Not sure if this is a video card problem/driver or a Monitor Problem. My computer is
a Compaq Presario 5152 with Windows 98 (build 4.10.1998). It no longer has the color "red" on it...
No problems in device manager. Video card is RAGE LT PRO AGP 2X and i have a Compaq Presario MV700 monitor. Other info:
Board: Compaq 043Ch
Bus Clock: 100 megahertz
BIOS: Compaq 686A1 08/05/99
350 megahertz AMD K6-2 w/3DNow!
I have tried to update both the Monitor and Rage drivers but keep getting the message the best ones are being used. No Red shows up in paint (custom colors) or in
Display propertys/settings (the little color bar under colors,though i have the choice of 256,High 16 bit and True 32 bit). Changing these do not make a difference...
Should I Uninstall my Monitor and see if the computer corrects this on re-boot/plug and play or should I reinstall my Video card first? Could my monitor just be going..AGGGH..
Where to start ????

This is a new one for me. If you have checked the color settings in your system, then I'd check the video card driver. Reinstall or update the driver in the device manager. Also, I'd test the monitor by hooking it up to another machine. If you still have a problem on another machine, then it's the monitor. Have you adjusted the color settings on the monitor itself? Try setting the hue and contrast/color. Could be simple as that. If all else fails, test the video card itself.

One of those should help determine the cause.
