Screen colour distorted


Your monitor needs to be replaced more than likely.

Try using another monitor to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor shows the distorted colors, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

FIX SCREEN RESOLUTION


Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.

I have bad quality image, distorted


Hello and thank you for using FixYa Top 3 things that could be causing the problem.
  1. The monitor itself is bad
  2. The video cable is bad
  3. Your video card is bad
Try swapping out monitor with a known good one if you have a spare or purchase an new (If this is not the issue most store will allow you to return them, ask your local retailer)
If you are still having the distortion replace the video cable that plugs from your computer to the monitor (If you end up buying a new monitor it will come with a cable)
If you have done this then I would replace your video card. If you are using on board video (Remove your computers side panel, now compare where the video cable plugs in to the inside of your computer. If it the plug is going into the large circuit board then you are using on board video these can't be replaced unless you replace the entire motherboard(large circuit board)
So it would be cheaper to buy a video card If your computer was purchased before 2005 it should have an AGP graphics slot looks like the on in this picture http://attachments.techguy.org/attachments/106708d1179977181/motherboard-agp-slot.jpg
If it was purchased after 2005 then you should have a PCI-e slot http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0c/PCI_und_PCIe_Slots.jpg/800px-PCI_und_PCIe_Slots.jpg
You can purchase a video card from your local retailer or online http://www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com
Here is a link to a video on installing a video card

Monitor freezes up with multicolor wording or distorted images


Sounds to me like a few possible things...

1) Bad connection to the monitor, check the cable connection, if you see or suspect any damage, buy a new monitor or test with a friend's monitor.

2) Video card could be bad, if it has a video card, you could simply buy a new card to see if it will fix the problem. If the video port is attached to the motherboard (meaning onboard video), the motherboard could be damaged.

3) The motherboard could be bad. Sometimes fried motherboards will garble the screen like this on bootup.

My Gateway CX200 Laptop monitor is getting darker with a pinkish hue to it. is it my LCD display or the inverter chip or what?


Most likey, bad news im affraid, its the screen just going bad. Usually theres nothing that can be done. You can try reseating the ribbon cable and see if that improves it, but most likely it wont, they usually have only so many operating hours before the crystals or plasma goes out, depending which it is. Plasma usually goes out quicker than LCD.

Try finding a replacement on Ebay or online somewhere.

Good luck.

P.S. im asuming of course that you know a little about what you are doing and it isnt something like the display settings or contrast.

Monitor distortion


Hey edwardaaron,

If you are encountering any kind of visible distortion on your computer monitor, there are a couple of things that I would suggest.

First, if you have a cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor, you may want to try manually degaussing the monitor. Whenever a CRT monitor is in use, it slowly builds up a magnetic charge that can interfere with its operation. Degaussing then, is the process by which CRT devices rid themselves of this excess magnetic charge. This is normally done whenever a monitor is first turned on, but many monitors will also have either a button on the front control panel you can press or an option in the main menu to perform a manual degauss.

In many cases, the degauss option will be marked with a horseshoe or magnet-shaped picture. Once you've selected this function, you may notice a metallic-sounding "twang" noise, followed by one or two "clicking" noises as the image on the screen is reset. Keep in mind that images on the screen may appear to vibrate and color may distort for a few seconds after you do so, but this is a normal part of the degaussing process. The screen should return to normal after a few seconds.

Second, interference can also be caused by placing your computer speakers too close to the monitor. Many speakers will produce a magnetic field of their own, which only adds to the magnetic field generated by your monitor. In this case, repositioning your computer speakers should help minimize the problem.

If degaussing fails (or you don't have a CRT monitor), you may wish to then test the cable connections to your computer. In some instances, simply replacing your monitor cable will resolve these types of problems.

You may also be encountering a problem where your monitor is simply set on the incorrect refresh rate. If the refresh rate is not correctly set, a monitor may display a "wavy" image or appear as if lines are periodically scrolling across the screen. Without knowing the exact make and model of your monitor however, I would not be able to provide any suggestions on how to change this setting - you would need to contact the manufacturer or refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions.

The worst case scenario would be if you are encountering an actual hardware failure. Both the video card and monitor can cause images to be distorted if they are not functioning properly, and even power supplies have been known to cause other components to sporadically malfunction. If you are unsure how to perform a hardware diagnostic, I would strongly suggest speaking with your local computer repair technician or a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
