Hi everybody,

I've just installed a new LCD monitor on my PC and after actually getting a response out of it finally got it working. Then for some reason (I think due to a wierd Windows update) the display went an interesting shade of pink. I've tried changing my colour settings and can get a near white out of the monitor (the manufacturers website doesn't have any relevant drivers). I've also tried the monitor cable and the temperature settings on the monitor itself all to no avail. Ideally I'd like to get it so that I didn't have to have any filters in place so that I can be sure that I'm seeing what I'm meant to be seeing. I'm sorry for the essay but I hope that the more information that I provide the better the answer. And lastly, thanks for anybody who can help.

Hardware:
Monitor: Acer 17" AL1716
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2.17GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte 7VM400M-RZ, x.x
Graphic Interface: AGP
RAM: 512MB DDR-SDRAM
Operating System : Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (Build 2600)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 at 256Mb

umm normally when you see colors that means video problems meaning improperly seated card bad video card or the lcd .. Try the monitor on another comp lets see if that fixes the pink.

I'm feeling a little stupid now it was a dusty connector on the computer end of the display cable. :-( thanks for the help either way.
