Question about PC Desktops

Change colour settings on harddrive. I bought a new monitor thinking that was the problem but the colours are still wrong with the new monitor!! So I am presuming it is a problem with the harddrive? Colours are incorrect- for example pink is shown as blue, etc.

Hi there, I can help you with that.
It's not your hard drive at all. It's a problem with your display settings. Your probably running Windows, so do this:

Right click your mouse on the desktop. On the menu that drops down, find Properties and left click your mouse on that. In the box that pops up, you will find little tabs at the top. Find the tab that says Settings and left click your mouse on that tab. On the next screen that you see, look towards the bottom on the right hand side. You should see a button that says Advanced, left click your mouse on that button. On the next screen, you will see more tabs at the top. Look for the tab that says color management. Left click your mouse on that tab and adjust your color settings to suit you.

Let me know if you need any further help. You can leave me a comment. If you liked my answer, you can let me know by voting accordingly, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Display problems as such that you have describe are not related to the hard drive. The hard drive is a storage device that saves your settings of the OS, as in this case display configurations. What you save,is what you get displayed.

Your described concern indicates a display problem. Suspects would be:

  • if you are using CRT type monitor, then one of the color is missing or faulty. This could either be one of the color drive transistors (IC) or the video cable has one wire cut;
  • if you are using an LCD/TFT monitor, then it would be the video interface/mainboard;
  • in some rare instances, it could be the video/graphics card/chipset (least likely).
Pls post back what type of monitor you are using. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

It can be one of two problem.
1) The monitor might have gone bust.

    But since the problem is stil existing after the replacement of the monitor. This issue is ruled out.



    2) It can be a problem with the colour settings on your system or missing drivers for your graphics card/motherboard/monitor.



    - To advise a solution for the problem 2, Please let us know the operating system you are using,PC details.

The colour is not right on my monitor and I can't adjust it. Is it likely to be the monitor or something internally with my emachine 820?


Go to "Display" in your control panel. This opens a window where you can change the resolution of your monitor. Set it to the highest resolution your monitor will accept.

I've lost the red color to my computer. How can I fix it?


If you are using a CRT monitor and you have lost the colour RED, then whats known as the colour gun is faulty. It can be replaced at a cost. However you might find it cheaper or economically sound to purchase a new LCD monitor.

Remember to also check your screen by pushing the menu key on it.

In the menu, under colour management ensure that all colours are set to 50%.

If it is then above colour gun theory is correct.

All the best!

Hi, MY grandson was left alone with my PC when i returned the colour and contrast on the monitor was very dull also the menu language changed to japanese. I have tried to set it manually but nothing...


I think you know the first thing you did wrong!
Try booting into safe mode using the F8 key on startup and then do a system restore back to before your grandson visited. You could also choose "boot to last known good configuration"
Then password protect the computer and don't let him know what it is!

I see a gray screen only when I turn thePC on. I connected my monitor to my acer extensa laptop and still stayed gray.


The CRT monitors use RGB signals for displaying colours, most of the monitors dos'nt have colour setting option, This situation can only arise whenever the RGB signals are equally of the same strength, this is an indication that the chroma section responsible for colour distribution of your monitor is now working properly, you need to examine the RGB circuitry of your monitor, one more possibility is the data cable (VGA) has been tampered internally.

My pc just bought will not work


if you computer has a graphics card you would find a connector on the bottom, there will be two places where you can connect you computer to, one would be on the middle and the other would be near the bottom the connector woudl look blue in colour, make sure if you have a video card installed, you would see a blue colour port near the bottom and it would be horizontal, connect the monitor video cable to that port and this issue would be resolved

Colors are way off on my screens


umm, im not trying to state the obvious but, have you checked that the colour setting is 32 bit colours (right click-properties-settings-colour quality)? also make sure that the correct drivers are installed for your monitor and GPU (graphics card). check that they are also up-to-date. also check the actual screen menu and make sure the colours are good, fidle around with them (RGB) until they are better (last resort!!!). about the printer...i have no idea!!, check out the properties when coming to print to check its not set as one colour, usually under the colour tab (for some odd reason hehe). check that the colours are equal and that certain boxes aren't ticked, i.e grayscale etc!. hope this kinda helps!
