Problem with the colour output on my graphics card

Hi, I've had my computer for just over a year. I recently moved house & right after the move when I set my computer back up it wouldn't display the colour red. I have changed the monitor to confirm that that isn't the problem, but still no red. Any suggestions?! My card is a NVIDIA 7800 GTX fitted on a PCI slot.

Re: Problem with the colour output on my graphics card

My friend had the same problem on his pc. We tried everything but no setting could fix the problem. Check your vga connector. Where it connects to your graphics card. One of the pins might be bent. If one of them is then just take some pliers or a knife and bend it back carefully. That might sort out your problem.

Hope this helps.

- Please check the lead between the graphics card and the monitor if you didn't change this when you substituted to the other monitor. -

It may not make any difference, newer games rely on DX10 protocols and your chipset may not be capable. You could buy a new graphics card to fit your motherboard, It will be cheaper than a new computer. And you may be able to make your computer last you a few more years yet.

Fan problem with an ATI graphics card in a Philips PC

If only the fan is the problem, it can easily be replaced by someone who knows what he's doing. Unless you have a lot of experience with things like this, I do not recommend you do it yourself, as there is a risk of you breaking the card. I would suggest you take it to a computer shop and ask someone there to do it for you. If replacing the fan doesn't get it to work, the card is probably broken, and you will need a new one. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.

It most certainly sounds like a graphics card problem, especially since it's been working fine up to this point. You might also want to try a different monitor cable just to make sure. Although the components used in today's computers are much more reliable than they used to be they do still fail occasionally. Good luck.
