My colors its no good everythink shows more green its green everywhere

If your computer's graphics card is working ok and the monitor does the same thing connected to another computer and the lead from the computer to the monitor is tight, there are no damaged pins in the connector, the most likely problem is that your monitor is failing and it may be cheaper to consider getting a new one.
Absence of red and blue colours, which, with the green give you your picture, indicate a failing component in the monitor.

I've installed Cossacks(the Art of War) in Windows 7 Professional.HP-Pavilion Slimline s5710F. The game come up with double vision still can't play everythink runs together.


Check the games video reqirements on the box or folder it came with.Sounds like your resoulution is off on your pc.

Go to control panel,personalize,display settings,Set the slider all the way to the right.Hit apply then reboot.

If this does not help check that the video options in the game itsself are set to you monitors settings.You may also need to update your video device drivers.

If we power on the monitor the led blink and off imidiatly.all components in power supply is very good what is the problem

sravan74, You must also inspect with magnafying glass or low power microscope (10 to 20x) the solder joints of all the components soldered to the board!!! Look for dull, frosty looking connections and very fine "circular hairline fractures" around the leads of all "through-hole" and "surface-mounted" components. Report to me what you find. 12fixlouie

Monitor says "Out of Range"

This normally happens when display resolution is changed to higher resolution and cannot be compatible/displayed by monitor. Either plug in another monitor and lower down resolution or Press F8 and go to advanced boot option and start your computer in safe mode and try changing display resolution. If it still doesn't works and you have the drivers for you display adapter (video card) then uninstall display adapter from device manager by booting in safe mode. Once you get to normal boot mode reinstall drivers for display adapter.

Have 21 inch monitor dell st2210,mi problem is everythink desapere from the screen and later come back,lock picture is in the center of the monitor al the time i have 1 year waranty i call dell speak to...

Connect the monitor to some different computer, e.g., a laptop, to verify that the monitor is working.
If not, take it back to DELL/STAPLES, and get them to check it out, or to exercise the "warranty" to get it repaired/replaced.

Most probably your monitor has two inputs, one digital and one analog. Using the monitor's on screen menu select the other input and you should see your picture.

Hannspree 19" HF199H LCD - Display is LARGE on monitor!

Try Control Panel - Appearance or Display- You can change how your 2nd display looks there.. Sounds like you have it set in Clone mode...(both displays show the same things)...See if you can reset the 2nd display resolution while keeping the laptop in its normal resolution. Not all machines can do this...but most recent ones should be able to.
