Question about HP 2159M Monitor
Hey so i plugged in my moniter and it looked perfect for about an hour when i turned it off for the first time. Upon restarting it the screen went through auto-adjusting and no matter what I do in terms of unplugging it restarting the machine installing new drivers the auto-adjust always saturates the screen in blue. Suggestions?

Sometimes that can be caused by a loose or bad video cable causing the monitor to re-adjust for the video signal. You could try resetting the monitor by unplugging it for a few hours and re-plugging it again too. Also check with HP and see if they have any warranty, extended warranty, repair notice, free repair/ replacement.

I have had the same problem and now suspect that cleaning fluid from when I cleaned the screen may have seeped in. After a number of things I did over a period of 2 weeks the problem went away completely.
1. You may be able, if that is your problem, solve it quicker with a hair dryer at a distance (no melt down!)
2. Run HP diagnostics and clean the registry
3. Re- install drivers
Like I said I think 1 is the most likely. I went from every couple of seconds to completely solved.
Another possibility is that an MS update may have caused the problem and then another solved it.

Right click on your desktop, go to properties, and navigate to the settings tab. There, try to set the monitors resolution to the largest available. That should fix your problem. If it doesn't just try some other resolutions until ou find one that works. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Something seems to be triggering it to restart, these are some of the things you can try. Make sure your video cable and power cord are secure on both ends. If you have video card make sure it is secure in its socket. Try plugging the power cord into a different outlet. Try it on another computer if possible. If you find nothing with these ideas I would send it back if it is under warranty the power supply seems to be dropping out.

Might be a loose connection, a bad cable, or a bad video card. I'd try the monitor on a different computer--even a laptop. Should give you an answer as to what's wrong. With the laptop, reboot it with the video cable attached.
