This issue 99 times out of 100 is always caused by a short inside the monitor cable. The cables can be tight but that isn't the issue. Grasp the monitor cable at the DB-15 and slide it over your thumb at a 90degree angle. Also shake it it as you move along to find the bad spot. Alternatively if you have another monitor try swapping the two. If not, maybe you can work with a friend to see if the problem follows the monitor or the video card.

LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.


sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

Make sure that the monitor cable is fully inserted into computer receptacle. If all contacts are good, clean, and tight you may have to replace the monitor since repair is not cost effective.
