    So heres the problem, my graphics card recently went out, and since I haven't been gaming very much I just switched to the onboard graphics. When I moved the vga to onboard the computer stopped displaying any red. At first I just assumed it was the onboard graphics and a new graphics card would eliminate the problem so I didn't worry about it too much. I bought a GT 210 graphics card (bad buy) but it was locking up just after login, and after some research it seems to be a common problem with the card. While I was trying to get the card to work I was switching between onboard and the card the red would randomly start working. After I got a different graphics card (geforce 9400) the red still isn't working, but it worked with the onboard. I'm guessing its either some sort of loose/faulty connection on the motherboard that I was bumping or affecting while working in the computer, or the vga cable. I don't have a spare vga cable so I haven't tested that, and I have no idea what part of the motherboard could affect colors. Advice/thoughts/solutions?

    Check the pins on your monitor cable. See if you can borrow another cable or monitor to test if that is the problem.
