Having problems with your Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop ?

Screen has a blue tint - no red

\015 Have replaced the monitor, checked the connections, even unplugged them and then plugged them back in. At different times it has worked with color (turning off and then back on worked for a while, a game that changes the color settings sometimes kick starts the color back to working)\015

Answers :

Sounds to me either your video card is bad if your computer came with one or if your video card is integrated into the computer then the motherboard is bad.

Basically if you have a video card, it will plug into either a PCI or AGP slot and alot of times they overheat or the fans fail on them. If thats the case you would replace the video card. If you have integrated video on your motheroard meaning you don't have a card and you plug the monitor into the motherboard video connector then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
