GREEN tint (not funny)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi there ,

I am lost for words , everything leads me to believe that the problem is emanating from the Motherboard.

Problem :

Bought two brand new identical monitors and hooked them up to my Radeon HD 5830 via HDMi-DVI cables. Found that the LEFT monitor has GREEN tint about (5~8%) compared to the left. Hmmm i thought , bad panel ?

I physically switched the monitors around same cables , thinking the green would now be on the RIGHT , and NO it was on the left again , so Monitors are fine.

Then I looked to the VGA card, maybe bad ? Switch to older Nvidia Gforce 9600GT , same problem , green tint always on the LEFT. I tried switching cables and bought HDMi cable and run it directly from HDMi - to - HMDi .

Alsways green tint when running BOTH monitors at the same time , not when running a single monitor.

Then I though maybe it's because of a bad VGA port , so I used two VGA cards on my P8P67 and hooked each monitor to each card ! So there was the green tint again , and again on the LEFT always.

So now I really scratch my head and wonder what is causing this phenomenon. Must be the motherboard , not being able to correctly display the color unified over BOTH monitors.

I really wonder what could be causing this . I updated the HD 5830 drivers to latest , but of course my difference. Problem keeps returning even in post and in Bios you can see the green tint.

Now i am thinking that when having the two monitors hooked up and on at the same time , there is something that is conflicting in the signal , which is distorting the colors. But how and where is this happening and how can I prevent it from happening.

I am doing a lot of photoshopping and photo editing so over both monitors , so they need to be the same.

This seems like a serious signal interference problem and I don't think that a calibration tool like Spyder 3 is an option in this case. cause this green tint is visible as soon as the computer is turned on in post.

Please advise

Thank you

Ralph

PS , new monitors are Samsung SA350's

To summarize his post to those who aren't reading:
Green tint on 1 of 2 monitors. Green monitor appears on the same port every time.

Switched monitors around(with green tint still on 1 monitor)
Switched graphic cards (with green tint still on 1 monitor)
Green tint visible during post (so pre windows load??? Tint possibly in Bios also?)

Hypothesis: Motherboard -

I would check your cables, I have some bad cables around that do much worse than that. I would also check for any metal interference on the ports (ei ungrounded i/o shield ect).

"cause this green tint is visible as soon as the computer is turned on in post."

Regardless if it ends up being the motherboard you could probably manually adjust the settings of 1 of the monitors to fix it.

Yeah, it sounds like Windows being windows, your hardware should be fine! Just try to adjust the colour to compensate for the green tint, if you can do that then you know its a software fault as you could change it using software!!

Not following the logic there, if you are adjusting the software you are just compensating for a problem it doesn't tell you if it's software or hardware.

it indeed sounds like a motherboard problem, did you use an anti static wrist strap when you assembled your computer? although maybe you could try moving the monitors to other sides and see if theres a tint on the left still, that would indicate some kind of signal interferance...

Wrist straps are just annoying you can do the same thing by just always resting on the case while you build, not hard too do and then you don't have a cable in your way.

Did you check for bent pins/missing pins on the port displaying a green tint?

It sounds like you answered you question. Motherboard if no pins missing/bent.

I have tried switching the monitors of physical position if that's what you meant , but I the green always finds it's way to the LEFT monitor , no matter how many times I switch them around
