    I think my monitor isn't very old, i got i a few years ago and its a flat screen.
    I checked, my color quality is 32-bit i also tried out different resolutions and nothing changed.
    The monitor connection also seems to be good.
    is there anything else except that the video adapter is failing or the cable is going bad.
    Maybe it might help you, i have Nvidia geforce 7300 GS...

    I went on the nvidia page downloaded the newest driver, uninstalled my old one and installed the new one and nothing changed. If the cable is broken I just need to get a new one or? What if the video adapter is broken?

If You are using a CRT monitor (older Monitors similar to a TV) It may be time to replace it

Also you can try right clicking in a empty space on your desk top
go to properties>settings and check to see if your color quality is set to 32-bit

Double check you monitor connection

If all else fails your video adapter could be failing or you Monitor(VGA/DVI) cable is going bad

    Is there anyway you can check the cable and test it with another cable?

    you can also double check and make sure you drivers are up to date

    the driver is found herehttp://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_181.2...

    next would be to replace or test the cable with one that is known to work

    if the video adapter is going bad its time to replace it depending on what it will be used for these can be found fairly cheap

My monitor is all weird colors


Generally, this is caused by the loss of one of the main color inputs (Red Green Blue). Do the Following:
  1. Check the cable connections at both the monitor and the computer. Look inside the connector for any bent bent pins (there may be some that appear to be missing, generally that is normal) then reset the connections firmly and tighten the retainer screw snug, but not extremely tight.
  2. If that doesn't resolve, try the monitor on a different system and see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does, try a different cable. If the problem doesn't occur on another system, then the video card of the effected system is suspect.
  3. If issue occurs on multiple systems with known good cables, then the monitor will need replacement.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Faded colors


If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.
