Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

2 problems, monitor color and update possible?

\015 My computer monitor is very sick. I will try to give some specifics. I have an old HP Pavilion, 14.3 free GB out of 37.2, with Windows ME. I know I need a new computer but am much too poor. First - My monitor colors are freaking out. Long ago it started with light gray horizontal lines. After time my screen turned a greenish tint. After about 4 months my screen turned a red. No it is quite ugly and I can't even see red print so many things to click on are red and i can't see them. Can this be fixed?Second - Old technology, Is it possible to install Windows XP on this computer if it is not a huge waste of money to invest? Many things today cannot be run on anything older than XP, including two Zunes in the house. \015

Answers :

Well it sounds like the color scanning chips in the monitor are going<have gone> bad. If you have access to another monitor I would hook it to your system and see. XP may run, depends on your processor speed and RAM amount, also graphics can be an issue in XP
