I have a wierd problem that's driving me nuts.
My wife has a Compaq 9500 19" CRT monitor on an AMD XP 2100 (1733 MHz)
512 meg ram, with on board sound and graphics.
A few months ago, the screen went a deep red hue with a black start button but would occasionaly flicker back and forth to normal. I tried setting the refresh rate to 85 from 75 Hz and back, played with the operator setting, software, nothing.
I have a Cornerstone PL500 21" CRT on my AMD described in my profile. I have never had any problems with it. I put my wifes Compaq monitor on to my PC to see if the issue was related to her PC only and I had the same horrid colors.
I wrote the monitor off as dysfunctional. I hooked up my Cornerstone again and after it went into standby mode, it came out with the same red coloring! 2 different computers and 2 different screens?
Out of frustration I gave the side a love tap and it went back to normal.
What could this be??
We are both using XP Pro so the black start button is definately not normal!
