I need to know how to fix my computer. I had a run in with virtumonde and while i have finally cleared it out i am left with a another problem. My screen is blue tinted and red shows as black. Its not my monitor because in the monitor menu the box shows up white and the colors are perfect even the red. When i right click on my backround and go to properties and then to settings i see what the problem is but i dont know how to fix it. The color quality is set to highest (32 bit) under it where it shows your colors it only shows blue yellow and white. I am getting to the point where i am going to wipe my computer clean and do a system recovery if i cant figure it out. But i really dont want to do that if there is a chance it wont fix the problem.

please help

Hi, first thing I would do is download the latest video driver, uninstall your old driver and install the new one. What brand and model PC do you have? If you do notknow go to this link and post the M/B model. http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

Drivers for T3120 at http://www.emachines.com/support/product_s...amp;model=T3120

How to update a Windows hardware driver - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-update-a-windows-hardware-driver/

As suggested previously...uninstall the current driver, then reboot and subsequently install the downloaded driver files.

I updated my drivers, but nothing changed. My brother is going to let me use his extra monitor (might pick it up tonight) to test and make sure it isnt my monitor. If it isnt my monitor does that mean i need a new video card? If i do, how do i know which one to buy?

I would lean in that direction, if I eliminated drivers and monitor.

I have an old Nvidia GeForce FX 5200, would that be a good or a bad change? Would it hold me over until i can get something better or a until i buy a new computer next year?

Well...if nothing else, it would provide a basis of comparison in attempting to determine if your current video card is the problem.

I think that such would be good to know.
