Vista SP 1 + second monitor: black and white

Hey,

I use 2 monitors on my computer with an 8800 GTS. Never any problem until yesterday when i installed the Dutch version of Vista SP1. Now my second screen is monochrome. Never seen that before. I fundled a little with the settings but nothing seems to help. Vista did give me a popup explaining that Vista might have too little memory to work 2 monitors in color... But that can't be it: 2 gig Ram and card has 640Mb so...

help plz :-)

    It's Windows Vista Home Premium. I have 1300Mb ram free...
    Little proggie that monitors this for me :-)

    I don't know why just now it fails :s

    Fixed it by updating the video driver. Mine were fairly new but Nvidia already had newer. Embarrassing really :s

    But THANKS for trying!!

    also check the color settings on the monitor

    To set the color depth for a display1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
    2. On the Monitor tab, under Colors, select the value that you want.
    The higher the color depth, the more realistic the image will appear on your display.
    3. Click OK.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

Many screens on one monitor!


Your monitor is malfunctioning and requires servicing. Unfortunately there is no software solution, and no monitor adjustment buttons will control this problem. Due to the high cost of replacement parts and service technicians, it may be more cost effective to buy a new LCD monitor. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(
