This morning when I turned on my computer, the display was uncomfortably bright. Colors were washed out and light grey colors could not be seen at all. I tried adjusting the display settings on my monitor; it did not make a difference.

Since my freelance job depends on having a monitor that works, I rushed out and bought a new one. To my dismay I saw the same problems -- the display was still washed out. I plugged the old one back in, and after a few resets....the display was back to normal.

Then after a few minutes it snapped back to super-bright again!!!

What makes this extra-baffling is the fact that I have a Cintiq plugged in also -- it's a much older model and takes a larger pin connector. There are no color problems there.

I have no idea what the problem could be, if it's not the computer and it's not the monitor. It is not the VGA cable either because the new monitor was plugged in with a new one. What the heck is causing this??
