    I have the same problem. I have occassionally been able to boot from a linux cd, but mostly it's a screen divided in to 3 colors that kinda are faint and then get solid. Even when looking at the bios settings the letters will be broken up sometimes. If I shake the laptop it seems to cause more breakup, so I thought something was loose. But it definetly seems like a video card problem, the hard drive checks fine, the motherboard seems fine. Any solution to this?

Your lcd screen is bad. It's either the lcd screen or the video card inside the computer, but most likely the screen. You can isolate the problem by connecting an external monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without the read and green tint then your video card inside the computer is good but your lcd screen is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same red and green tint then the video card inside the computer is bad.

It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

My viewsonic vx2025wm 20.1 lcdmonitorgoes green,sometimesyellow,then returns towhite screen


check your cable connection if the color changes.. as normally bad or lose display connection will cause this problem..
but if it turn to total white without any image.. then most probably the LCD monitor is faulty..
but there are some cases when your display card that is giving this funny problem.. if it get too hot.. check your PC display card whether the cooling fan is turning or jam.. this is the main cause the display card get overheat and give you funny display...

This could be a faulty CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Monitor color display problem


Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!

LCD Screen Problem on booting


Ok, when connecting to another monitor, be sure to use the Function Key, and press the appropriate F Key to enable an external monitor. Without doing this, you will never see an external picture.

If that picture is fine, then yes, you need to think about your video card, and I would start with updating the driver.

Erik.
