    Ok, so for some reason unknown to me the colour on my pc has gone all funny. Not sure how to explain it but the colours are all wrong and it's hurting my eyes cause I can't fix it LOL Please help! I have tried looking for something that came unplugged, nothing. I've tried restarting twice, I've checked my settings nothing is different.
    Thanks!

    Under the display settings, what is the colour quality and display resolution set to?

    It sounds as though the graphics drivers have become corrupted and need reloading.

    The settings have not changed, they are at medium 16 bit, 800by600 pixels.
    What should I do?

    I think you should start by telling us what the monitor is (make and model).

    At 800 x 600, 16 bit it sounds like we are dealing with some quite old hardware here?

    It is a new LG flat screen monitor. I took it off and hooked up a different monitor and the colour is fine so it's not my pc or any settings it is the monitor itself, just hoping I can find the warrenty at this point. It was only purchased in December.
