Display loses color after start up turning black & white

The Windows screen is the normal windows blue/ green during start up and then for a couple seconds it starts up with color on the display [desktop, icons, etc. all in color] before switching to black and white and staying that way. Is the video card going bad?

I wouldn't think that was the problem I would check the settings.

go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Download the latest driver version and try that. Vista has a funky hibernation problem.

SOURCE: hp pavillion dv9000 won't boot. tries to start,

There is a Limited Enhancement Program that includes this model. If you are in the US call 1-800-474-6836. If you are outside US check the HP.com website and search for the Limited warranty enhancement Program.
This is normally a video chipset issue that is embedded in your MB. If your notebook is part of the program, hp will shoulder the repair cost for the MB replacement.

Black background web pages


Step 1:
Web Pages That Do Not Display All Colors

Web pages that do not display all the appropriate colors have either a browser-related issue, monitor display problem, Windows comparability glitch or incorrect web pages Internet and HTML settings. More than likely, a setting dealing with your contrast ratio in Windows is the culprit. Once this issue is resolved, your web pages will display properly and accurately like they were designed to from the start.

Click on "Start" and navigate to the right pane and click on the "Control Panel." Click on "Ease of Access." Click on "Ease of Access Center." Click on "Set Up High Contrast" (one white and black box overlapping each other.) Check or uncheck "Turn on or off High Contrast when left ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN." Click on "Apply" and close the Ease of Access Center. Press "ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN" to turn on high contrast. Open your browser and go to a website to determine if color is restored to normal.

Screen is showing all black things red


It sounds like your screen might be going bad. Normally there is no setting you need to be doing to adjust colors on your screen. There are some settings when you click Start/Control Panel/Display to look at your display settings, but these normally just control the color around the windows. For example the normal or default color for the strip that is at the top of your internet browser is blue but you can change it. I would say that when you boot your machine if the colors are not what they should be normally during the boot process, then your screen is going bad. You might try Opening a Word Document then type words such as Black, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, etc. on different lines in the document. Then highlight the word and change the font color to match the word. This might let you see if your colors are true colors or if the screen is bad.

Need to know what wire colours r what on the harness of a Clarion DXZ635MP CD player lost manual


Your ground wire is going to be black. Your normal wire colors are violet and violet/black, green and green/black, white and white/black, last but not least you have grey and grey/black. Those are your speaker wires. Solid blue is usually to power your antenna, and blue/white is for your amp turn on lead. Those two wires are approximately .5mV of power, and you can actually use either one to turn an amp on. Speakers: normally your solid color is positive, while the black stripe is your negative. As for which one goes to which speaker, left front is white, right front is gray, left rear is green, and right rear is violet. Hope this helps.

I have no idea why you would go from an agp to a pci. Agp has like 8x the banwidth of pci.I'll assume the agp slot went bad. If you can get into bios before you lose the display,change the display from agp to "init pci first",save & re-boot. See if that works,then when in windows install the drivers right away. If that doesn't work, during boot at the splash screen, press f8 & select "safe mode" with networking. This should let you get into windows so you can remove the old agp drivers,then re-boot into safe mode again & install the new drivers. Then re-boot normal & you should be ok. If not,that board has a big problem.

Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.


If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.
