sry wat u mean


could you please type in real words and sentences. I'm a bit deft when it comes to translating that im stuff

If you are asking "Sorry, I do not understand what a crt or lcd is", then a crt is an old fashioned monitor with a cathode ray tube in it so it is about 15 to 19 inches deep, and an lcd is a liquid crystal display that is flat and about 1.5 inches thick

this is what I would do first....open the case and check all the fans...especially the one on your graphics card...clean it out with a small vacuuum or compressed air.

Does this happen right away when you turn your pc on? Or after a while.

Do you have a second graphic carf you could swap in afor a moment?

Can you hook up the monitor to a second computer?

sorry about replying so late umm i see it but its very difficult to clean with just a Q-tip because its in between the harddrive and something above it making it hard to reach, also i've only found one fan since i couldn't clean it i started to see my black screens return to PURE BLACK[b] unlike before with the red spots but the switch back and worth sometimes its black some times its reddish mmmm i had my fan hitting the computers fan you think it is the computers fan causeing the problem
