First of all you can check the computer by connecting another monitor to it to see if the problem goes away...if so then the problem would be in the monitor. If not , then I would try to change the video grafics card in the computer(assuming you don't have built in video). If you have built in video on the mother board then you will either need to replace the motherboard or disable the onboard video and install a video card
One or two of your color guns are failing. On a CRT, there are three color guns, Red, Green, Blue. They work together to produce all colors in the spectrum. If the monitor goes all one color, it generally means at least one color gun is failing. The cost to repair far exceeds the value of the monitor or the price of a new LCD panel.
Need to download correct graphics drivers and then you will be able to change the options. If you already have up to date drivers then you need to Right Click on desktop and select properties and then click on the Settings Tab and change it from 16 color to Highest (32 bit). Oh, go to manufacturers web site to download drivers.
As i understand from the situation, Please do the following:
1. First confirm that the problem is with the monitor. You can do this by trying this monitor on any other CPU. If the monitor behaves Fine, the problem is with the Video Card (Nvidia in your case). If the monitor behaves the same way on other CPU as well, i recommend taking it to nearest service centre. Please Do Not open monitors yourself (Some CRT's may have a possiblity of electrocuting people because they can store a charge upto 25000 Volts in Capacitors). Better get that serviced by authorised people if it doesnt work on any other computer.
2. If the above monitor just works fine on any other machine, probably the problem lies with Video card adjustment.
Please Right click on an empty place on your desktop and click on Nvidia Control Panel. (or you can go to control panel and try to run the same from there).
you will see that Nvidia's video card utility will open. On the left hand side, you will find (depending on the model) 3 basic options.
1. 3D settings
3. Video & television
Expand the Display option and select "Adjust desktop color settings" on the extreme right on the top, you will find an option of "Restore Defaults." Click on that and close the utility. Check if that has resolved the problem.
If not, please try resetting all the options back to Default on the Video control Panel one by one.
I am hopeful that it will solve your problem.
Feel free to contact me if it doesn't solve. I will try to help you till it does.
Right-click on any open space on your desktop. Click on properties and the Display properties will come up. Click on settings and make sure the resolution slide is all the way to the right. And Color Quality is set to 32 bits on the small window.
Yes, the monitor is Vista compatible. A monitor is just a display device, simply showing you what's coming from the computer's video card. That video circuitry is what would need to be compatible with Vista.
If you are upgrading an older computer by installing Vista, you might need to be concerned about video hardware compatibility. If you are upgrading by simply replacing the computer with a new one, it will already be Vista ready. In either case, the monitor will be fine.
