I have an HP desktop with an Acer LCD monitor-when I boot up the monitor has all kinds of distorted colors and all of the icons are the wrong colors-if I do a reinstall on the integrated graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce) and restart the PC then the monitor is fine-however I cannot switch users unless I shut down and reboot-do I just need a new video card?

If had a graphics card (not chip installed)...and I had vision problems using that card...which did not exist when I use the onboard video chip...it seems pretty clear cut.

Before I resorted to using the onboard totally, I would satisfy myself that drivers cannot cure the situation.

The onboard graphics shouldn't have anything to do with users accounts, that is a OS issue.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
