    My screen is displaying in negative. 

  • joanclynch Jan 11, 2009

    All of the colors are reversed

  • joanclynch Jan 11, 2009

    It loaded with the same negative display

  • joanclynch Jan 11, 2009

    There is no yellow triangle or question mark either.

    There are no yellow triangles or question marks. :(  Is it something I can do myself? ( replace the video card)

  • joanclynch Jan 11, 2009

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it.

    That's not good. Just to make sure- there were no yellow warning signs in Device Manager? If not, I'm leaning very heavily towards a bad video card. This would apply to a card or an onboard video as well. The good news is that video cards are relatively inexpensive unless you want a high-end card for gaming. Let me know. I'm a-waiting!

    Okay..first let's make sure the video isn't the problem. Start your computer in Safe Mode by power cycling (shut down and restart) the pressing F8 repeatedly as it boots up. This will take you into the screen that gives you the option of going into Safe Mode. It will load with minimal drivers. If the color comes out normal- albeit in a larger, less appealing resolution- we know there is a setting that needs to be changed. I also recommend looking at the Device Manager for anything with a yellow mark next to it. Right click My Computer, choose Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. Check Display Adapters or Monitors. If all is normal, there will be no yellow triangle or question mark. Get back to me and let me know the results.

    The problem seems to have been cut off at the title. Can you restate the nature of the problem?

Okay. It seems that although you have a video problem it's not completely dead so you can at least see something. The good news is it takes all of about 5 minutes to install a new video card. When you open your case, you'll see some long slots that are empty. There are a couple of white ones. Those are known as PCI slots. Depending on the age of your PC, you'll have either an AGP (probably not) or a PCI Express slot. You'll need to know which one you'll be using so you buy the correct one. If you look up the specs on your PC at the manufacturers website, it'll tell you. If you're unsure, tell me what it is and I'll let you know.
As for installation, put in the cd that comes with the card first and install the drivers. It's fairly automatic. Next turn off the PC and put the card in the slot. Plug your monitor cable into the new card and power it back on. Good to go!

Screen flashes colors


The issue (flashes" colored screens) you're facing could be related to drivers and could be resolved by updating the display drivers. Without the correct driver, the hardware or device that you want to use won't work properly.
Also refer to:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly
Let's try to boot the computer in low resolution mode and check the issue status.
Low resolution starts Windows using your current video driver and using low resolution and refresh rate settings. You can use this mode to reset your display settings.
Refer the section:
Enable low-resolution video (640×480)

Black and white or negative screen resolution in Mac OS X


A black and white display, or negative screen resolution, is an issue which can occur within the various Mac OS X system versions ranging from Mac OS X 10.3 to Mac OS X 10.6.

It can appear as an anomaly which can leave a Mac User dumbfounded, not sure what is going on.

At one time your screen is normal like this, but then somehow,

f5e9feb.jpg

the screen changes into this strange negative, inverted screen.

749233a.jpg


So how does this occur?

The answer is more simple than you think.

An inverted screen like the one you see in the screen shot above, is not actually an anomaly, or the result of some sudden strange happenstance. What's more, chances are, this occurred because of what you did.

Its an easy fix however, because the only way your Mac OS X desktop screen can turn into a negative or black and white resolution, from its normal color resolution, is if a setting within your Mac OS X system has been modified.

To return your screen back to the normal color resolution, follow these steps:

* Click on the Apple menu icon, located on the upper left corner of your Mac OS X desktop screen.

* From the drop down menu, select System Preferences.

* Within System Preferences, select the pane (in System Preferences, Apple references all icons as "panes") entitled "Universal Access".

9e2fb26.png
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quick Note About Universal Access:
The reason this System Preferences pane is known as"Universal Access", is due to the purposes Apple designed it for. If you notice the image for this pane above, this symbol for this feature, is similar to a placard or sign you would see on a car license plate, parking space, door or building, for an individual who has a disability or is handicapped.

Universal Access was designed to enhance features like Voice-over speech (your Mac talks to you), screen size, display settings, keyboard and mouse settings for those Mac users who are vision impaired, hearing impaired and /or physically disabled.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* For the next steps in the process:

Click on the Universal Access pane.
If you look in the screen shot, under Display, you will see that the current setting is "White on Black".

3c0ac8f.jpg


Click on the radio button entitled "Black on White"
and this is the window you will see:

80ee972.jpg

Back to normal!

042f88a.jpg

That is all it takes, to return your desktop screen resolution back to normal.

This is why you were suggested as the probable cause" for your desktop screen to go into Inverted mode. Chances are you may have been in System Preferences, clicked on the Universal Access pane, and in exploring settings, may have clicked the Display setting and the
White on Black radio button, causing the screen to go into
the inverted mode or change in gray scale.

Another theory could be that you may have accidentally pressed the Ctrl-Alt-Apple Command keys on your keyboard, combined with either < > keys, depending on if you were in process of' increasing or decreasing contrast on your Mac's screen or display.

The true purpose of the inverted screen mode or change in gray scale, is to aid Mac Users who may be sensitive to the bright normal colors, that you and I see on the standard Mac OS X display screen, due to poor or failing vision.

So now that your screen is back to normal, if you should see an inverted display, or screen that resembles a negative resolution, like that of a photo negative, you know how to correct this issue.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?


For Windows XP...

1.
Open Display in Control Panel.
2.
On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.
3.
When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.
4.
Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.

Screen is all splotchy


Make sure you've put the right resolution. Screeen gets blotchy mostly due to wrong resolution. Or if possible, re-install the display drivers.

If nothing of these is working out, then your LCD has got some bad pixels. Sorry.!

But, i hope yours will be alright with the right resolution.

No display on expantion vga port for projector


The problem might be related to your native screen resolution. The C702TU laptop has a resolution of 1280 x 800. Most projectors do not support this resolution and if you cloned the main display, your projector cannot sync at this resolution. Look for an option to output a second display )instead of cloning) within your display settings. If your projector is plugged into your VGA port and turned on, Windows usually detects the second display automatically. Change the resolution on the second screen to something like 1024x768 or 800x600. These resolutions are supported almost universally across projectors.

Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.

Monitor color display problem


Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!
