Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
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.
