Default Moniter problems,Changing colors.

Hi, Whenever I start my computer up it starts with a black screen. Then it starts chaning to different colors ( in fullscreen, i cant access login page or anything). The n ihear the windows start up sound. If i turn my moniter off and on, it will be black for about 10-15 seconds then start changing colors again. I beleive it is something with the video cables, but i would like to be sure.

Before i left for vacation it worked perfectly, i turned it off. Then when i came back it starts doing this.

In advanced thanks for any help.

Yes that would be the video cable is not making a full connection to the Video Card. At least from my experience. I would check that first. Possibly check to make sure the card is fully seated as well.

LCD or CRT? I don't know if LCD's ever need a degauss or not, but a CRT does from time to time. Probably won't help, but it can't hurt.

LCD wouldn't need a degaussing, because they're not affected by magnets like CRT's are.

Have you tried a different monitor as well, just to make sure it didn't start flaking out by chance?

I'd say it's probably geared toward more of monitor problem itself. Try a different monitor to make sure.

Ask him if he has seen the back of your palm. When he says no, slap him across the face with it.

Just kidding mate. Glad you found out what the issue was.
