Bad Monitor Color temperature with Nvidia :( NEED HELP!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
ok so today i was surfing the web, and all the sudden it just looked as if my monitors colors went wacko, everything appears to have an orange coat now and anything white is now orangish grey... i dont know what happend. i have NO other monitor in my house and all these new games are coming out, whats the point of having a 7900 GT if the colors on your monitor are F'd? there is no point. im hoping that SOMEONE here can help me before i pull out my hair, im broke atm and cannot afford another monitor. please please, please help me fix this

Look on craigslist... I'm sure you'll find a CHEAP 21" CRT. I just bought a Viewsonic for $40 for my dads business.

wiggle the wires...on the back of the monitor and the back of the card....reseat the card...

my monitor (a long time ago..diffeerent one) used to screw up all the time with it's stupid VGA cable coming loose. I had to wiggle it on the back to get the right colour back.

Good luck.
