Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
Hi! My computer moniter's screen turned purple. My moniter is a CRT. I have a branded HCL pc
This is a problem with the video cards hardware or the driver itself depending on your card you should updaate your cards driver from the appropriate site,right click the desktop>properties>settings>advanced>ada... will then see the name and manufacturer of your graphic card
go to the appropriate website and download the latest driver,here are the three main graphic card manufacturers websites
other things to check are
1.make sure your graphic card is securely fitted and if power is required to the card,then check the power connector is securly fitted and inserted
2.try changing your monitors lead from the v.g.a connector to the d.v.i connector at the back of the card,the v.g.a. is a blue connector and the d.v.i. is a white connector,and the d.v.i requires a d.v.i to v.g.a converter
3.where applicable install any monitor drivers however these are rarely required
4.run the direct x diagnostic utility,press start>run>type dxdiag >press enter,then go to the display tab and run the "test direct 3d" test
5.finally check all cables are securly fitted
if after these tests and tasks you still experience problems then change the graphics card and run the tests again,if you experience more problems then a new video/graphic card is required
any problems let me know
good luck .......
