I am having two problems in viewing photos on my computer. I have an HomeXP and run a Dell Dimension 4400.

When I download photos from my camera to my PC, the photos are all dark and hardly visible. The need to be lightened up. When I download the same photos to my other two computers...all is OK.

Second problem: Whenever I copy photos from a CD or memory stick to this same computer, all of the photos have a red tinge to them. However, again, if I copy these same photos to another computer, they are just fine.

I am only having probles with photos...everything else in this computer views OK (so I don't think it's the
monitor. I have a Ultra VGA 1280 moniter (whatever that is?).

Thanks,
Tim

Is it only pictures or do other applications look to be off in color? I would first hook up a different monitor to that computer to completly rule that out as an option. If that doesnt work I would check to see if your video driver or monitor has settings for color hue.

Also on a VGA monitor it is possible that the connector isnt in all the way which can cause a distortion in color.

Thanks for the suggestion...yes, it is in the monitor. When I plugged in another monitor, everything was just fine.
The stange this is....the color on everything else seems OK. I only get this red tinge when I try to look at photos from a CD or memory stick. The color in the computer when I'm using it otherwise is OK.

I'm looking at the control panel on my monitor and I don't have the slightest idea what the knobs do. It is an older monitor and I don't have the directions anymore. I can tell that the brightness and contrast is turn to it's highest settin.

What do you suggest now...other than buy another monitor I cannot afford.

thanks,
Tim
