Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I have a G4 Silver Tower Mac......
Is it the monitor that is going or is it my Video Card that needs to be replaced?
Please HELP, Thanks a BUNCH, Carla
Bring it to a bestbuy let them test it, it could be either or, what are you seeing?

Tips for a great answer:
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand "display adapters", there should be a video car listed, go to "properties", (click the resources tab and see if there is anything in the "conflicting hardware list" at the bottom) to make sure there are no hardware issues" click the "driver" tab and click on "Roll Back Driver" It should prompt you, click Yes/Ok, restart your computer.2) -OR- You need to installed drivers for your monitor to check this,
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand the "Monitors" tab, Check to see if your specific monitor manufacturer's name and model are listed. If it just says "Default Moniter", "Default plug and play monitor", or "plug and play moniter" you will need to check the disk that should have come with your monitor, -or- the manufacturer's website. Install those drivers as prompted by the manufacturer.3) -OR- your monitor settings are incorrect, such as your screen resolution is set to something that your monitor does support, or your refresh rate is set out of range of your what your monitor supports.
This fix is quite different depending on your OS, so if its none of the above, please let me know, and I can give more specific advise.4) Also please note, that sometimes, if you install a new video card, drivers are compatible, everything else is correct, but your power supply on your computer is not large enough to support it, your monitor can flicker, cut out, cause your computer to lock and freeze.
