the monitor cable might not be plugged in right, or might be faulty
you might need to reinstall your video card drivers

If that doesn't help, look online for a color map, preferably with lables (like this one maybe) and look at it on a known good monitor and go to ctrl panel > display >Settings >advanced and look for a tab that says color adjustment (or just look through them until you find one) and move stuff around untill the colors are as they should be.

Its probably the drivers. If you built a new computer, then you need to install the drivers for the video card. I'm assuming you have a nVidia video card, if you do, and you have Win2K or WinXP, then this is the link to download the drivers.

i have some one i dunt know if its good, GeForce 7800 GTX, if u hve a driver for my card can u give me a link plzzz.

that's an awesome video card!
you'll want the latest forceware drivers from Nvidia (80.40)

did you buy that card without realizing it was the absolute best card you could possiby get? at the mo, the only thing better than a 7800GTX is two of them! lol

did you have an ATI card previously?
if so, you'll have to completely uninstall the drivers you had before
