It sounds like you're going to need a new VGA/DVI cable. (from PC to monitor)
I suggest you try another one, then post back here if it doesn't fix the problem.

I hope this helps,

    That actually depends on the connections on the PC and monitor.

    There are actually 3 connections.

    There is VGA, which is the analogue connection. It is usually a four-sided shape, with a bunch of pins in it in rows. The connector is usually blue.

    Then there are DVI connections. DVI-I connections from your PC can connect to VGA connections on a screen via adapters. DVI-D connections can only connect to other DVI ports.

    DVI connectors have rows of pins, then nothing, and a square with a couple of other connections next to rows.

    To find out which DVI type your PC/monitor has you will either need to consult the manual or post the models of your graphics card and monitor here.

    If not, I'll be happy to help you further.

Might be from a false black widow, clean it with soap and water really good, helps to suck out poison and pus with a vaccum for 2 seconds, antibiotic cream after cleaning, Vaseline will help keep crud out if you don't have antibiotic cream. keep elevated if it swells up, see a doctor if it gets infected or if it grows. Look at Google images results to compare her reaction to other spider bite wounds.
Check Mayo Clinic web advisor for confirmation of this.

My legs are tingling /tired when I lie down at night. upon getting out of the bed and walking about 15 steps the tingling starts to go away. could my 1-2 inch thick mattress pad be a problem like smel

Tingling in limbs is usually due to poor circulation. If the pad is pressing on the leg blood vessels then that effects circulation. Try to sleep a few days with a pillow under your legs so that feet are slightly elevated. Consult your medical practitioner to confirm no physiological issues.

Problem with the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector (when recieved) - No red, constant yellow tinge and constant lines.

It is because the xbox 360 is set to 60hz, change it to 50hz and it will be clear like it's meant to be. However, some 360 games are 60hz so for those games the quality is not good.

Dvd player plays with yellow tinge

If you are using a scart connection, check that it is plugged in fully & straight, also check for bent or missing pins.

Sounds like you have no green input.
