Unhappy Monitor greyness


Parts of my screen have all of the sudden, become darker, it's very disturbing.... sometimes when i maximize a window, for a split second the whole screen is normal, but after that split second its like a sheet of grey was laid ontop of part of my screen...

Any ideas guys? Thanks in advance.

Check the cable is secured to the video card properly and that there is nothing magnetic beside the monitor i.e. speakers etc

Other than that no idea.

check the pins on the VGA adapter. missing pins result in color loss.
