Having problems with your Gateway GT5058 Desktop PC ?

Gateway GT5058 Geforce 6100 lost red

\015 It's not the FPD 1960 TFT LCD because it and a tested VGA plug test out. This happened a year ago, accidentally did DSK Check, which partitioned off 30G harddrive, but allowed correction. Don't know how. Would cleaning connections inside help? I would like to have a Graphics card which allows for output to my TV's, but my local Wal-Mart, the only supply in the area, only has the GeForce 6200, and that ATI Wonder pro that Best Buy promo tricked me into has been non-funtional from the first week. Any dinasoar repair ideas?\015

Answers :

Yes.. Check to make sure your wires are in good working order, check for loose pins, and make sure there aren't any kinks / tears / breaks in the shielding for the monitor cable.

Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card, and that someone hasn't tampered with any color settings on the monitor / graphics setting software (nVidia allows me to adjust color for each individual color... i.e. red, green, blue.. )

Also, i have seen times where KVM's have caused the color to be off. even after removing the monitor from the KVM and testing a new monitor on the KVM, after detaching the KVM, and allowing it to reset (1 minute no power) then reconnecting it with all 4 PC's turned off, the issue went away.

To Recap:
1) Make sure monitor settings are at factory default
2) test the monitor on another PC, if good step 3
3) test different monitor on affected PC, if good, step 4
4) be sure your software settings work for your monitor, and all cables are secure, and free of defects such as kinks, broken shielding, broken wires within the shielding, missing / bent / broken / loose coonector pins.

If all abouve test show the monitor is good on one PC, and bad on another, replace your graphics card to see if this solves the problem, if so, your card may be faulty
