Question about Computers & Internet
I have hp pavilion slimline computer. Loosing a color and is not monitor or monitor cable. Could it be graphics card or something else?
If you are sure that the monitor and cable are fine, then it is possible that the onboard video can be going bad. If you can regain the color while "jiggling" the cable at the connector to the computer and you are 100% certain the cable is bad, then this can indicate a loose connection of the plug to the mainboard. This is often caused by what is called a cold solder spot, where it has not adhered to the metals and thus causes a loose connection. If this is not the issue, then it is safe to say that perhaps the onboard video is going bad... assuming it is an onboard video since the unit is a slimline. If space permits, you can always add a video card and disable the onboard video.
