    Just to add. The tech's final note that it is probably the monitor looks correct. I hooked up a cloned monitor and the colors are correct on the clone - which seems to tell me that it is the monitor.

    I have this issue as well, I tried to mess with the contrast and brightness that didn't do anything. I did see the color flash back to normal twice but screen seems to be stuck in the bluish tone.

    My screen always lose it's red color after It's been on for a while. Occasionally it will switch back on and off again. It generally goes back to normal if I restart the computer and give it a rest.

Is it a greenish blue?..... if so you have lost your red signal..... check your monitor connectors for bent or broken pins...... usually happens after swapping cables or monitors on a computer..... you could also have a bad cable or monitor..... is the monitor a CRT or a flat panel.... loss of one color is very common on CRT monitors, and could be a bad solder connection on the CRT driver board, or a bad video chip..... flat panel LCD monitors don't usually lose a color, although it is possible.... the most common failures on LCD flat panels is total power supply failure (no power at all) or display matrix driver failure (colored stripes across or down the screen), but a cable failure is also possible, like i said above, check the connectors for bent or broken pins..... there are 3 rows of pins...... at the widest side of the connector, there should be at least 3 pins next to each other on that row (sometimes there are 5), the middle row should at least have 3 consecutive pins as well (and again, there are sometimes 5) the last row (the smaller side of the connector) should have at least two (but sometimes all 5) pins in it. the first row and last row of pins should line up vertically, and the middle row is offset a half a space, so from top to bottom, the columns of pins make a zigzag...... if the connectors are alright, then your most likely problem is the monitor..... if another monitor works on the computer, it's the monitor..... if another monitor has the same problem on this computer, then it is the video card (or the motherboard's video output, which is fixable by installing a video card)

Xfx video card stop displaying on monitor. I use xfx motherboard connector instead and display is OK

This is a BIOS problem, you have to boot to BIOS config menu, do it by pressing f1 or f2 or f10 on boot splash screen, browse the menus and find an option like 'init display first' or something like that, set it to Pcie or AGP, depending on your motherboard, reboot and voila!, have a nice day

Monitor has bluish tint

You should check to make sure the cable is tight at both ends (back of the computer and back of the screen). If it is, and you've already replaced the monitor, it's probably the video card in the computer. If your computer is still on warranty, I would suggest contacting the manufacturer or the retailer where you purchased it. If not, it looks like you'll need a "PCI-Express x-16" graphics card, which you should have professionally installed.

Video loss

Have you checked your BIOS settings in regards to Graphic/AGP controls? If it is NOT set on auto (which will read a AGP or PCI graphics card automatically over the on board) it will always look to the onboard card or known PCI Graphics card for the video output. Check those settings and reboot. Remember to save the bios config prior to changing anything.

You haven't brought up a blue screen error so we must assume you installed the drivers properly. The BIOS control of the AGP and graphics is most likely the problem.

My monitor has a green hue that will not go away when I adjust the colors in the screen. The blue adjuster doesn't seem to do anything. When I use auto adjust, It looks amazing for about 5 seconds then...

If you have another PC try it on the monitor, see if the problem persist. I f it doesn't check your video card's control panel. Some configuration there, may be overriding your monitor's. If you have an nvidia based card run the "optimize my display wizard"

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.

You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

Bright yellow

I can't imagine a setting that would cause this - It sound more like some sort of fault with the projector's blue LCD panel. (The image is created from a mix of red, green and blue light. If you loose the blue, everything will look yellow.)

Is it capable of showing any shades of blue?

Using any graphics or photo-editing software, create a solid blue image (R=0, G=0, B=255 in your colour settings) and if possible, display this full-screen. Is there any output from the projector at all when you do?

If not, it sounds like it need a professional repair.

Bluish screen

Before spending money on a new video card you might not need. Check all your connections. I have a monitor built into a Radio station announcer's desk and it goes blue at switch on. All I did was reposition the input cable and problem solved. It was caused by a fractured wire or two in the output cable and moving it made them make contact again. It's worked for 4 years now, if it really dies then I'll have to pull it out and replace the whole cable. Check that all your inputs and outputs are firmly plugged in and any securing screws are finger tight. But remember the old tech's saying "If it's gonna go wrong it'll usually be in the first few weeks" BMW
