double-headed arrow.
With the cursor in a double-headed arrow, press the left mouse button down, hold it down.
Drag the monitor screen to the Left.

Keep dragging until the window on your Primary monitor is on your Secondary monitor.
It's helpful you'll find to have two of the same size monitors.

I have found occasion where when using the internet on two monitors, that I had to Restore Down the screen, THEN drag it over to the Secondary monitor screen.

(Icons at the top right of the monitor screen.
Minimize ( - ), .......Restore Down/Maximize, ...........Red X

Then I Maximized the screen

Hello, I have a HP 22w LCD monitor, running


Can you try the monitor on another computer? Also, make sure the cable is tight on the monitor side. And you also may need to replace the cable between the monitor and the computer.

Blue tint...then unresponsive...only 5 months old


You're probably lucky that this happened now. You're most likely still covered under warranty. Contact Acer support and arrange a swap. If your pc works okay with another monitor there's no point in troubleshooting further. Get that monitor switched before the warranty runs out.

Computer monitor becomes distorted after boot up.


Hi,

Download and install the correct driver for the monito as well as the deiver for your video card, if the video is onboard, you may need the motherboard and AGP driver as well.
You will probably need to boot in Safemode to do this.
Good Luck.
