Problem with the colour output on my graphics card

Hi, I've had my computer for just over a year. I recently moved house & right after the move when I set my computer back up it wouldn't display the colour red. I have changed the monitor to confirm that that isn't the problem, but still no red. Any suggestions?! My card is a NVIDIA 7800 GTX fitted on a PCI slot.

    I have Nvidia gforce 4 MX 440 with AGP8X and it won` t show red color.
    I own just one monitor and two computers and because of that i have to switch cable monitor from one pc to another because my other monitor was broken .
    On my other pc on which i have some other graphic card picture is perfect so
    I know that my monitor is not in question.
    Anyone know how to fix this problem or I can throw my graphic card away and buy new one .
    PS : Sorry if my english is not perfect. I hope u understand my problem : )

    I have the same problem this might be a necro'd thread but hey alas i'm writing out of frustration. It happens infreqently enough that you think it's just a random glitch that fixes itself. Then comes back progressively worse. Starts for a few seconds at a time...can end up lasting hours or days. Blue-green fish bowl effect.

    I encountered the problem myself months before my warranty and extended warranty on my computer ran out...funny as i write this it is blinkin back to blue-green at this very moment. I have a Gateway 5228 with an integrated FIC motherboard with nVIDIA GeForce 6100.

    Spoke to both Gateway and nVIDIA both decided to play coy and give me the typical "Pro Service" run around. Replace the wires. Replace the monitor. Get a new Graphics Card.

    It's a bad GPU from nVIDIA on FIC boards and all others they've been attached to. Their own stockholders (nVIDIAs) are suing over the possible ramifications of using low-quality parts they knew about for months before mine and many others computers were purchased and yet still let them go to the shelves for consumers to buy.

    I've tried each of the "Lets make you think you've done something to fix it till your warranty expires" solutions they given to me as advice, nothing has worked.

    If you still have your warranty take the ****** back to where you bought it or have them replace the motherboard under contract. They wanted to resolve my claim with the Better Business Bureau by having me purchase a new motherboard from them for 400 bucks. Not happening.

My friend had the same problem on his pc. We tried everything but no setting could fix the problem. Check your vga connector. Where it connects to your graphics card. One of the pins might be bent. If one of them is then just take some pliers or a knife and bend it back carefully. That might sort out your problem.

Hope this helps.

- Please check the lead between the graphics card and the monitor if you didn't change this when you substituted to the other monitor. -

My pc just bought will not work

if you computer has a graphics card you would find a connector on the bottom, there will be two places where you can connect you computer to, one would be on the middle and the other would be near the bottom the connector woudl look blue in colour, make sure if you have a video card installed, you would see a blue colour port near the bottom and it would be horizontal, connect the monitor video cable to that port and this issue would be resolved

Dead monitor

Make sure the monitor is connected to the right video graphics card. This will happen if you are using the wrong one. Because at one time someone added another graphics card. Move the computer and put the monitor cable back in the wrong port on the back of the computer.
