Someone please help as I am at a complete loss. I am having a display problem where all dark colors (mostly black) are displaying as brown (burgundy) and are apppearing as a snowy, blotching effect (where the darker colors fade into lighter colors). It's the strangest thing because I just turned on my computer today without doing anything different and my display was all messed up. The problem shows up on my desktop, videos in Windows Media Player, Realplayer and Quicktime, games, and even when I am starting my computer just before the windows login screen shows up where there is supposed to be a black the brown cuts in and out instead. Even in certain parts of my screen dark colored text is sharp in some areas and appears smudged in others, as if I'm pressing on the screen but I'm not. I have absolutely no problems with any lighter colors at all. My computer (which I've owned for 2.5 years) specs are as follows: Windows XP - Professional NetVista M42 Pentium 4 1.8GHz RAM Type: PC2100 DDR SDRAM - 256 MB Monitor: ViewSonic VP201s LCD Display - I am not using the DVI cable (at least I don't think I am) just the regular one as I couldn't get the DVI cable to work (which is another issue) Video Card: RAEDON 9200 AGP - 128 MB Bios Information: BK-ATI VER008.015.048.001 Driver Date 2/22/2005 Driver Version: 22.214.171.12417 I have followed the troubleshooting through my display properties and have adjusted the graphic hardware accelerator without any luck. I have even tried to uninstall and re-install my video card without any luck. I have no idea if this is my monitor or my video card but I've had both for almost 1 full year without any problems at all. I even did a virus check and found nothing. I'm not much of a computer tech person as my troubleshooter suggested I check my BIOS to see if it's up to date but I don't know how to do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
