The Right Half of My Screen Is Grayed Out

The right half of my monitor is gray. It is not my video card. The right side suddenly went grey. I have had this happen to me before. I did nothing and it worked again. Also, it looks like two pins are missing on the connector. Thank you.

    When I boot up the left side on my screen is dark. It slowly brightens after a few minutes. Is this a sign of the monitor going bad.

It seems unlikely that two pins would be missing. They would more likely be bent down. If there's no bent pins, it looks like it could be a faulty monitor. Certainly, when TFT displays go, they tend to manifest the fault in a colourless or multicoloured bar consistently across a portion of the screen.

Samsung sa850t monitor right half of screen is solid blue


Hi,

I think your Display monitor cable damage, or may be your motherboard display cheap damage, or your display driver problem create.

First of all you check your display driver or reinstall driver. Sec think used external VGA card or check it. If not solved then your monitor display section damage. So contact good monitor technician.



Thanks..

I am trying to connect a second monitor a dell E173FP to my computer. I run Windows 7. My computer is not detecting the second monitor.


If you have a dual-head video card, you will need to go into display properties where you should see 2 monitors. One will be grayed out. You need to right-click on that one and tell the computer that it's connected. Then you can set it up.

On my monitor W1941S half of area (left side) changed all colours to darker then right side (which is o.k.), What is the problem? Thank you.


Press f-Engine button (it is on the right side of MENU button), select your desired setting, if it doesn't help, select the "X" (none) mode - the half dark screen will reset to full screen OK mode.

We are running a few computers (Dell 2400's, 4700's for the most part) and with the drivers downloaded from Dell's site, the screen shifts about an inch and a half to the left. Clicking auto position...


Go into the monitor menu and try to put the settings back to the factory default. Most video cards will also enable you to adjust screen. I'm sure you've probably attempted to do so, but if not you can right click the desktop and choose properties. In this box there will be an advanced tab where you can adjust settings to. The only other recommendations would be to ensure you have the correct drivers and that your video card is not the problem. Hope this helps.

Try clicking the auto adjust button on the screen. If this doesn't work it may be in demo mode, so click the fENGINEbutton on the monitor and make sure it is selected on the normal setting.
