I have a touch screen monitor and only the top half of the screen loads ok. The bottom half is a white haze. The touch still works on the whole screen. The same half screen issue still happens when the touch monitor starts independantly of the PC. Any ideas? Connecting to a normal CRT monitor works fine.
You mean half of the screen is always white, or it's a noisy white? Even during boot screens? Does the OSD (for screen controls) show on that part of the screen?) A little detail would help determine whether it was the screen or your video card or its driver. The driver one is the easiest to fix of course.

Re: Touch screen half loading only
Try uninstalling the TS from the control panel-system-devices (hardware).
Reboot and reinstall the drivers when asked.
The driver must match the OS.
The TS may be defective, does it operate proper on another Pc?
So many things did affect the display of TS, one may be you use driver to intall TS on your system, driver may be corrupt, or some thing pressure affects the display of TS, try it in another system apart from the one you are using if everything is fine, this means it is from your system, if not it will be from TS itself, so best suggestion is to find technician nearest to check for you

Try the monitor on another computer first, and check the security and condition of the VGA lead pins.If any are bent or missing that could be the problem. A missing pin will account for part of the signal not being sent from the graphics card to the monitor and could give the blue tinge. Loose connections are also culprits here. Check there are no strong magnets neat the monitor. Try a different monitor on your computer.
After that, I think that your monitor could be failing.
If you have already checked the connections from the screen to the PC, check that you have a power light on the screen. (Green or Amber). If no light, check power to screen. If it is amber, then the screen is not getting a signal from the PC - recheck connections. I would suggest you try and connect the pc to a different monitor to check whether it is the screen or the PC.
If it is the same on another Monitor or if the power button is green on the screen, then the pc is not sending information properly. Turn the pc off manually by holding the power button on the bottom half for about 10 seconds. All lights should go off from it. Now turn it back on again and see what happens.
If you see loading windows and then goes black, do the following:
Turn off the pc (bottom half). Turn back on and as soon as you pressed the button to turn on, start tapping the F8 key until you come to "Windows Advanced options" screen. use the arrow keys and go to Enable VGA mode. Press the return key twice. If it loads to windows, then fine. If not, then you may have a problem with the display adapter.
try using a different monitor, borrow one if you have to, if the monitor works on your computer, then it simply means you need a new monitor. As far as the computer shutting down, it may be recording the bad monitor as an error in the loading process and automatically shutting down.
Touch screens are even more expensive that straight LCD panels. This repair may cost more than the original monitor. Why do you need another panel? Is the panel cracked or is the touch screen portion not working correctly?
