Yesterday I was playing Call of Duty 2. Everything was smooth and normal. My monitor was displaying colors perfectly. I quit playing and turned the monitor off, leaving the computer on. I went out for an hour or so and when I came back I turned on the monitor. The colors were screwed up. The most distinct thing is that blacks now look like darkish greens and some whites look kind of like... well pinkish. All the other colors look kind of fine, but somehow off. It's really hard to explain, but the fact is that there is some problem with my monitor displaying colors right. My first impression was that there might have been a driver problem. But how could it be if I didn't do anything to them. I just left my computer on for a while with the monitor turned off. I also suspected it might have been a problem with the cable or connection. I tried changing the VGA cable but the problem remained. I started wondering that maybe the monitor has began to show its age. I've been using it a lot since I bought it.
Can someone please explain me what is happening?
These are my specs:
Brand: KDS Radius
Type: LCD 15"
Year bought: 2002 - 2003 Can't remember exactly
Pentium 4 1.6 GHz
640 MB RDRAM (Rambus)
Video Card: Powercolor Raden 9550 256 MB
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
