X2Gen MW19V Greenish display

I tried pushing the video ports in and screwing the screws in and even using a new video chord but the monitor still has a greenish display.

    I forgot to mention that sometimes my screen flickers back to normal and the image looks perfectly fine. When I start up my laptop the monitor works fine but than turns greenish but the screen on my laptop looks perfectly fine. I use the X2Gen monitor as an extension to my laptop screen.

Recent Hardware Changes. Corrupt drivers for any recently installed hardware can crash the system. To get rid of the corrupted drivers, do the following:

a. Uninstall all recently added hardware.
b. Try to restore the system to a previous restore point
c. Reboot the system and return to a previous stable configuration if possible
d. Remove all external peripherals (printer, cameras, scanners, etc) and connections until the computer returns to normal. 5. Bad video/graphics card. At this point, if your computer is still under warranty, its time to call for help. If not, you can get a computer geek to come to your house (it is cheaper to take your computer to their store) or try to fix the problem yourself.

a. Is AGP/PCI video card compatible with your operating system? If you are experienced with opening up the chassis and resetting cards, reseat the video card, and try again.
b. Check the pins on the cable connectors and see that they are not bent or broken.
c. Never attempt to open the monitor. Turn on the monitor and try to reboot the computer again. If this doesn’t work, go to Step 6.

6. BIOS – the Binary Operating System may be corrupted – Use of Safe Mode to boot system.

a. Try starting the computer in the safe mode. Restart the computer and see the point to which it boots up before you get the blank screen.
b. Press F8 as the computer starts to boot. (For HP and Compaq computers with VISTA, use F10, For HP Pavilions with XP or earlier version of OS, use F1). Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode and press Enter. Remember that NUM LOCK should be OFF for the arrow keys to function.
c. If Windows launches before you can choose the safe mode, restart computer and go to step a.
d. You can choose “Safe mode with command prompt” option if you know how to use MS-DOS
e. You can choose “Last known good configuration” to go back to the last known safe shutdown state.
f. If you have added any drivers or corrupted any files the last time you used the computer, the safe mode will help you get back to the state before the changes, when the computer was running smoothly.

7. BIOS – the booting software may be corrupted – Use of Recovery Console to boot system

a. If the recovery console is already installed on the system, one of the options you see while the system is initially booting up will be “Microsoft Windows Recovery Console”. If it’s not already on the system, it can also be accessed through the network during “command prompt with network” option in safe mode.
b. Recovery console can also be installed at the time of need from the CD-ROM. Go to the following link for additional info : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301645
c. Recovery console helps to Enable or disable services. If Windows informs us during boot up that a file is corrupted or missing, then we can use the Recovery console to copy files from a CD to the computer to repair the corrupted or missing information.
d. You can also recover the system by reconfiguring a service that may be preventing your computer from starting correctly. (FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, etc)
e. For a list of Recovery Console commands, search : http://www.microsoft.com/

Shaded areas on my X2gen 19 inch monitor do not Show up.


It sounds like the PC video color setting is at 16 instead of 24 or 32 bit color setup. You need to check the display properties setting on the PC (Right click on the desk top). Also try it on other PC and also check the VGA cable.

I have a X2gen MW19A monitor that will not display anymore. The green power button just blinks no matter what computer it is attached to. Any ideas on how to fix it or even how to open it up to see what is...


What kind of operating system ex. (Vista, XP, Win 7, etc.) are you using? Trying going into display settings. Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Display >Change Display Settings > Then click detect. If your computer cannot find it then there is a problem with the actual screen.

Please refer to the solution I just posted on the other problem posted in regard to this monitor.
--- Unfortunately, X2Gen has declared bankruptcy (see http://x2gen.com/) and there is no way to go back to the manufacturer for either support or warranty service. If you are still within a given time frame with either the retailer or perhaps through a credit card company, this would be your best recourse. My experience with this type of issue is that the hardware has gone bad. Particular with the nature of your problem, it seems that it is not a minor problem, and does not appear to involve drivers or other software-type fixes. If you could get a professional tech to repair it, the cost would most likely be more than replacement of the monitor. Sorry for the bad news, but I don't think there is a better solution.
--------------
Thankfully you have another monitor, so you are not left with no display device, but I am sure if you are using 2 monitors, there's a good solid reason and need for it. The other problem posted did not indicate that you were using 2 monitors, and so this presents one remote possibility. Try to switch the 2 out - move them between ports. If the "good" monitor continues to be good and the "bad" monitor still displays the same issue, I think that is absolute confirmation that you have a "nonnegotiable" hardware issue. If not, in other words, if you see something go wrong with the good monitor or the bad monitor improves upon the switch, there could be a graphics card/driver issue that we could work on.

Please post back if you need additional assistance, or this does not answer all your questions. Otherwise, thanks for using and rating FixYa! (Also, I would be very interested to know what does happen when you switch the two monitors... Thanks!)

Hi, I used to fix a monitor from Dell. There are 4 screws at rear panel and no screw at the front frame. If there is no visible screw, you have to look for "capped" screw holes (little covers that fit flush with the case to hide the screws). If you don't see these neither, this must be a tension fit case. So, just face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). This will be a challenge to open without breaking it. You'll need a very thin flat screw driver and wedge it into that narrow rectangular hole. You can use any prybar if you don't have screw driver. It is not too deep. You may stab something important inside and pry it. Once it starts to spread, start sliding it along the seem and you should feel the tension tabs start "popping" open. Continue to work your way around until it's off. Hope this helps you to open you monitor. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Tan

The only way to adjust the tilt on these monitors is to loosen the screws that attach the stand to the monitor. We had to completely remove the stand from the monitor to get to these stand screws.
