T6532 monitor screen faded

My T6532 monitor image suddenly looks over-exposed. Adjusting the screen settings - brightness, gamma, contrast - helped a little, but I'm concerned that the video card and/or power supply or worse may be dying. What should I do?

There are a lot of things that can cause this kind of problem. You might try swapping out the cable connecting the monitor if you have an extra, or if you're lucky and own another computer, you can try to use another monitor, or connect another tower to the monitor in question to see if another computer works better with it.

If you've determined that it's not the monitor or the cable, it's most likely going to be an issue with your graphics adapter. If you are not comfortable messing around with the interior of your machine, a shop could help you do further testing to see what needs to be done. Most likely, a new motherboard will be the solution, since your particular computer's graphics chipset resides on the motherboard itself.

As a final hint, I've seen a lot of Emachines with motherboard issues at my primary place of work. You might try contacting Emachines if the machine is less than a year old, since it would fall under manufacturer's warranty and you can get the board replaced for free.

White images too bright


Try plugging in another working monitor into the monitor output - if results are the same then the problem lies with your video circuits in your all in one. Hopefully it is under warranty - if not you are screwed because those all in one units have nothing but proprietary parts and are very costly to replace/service. If the external monitor works fine then the problem lies with the display or screen of your all in one.

you should not leave PC on for more than a couple days.

It may have gone into Hibernate and if there is a bad sector, (i.e. read errors,) when that is loaded into RAM, then that can cause many symptoms. Try to boot into Safe Mode, then if that works, Restart and use Normal mode.

This could possibly be a driver issue. Please disconnect all devices connected to the computer other than the mouse, keyboard and monitor during installation. If installation completes successfully, then you may reconnect the devices.

Your backlight could be failing or the inverter for it is bad. You should contact the LCD manufacturer for troubleshooting. Might be cheaper to replace however!

hi polly ... I assume you are using a CRT monitor ... if you are then the monitor is simply showing its age ... CRT tubes use a electron gun which over time looses its perfromance... there is really nothing you can do except to replace the monitor.... although if your graphics card has a gamma correction setting you might be able to improve the brightness but at a cost of other settings like contrast...
