Sometime ago I noticed that I could not change my screen resolution from 600 x 800 to higher using 16 bit colors. I gave up on that.
However four days ago I was booting up. I hit the F8 key and attempted to select "Last known good configuration that worked". So soon as I selected the same a green tint suddenly appeared on screen and has covered half of the screen.
I checked my monitor connection cable and reconnected it The screen came clear. On my next bootup the tint appeared again. This afternoon I booted up and the screen was clear. No tint. 20 minutes later the screen blinked and the tint appeared again.
I have been trying to find a solution but to no avail. I have however tried to narrow the problem down to either my video card or monitor going on the bum.
I am no technician and have picked up some knowledge by reading threads on your forum. While all other things seem to work well I have this problem.
Thankful for any assistance that can be given.
