Yh, i reckon your graphics card is a bit messed. Right-click your desktop and go to properties. Go to the setttings tab, and change it to 32 bit, and also, change the resolution, to see if its any better. if it buggers up, wait 30 secs, and it'll change back.

Moniter background is pink instead of white.


Hello gladyshbrown,
If the background is the only thing that is pink, then this will be as simple as changing your background color. the process is different depending on the operating system you are using, but if you right click on an empty space in your desktop chose either properties, or personalize. then choosing desktop.
If however this is not just affecting your background, meaning everything has a pink hue to it then it is most likely a hardware problem. To test this you can change to a different monitor, if the pink hue is gone then it is most definitely the monitor. However if the problem is the same on both monitors, then that would mean that your graphics card has gone bad. Many Pc's bought from dell, or hp have both video cards, and on board video. If this is the case with your Pc, you can move the monitor cable from where it is connected now, to the identical connection on the back of the computer. If you do switch to an on board video, please turn off your computer before plugging it in. This way when your computer is turned back on it will recognize that you are using a different video source. Most computers will do this automatically, however if it does not you will need to go into the "bios(cmos)" and enable onboard video. The option for bios is given as the computer first starts up. The key varies but it will be one of the following f1,f2,f10, or delete.
Good luck!

I'm getting wavy lines on my monitor. When I go into the menu of the monitor itself there's no lines so I'm thinking it's something with the computer itself. Perhaps the video card is going bad?


That's possible. I've had people send monitors in for service because of lines or distortion, but since the lines don't show up when they print they figure it's the monitor's fault. A new video card fixes that. Or the monitor might be at fault.

Test the monitor with another computer. If you don't have more than one, get a friend to bring over a laptop. Except on Macs, the external monitor connector on laptops is a standard VGA type, so you can plug your monitor in. If there are still lines, you'll know it's time for a new monitor or to see about service.

If you need a new video card, make sure you get one that will fit your motherboard. There are different slot types for video cards (PCI slots in older computers, AGP slots in newer ones, and PCI-E in the latest versions). This page can help you figure out which you have if you don't already know. Once you get a replacement card, all you need to do is plug it in to the appropriate slot. The motherboard will detect the new card and start using it. (I'm assuming you'll be installing a card where there wasn't one before. Most consumer computers have integrated video and that's what you're replacing with a plug-in card. If your computer already has a separate video card, obviously you'll just swap the old one for the new one.) Also - this will sound obvious but it's amazing how often it's overlooked - you need to connect your monitor to the video connector on the new card. People sometimes plug their monitors into the integrated video connector out of habit. On some motherboards the integrated video still works when you plug in a new card, but on others the on-board video is disabled. Then you either have the same bad video, or none at all.

With a new video card, your display may look funny when you start Windows the first time. Until you install the drivers that come with the new card, the color depth and resolution settings may not be right. But with the right drivers installed, your display should be back to normal.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Green flashing pixels on all dark colours on my computer screen? they NEVER appear on light colours, just darker colours esp black, they move to fit whatever i have up, they tend to make straight lines or...


My suggestion would be to test your computer using a different monitor. You have to find out whether it is your monitor that is bad or your computer. If you use a different monitor and everything looks fine and you see no dots then you know the computer is fine and it's the monitor that is bad. But if the screen still show dots and lines even with different monitor then your computers video card has gone bad and needs replaced. I would not try to repair the monitor that can be dangerous.
Good Luck

My pc just bought will not work


if you computer has a graphics card you would find a connector on the bottom, there will be two places where you can connect you computer to, one would be on the middle and the other would be near the bottom the connector woudl look blue in colour, make sure if you have a video card installed, you would see a blue colour port near the bottom and it would be horizontal, connect the monitor video cable to that port and this issue would be resolved

Moniyor fault


How do you know the monitor is the problem? Try your computer with a different good monitor. If it has the same problem then the computer is at fault. If it works correctly then the monitor is at fault. Is this a CRT or LCD monitor? If it is a CRT monitor (with a big picture tube like old TVs) it would probably not be worth repairing. You can buy used ones pretty cheap. If it is a flat LCD monitor you would need to get a repair estimate and weigh that against the cost of a new one. Anything can be fixed but if repairs are more than new what would be the point?

Blue cast to screen


It is either your video card or the cable from the computer to the monitor. Assuming you used a different cable with the new monitor, then it is your video card. You'll need to replace it or, if it's onboard video, add one to your system.

Hi Colour on my Acer monitor has gone ? Initially everything went green' I've reset monitor settings and some improvement resulted - now the reds are palest yellow Any suggestions tom


most of such cases are not due to problem in monitors... they are problems caused by mother board's or the externally attached graphics/video cards... So in order to make sure which causes problem.. you can try to connect another monitor to your system.. or perhaps your monitor to another system...

If the monitor is faulty colored everywhere.. then the monitor has to be given for repair.. (you cant do it by yourself)
if the other way... any monitor connected to your sys is faultly solored.. then you have to change your video card attached to mother board...

hope this helps your situation..
