Afternoon All

I have a little problem with my monitor

A couple of days ago one of my speakers fell behind my desk and hit the back of my PC, now when this happened the color on my moniter changed and is now very dark, with a red hugh to it

I have tried changing it back under ‘Properties’ etc but to no avail

Any ideas ??

PS. the actual monitor itself was not phyically hit.

Make sure you monitor is plugged into your video card all the way. Also try adjusting the contrast of your monitor.

If a VGA cable is partially out in that back then it will cause it not to display certain colors.

you said one of your speakers fell behind it? I assume your monitor is a CRT as opposed to an LCD? IF its a CRT it may need to be degaused.... some monitors have a button right on them or it's part of their menu.... if not some also auto degaus on start up.... try turning it off ( actually off not just on standby ) a few times.... barring that you could see if you find someone who can degause it.

Most monitors you can change the three basic colors, red, yellow and blue.
You also change the brightness.
In other words everything could easily be readjusted on the menu, you can access it by using the buttons on your screen.
