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

Everything is green the screen the pictuers the letters etc.what`s wrong i have a windows vista /acer


If you have a desktop computer, try connecting a different monitor, to see if your monitor is not producing all three "primary" colours (Red/Green/Blue), thus resulting in "mostly-green" colouring.

If you have a laptop-computer, trying connecting an external monitor, to see if you get the correct colours on the external monitor.

Maybe your computer is not compatible with Windows Vista.. Because the minimum requirements of Windows Vista you have at least 1 GB Memory, 2.0 GHz processor and have a separate Video Card of at least 512MB DDR on your computer. If your computer does not have that requirements try to change your OS with Windows XP..

Blacks have changed to blue on my PC Monitor


Can you check your monitor's device settings (on physical buttons on the monitor) and check for changes to the Hue or contrast setting(s)?
It sounds as if the hue or contrast has been adjusted slightly, just enough to be visible.

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


Hi,

To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
  • Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
  • hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
  • incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
  • it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Monitor 'drop out'


Ok, the problem with the monitor for programs is actually the Vista Aero. Found out that even though many programs are Vista compatible they do not run with Aero-used program compatibility wizard which reverted Aero to Windows Classic and all is well. Not sure if similar problem is affecting web pages though.

Hi Guest!
Try pressing the keys Control, Alt, down arrow. Then try the Control, Alt, up arrow. This flips the image on a lot of Nvidia cards. Good Luck.
