Monitor Display issue Help

  1. Yes I'm using a compaq mv540 monitor (yes its old) ona windows 2000pro OS with a nvidia tnt2 32meg graphics card..
    and i took my eyes off it for about 10 seconds i turned back and I honestly cant describe it.. all the colors bleed to the right of the screen none of the menu buttons on the monitor mount work either. Instead they change the screen to yellow or blue or lower the brightness extremely low to where it looks normal.. but you can barely see anything.. (note: menu buttons do not bring up monitors usual menu) and routinly it switches between the many faces.. I took some screenies but since the monitor is displaying these bizzard colors the pics only display the bleeding effect. Anyone witnessed this before?

    Solutions i've tried:
    Uninstalling all display drivers and reinstalled
    Attempted updating all display drivers
    Safe mode boot
    Last good known config boot
    Dxdiag (all checks out fine -_-)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Sounds like you monitor may have gone bad.

    Can you try your monitor on a different system?
