It's not your driver. It's the video cable from the computer to the monitor.

Move it around at both ends and your colour will return to normal.

Either replace the cable or find where it is happy and then hold it in that position with something.

It's a common fault to all monitor cables..and nearly always the red wire.

    No, there will be a cable that will run from the back of your computer to the back of the monitor. There will only be one cable doing this unless you have your power for the monitor also connected to the both.



    The cable will have a solid looking connecter on it, and have 2 twist screws to hold it in place at each end. Just move the cable around without removing the twist screws.

Ibm netvista 8305 61u audio driver windows 7 32bit?


The same model Netvista can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your Netvista, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

Hmm, have you gotten the latest video driver from the manufacturer?

I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.
