I can see everything just fine,but as I am typing this here, the display is being bluish. It is just like if I had a blue cam filter over my monitor... it is very annoying specially since I am a gamer. It is not the first time it happens, but now I can't manage to get rid of it ;/
I updated my gpu and that was not the problem.
running a radeaon 4850 on vista 64, 226NW syncmaster
I will even but a SS, but I guess you understand that I can't even know if you will actually see my problem!

rebooting didn't do anything and when I press my monitor's buttoms to change contrast and brightness, etc, the Interface colors are just fine; seems like either my windows or gpu?
Thanks in advance!

Do you have another video card you could pop in as a test? Just a regular old PCI card will do. That would eliminate some things.

Besides updating the drivers, have you tried using an older driver? If I had to guess, the video card is going South.

What if you try the video card in another computer? Same problem? Try some of what I mentioned, that should get you heading in the right direction.

yeah I thought of doing that but I don't have any hardware with me right now... ;( also I know it happened before and I just don't remember what I did, if I actually did something to fix it, so I am pretty sure there is something pretty stupid I can do to fix it.
Is the screenshot bluish?

You can also try another monitor to rule that out.

No, it doesn't seem to look bluish. I think when you take a screen shot, it wouldn't pick up what your video card is displaying onto your monitor, only the code for what is being sent to the video card before it transmitted it onto your display.

Also, try a different monitor. It could be your monitor. Borrow a friends or family members... even just a CRT will do.

You didn't disturb us. I'm glad you figured it out. I had a problem similar to yours once on my test monitor for when I refurbish used PC's and what not. Anyway, come to find out, the last time I plugged the VGA in I bent one of the pins so the signal wasn't transmitted correctly. I bent it back and all was fine. :)

Oh, and the point is I dealt with that problem for at least 2 months before figuring that simple problem out. :)

I usually find that if I am in a situation that is taking quite a while to figure out is that the answer will be really stupid.

:) Yep. I once couldn't get sound in a machine, no matter what. I even started a topic and PM'd Broni to help me. I ended up figuring out the sound was disabled in the BIOS. :)
