I have a new HP p6280t PC with win 7. The monitor Acer X223W had a brilliant gorgeous picture day one with jewel like colors. Background was pure white on Firefox, IE 8 and desktop. Then microsoft download updates and after shutting down and restarting, the screen was yellow/green tinted. I have used the monitors menu controls to try and correct color/contrast/brightness etc. I used windows color control for 'degaussing', etc. Nothing helps. My hobby is photography and now my pictures are displayed with off-colors.

I tried restoring back to day one, using restore points. This failed every time with an error 0x80070005.
The restore menu also told me I would lose many programs I had installed. I'd hate to have to start all over I've been setting up the new PC for 4 days.

When you start the computer do you see a logo with HP and it says some thing like press F2 to get in bios/cmos ?
Am talking about the stuff you see before Windows starts to load(just when you start the computer , first thing that comes up).

E.g. http://www.fitzenreiter.de/ata/asus-a7n8x-...bios-post13.png (It may look very different then this)

Then you either have a monitor problem or a graphics card problem.

Do you have any other computer you can try the monitor on ? Or take it to a friends place and try it there
