GTX280 Give Two Colors On Monitors?

Uhh crap is my GTX280 bad? (See pic)

Yes, I've switched the cables around, and tried different adapters, it always happens on the same output.

I checked it for obstructions as best as I can, and it's still doing this.

Yes, exactly.

That is what I am thinking. But now that you mention the color profiles and whatever, I'm thinking that it might be 7 because I think I used that port back when it was in a folding Rig. However, 7 ALWAYS has the green tint from that port.

Wait, it looks like that in the BIOS also. I think the GTX280 connector might be damaged.


Can I RMA it for that? It's almost brand new...

I checked as best as I could, and I can't see anything.. not saying that it's not there though.

No lol!
The left PORT on the GTX280 is always green! Both monitors work fine plugged into the right port!

No, I think it's been doing that since I got it. Guess I never tried that port.

Same team, so? Still being beat!
