Yellow hue on monitor screen using a matrox millenium p650 pcie 128 even on boot up latest drivers installed no difference

    I have the 64MB version of this card. My screen has yellow discolourations along with blue pixelated regions wherever the mouse moves or screen updates. It was a nightmare, tried reflashing the card BIOS to various versions, using various versions of the windows drivers.

    The only "fix" I had was to completely disable hardware acceleration... Display Settings - Advanced Settings - Troubleshoot - Change Settings.

    Of course this makes video etc look rubbish, but until Matrox actually write some decent drivers this is best we'll get.

Try to adjust the colors using the monitors controls.

If that doesn't help, try it on a different computer.

If still not good, then it sounds like your monitor is dying.

15'' lcd energystar monitor problems


Try another monitor to verify the Graphics Card, if you have a graphics card, then another monitor cable. check for bent pins in the connectors, eliminate the hardware by changing each component/cable one by one. It may be the Graphics Card/Adapter is gone. Clean the inside of machine, overheating due to dust will cook components, GPU's get quite hot. Try some Electronic Contact cleaner spray on the Graphics Card connections, if applicable. Unplug before reseating the Graphics Card or cleaning, take precautions in ESD before handling a Component. If your Graphics is integrated, you can purchase a aftermarket PCIe x16 Graphics Card quite reasonably, : http://www.google.com/webhp?source=search_app#q=ati+amd+pcie+x16+graphics+card&hl=en&sa=X&tbs=vw:l,p_ord:p&tbm=shop&ei=ze05Uf25KJDO9ASIyYHYDw&ved=0CF8Quw0oAg&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.43287494,d.eWU&fp=bc2048b0dd90d6d4&biw=854&bih=580

Drivers for matrox millenium 650 under windows 7


Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

My pc (hp dc 7600 sff) giving yellow display during playing games & also not responding to well famous games. I tried my best 4 solving the problem but in vine.


Display Problems tend to be due to a few things. Mainly Hardware, and also software.
I would check the cables from the monitor to the computer. Make sure there are no bent pins. Maybe try a different cable.
Check the settings on the monitor. Maybe reset to default settings.
Check the drivers for the graphic card, that they are the latest ones.
Is the screen always yellow or only when playing games?
Is your DirectX software ok? Maybe re-download and re-install from the Microsoft website.
Does it happen on all games or just certain ones?

Computer acts as if it's going to boot up regularly but then stops and has a diagonal design on the screen


Try pressing F8 at boot time, then select to BOOT IN VGA mode, if it goes through to the desktop, then you will need to download and install the latest video drivers for your Video card, if that isn't it, then it maybe your Video card or monitor, you need to test the monitor on another PC, also you must test another monitor on that PC to isolate if it is card or screen. replacement of the bad item will be required.

Slimline if on, but won't boot up and there is no signal being output to the monitor


HP had a lot of problems with these PCs, the video card is on-board and seems to be failing a lot. They even had a recall on these, but unless it is still under warranty you are out of luck. I am currently working on one right now that has the same problem. I installed a low profile ATI 4600XT video card and still nothing. I went into the BIOS and somehow navigate to the right spot to tell the PC not to use the on-board, but instead use the PCIe. It was a real pain when the screen is having a sync problem and everything looks funky. But even after that it still tries to boot using the defective on-board. Hope this helps.

Pc won't boot up


If the Monitor Lights change from GREEN to YELLOW then it cannot detect a signal from the Video Card. If you have a different monitor, hook it up and see if it makes a difference.
If it does get another monitor...
If it does not make a difference. Open the computer and see if the monitor cable plugs into the Motherboard directly or into a video card.
Which ever way it is try adding another video card.

You need to check what kind of video card you need, AGP, EPCI, etc...

If it has a video card in one of the slots, remove it, try another one in the same slot.
If it plugs directly into the Motherboard add a video card to the slot nearest the power supply.

*NOTE: any video card you try to install will work with your monitor without drivers,
If you install the card and turn it on you will see stuff on the screen without installing drivers.
When you install an operating system, ie: Windows, Linux, Unix, etc., then you will need
to Install drivers.

How do i install a better graphics card


Start by Identifying what type of Card you need to buy. The Manual would be Extremely helpful in identifying What type of Video card slot you have. If that option is out you can look in the device manager and that should tell you what type.

There are many types For any modern Cards your Hoping for an AGP or PCIe Slot bare minimum you need a pci slot.

If you have a Vesa or ISA slot you'd be better off spending money on a new Motherboard & CPU

Once you know what type of card to buy PCI, AGP, or PCIe go out and look for the best card that fits your budget and that your PC meets its requirements

Most new Vid cards require a power supply connection or sometimes two or a special power supply adapter in addition to the available card slot PCIe comes in different speeds x1 x8 an x16 Make sure you have the right one that your card needs before buying. AGP likewise comes in 2 varieties AGP and AGP2 they have a different pin count on their edge connector so make sure what connector it has. PCI just about every semi modern PC has at least 2 PCI slots question is are the currently filled with other cards

Once you've purchased your card, you need to determine if you have an integrated video card.
This would be a video connection that is built into your motherboard.
If you do then you need to look up how to enter your BIOS to disable it (Usually pressing<Delete> or <F12> during boot up. Then go through and change the on board video card to disabled

press <F10> to save and exit
power down PC
Unplug power cord
Remove case cover and install new Video card
Replace case cover and plug back in
Boot up PC
Get Operating system up
insert the CD that came with the new card to install drivers and utilities (Another alternative is to go to the website for the GPU or card manufacturer and get the latest drivers) [ often times the drivers on the install disc are already outdated]

reboot ....... Congratulations your need Vid Card is install Now go play that game your dying to beat ;)

Hope this helps
