We recently had a power outage. After the power came back on I turned on my computer to find that my monitors colors were entirely off, i changed them back best I could then used the "Autotune" feature. This caused the color of the monitor to have a red tint, and moved the display over to the right side of the screen. Manually trying to move the display back does not work (it says its moved over as far as possible) I've plugged the monitor into other graphics cards to double check, but same result on all my computers. Any ideas why this could be happening?
Sounds like the power outage damaged the video interface could be damaged. You might have had a spike that effected the red input of the monitor. You can try to order a video interface, or like I suggest to others, look for the same monitor but broken on ebay and swap out the interface board. Chances are this will fix your problem.

If the device was plugged in when the outage started and / or when power was restored - it may have suffered a power outage related voltage "spike" (or instantaneous rise in voltage greater than it is designed to handle).
Unplug it for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If it fails to function you may need repairs or replacement. Try a different monitor on the computer before condemning it - it may be a problem with the computer's video card instead.
Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?
Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).
After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!
This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!
Power supply problems may have occurred as a result of the power outage .... check power supply with a power meter .... see if its outputting ... then check connection to the computer to make sure output is working
Depending on what caused the power outage, you may need to replace the power supply in the server. When outage happen and the power is restore. a power surge can destroy power supplies, especially if not connected to an UPS unit.
monitor has sustained damage from the power fluctuation's from the outage I would report it to your power company they are obligated to replace any damaged equipment that may be damaged because of their failure to provide non outage service and then go take the monitor to a repair center they can determine if the boards internally were hit with a power spike and damaged, meanwhile while you send the report to the power company you can either buy a new one and then submit the price for refund from the power company
