Video Card shot? Red Hue in the screen
by Ne0 - 8/13/04 5:10 PM
I have this red hue on my screen. Everything is red. There is no blue or green anywhere on the screen, only different shades of red. I don't think it is some kind of virus because I have done numerous scans with the latest McAfee updates and nothing turned up. Another reason why I dont think it is a virus is because even this bios screen has a red hue to it, and nothing is loaded at that point. I don't beleive it is the monitor either. When the computer is turned off, the monitor goes into a self-test mode, displaying a red, green, and blue bar perfectly. Also the adjusting settings are not all red. And when I try to deguass, I can see a rainbow of colors, but it reverts to the red hud after the click noise. So that leaves only a few possibilities. I'd say its the video card, but I've never heard of video cards doing this. I guess it could be the monitor cable, maybe? doubtful. Any help is greatly appreciated.
