    Greetings,

    I am using two monitors here at work and one of them has a color problem: it's color tone is pink.

    I've tried using only this one monitor, and when I do so I do not have that problem; the color is good. Therefore I know this is not a problem with the monitor itself.

    I have replaced every cable, the adapter, and even the graphic card, and I still get this pink color.

    The drivers are up to date, and the graphics adapter is a 256MB ATI Radeon X1300 Pro.

    I've been having this problem for a while now and thought I would ask for help online.


    Thanks in advance for any help,


    Eugene

    Just to mention one of the monitors is plugged using a VGA cable through an adapter that goes in a DVI plug, and the other one (the one who's working) is a DVI cable. When I remove the adapter and try to plug my second monitor using a DVI cable, then the computer simply does not detect it (therefore why I used an adapter). The screen stays black. Now I believe the problem is more about the computer detecting the monitor than the color itself. Can anyone point me out to something?

    Thanks.

    Gave the computer one hell of a kick and the color fixed itself.
