Problem: Colour red, showing as Black.

My screen was working fine, until I replaced the Male to M SVGA VGA to a longer one, then the screen resolution went funny like really zoomed in, so i changed it back to the old one, and now it's kinda lost it's colour. I know it's not the monitor or connections because we've tested on another computer.

I think it's just down to the computer graphics card. So could anyone please give me some advice on what the problem could be. I dont think a wire could affect the screen outcome.

Ive uninstalled and reinstalled new drivers, and once the nvidia driver was uninstalled and i restarted the pc, the screen colour was still showing as greeny. The startup words which are normally white, show up as greenish. If you want pictures ask me and ill camera some.


Below is suppost to be a white background, but its displayed as greenish:

I would plug in my old cable and see if it goes back to normal. Try going to a older restore point, one before you starting changing things. Try this; right click on desktop and select personalize at the bottom of drop down. Look to the bottom of the screen and desktop back ground and pick a color.
Have you installed or updated any thing around the time of this problem?
