I haven't done anything out of the ordinary recently on my computer. Recently a couple of days ago, the moment you turn it on the screen is foggy. I tried to adjust the monitor but it doesn't go away. It sort of makes this grayish sheet of the entire screen and everything is a bit faded in color.

What caused this?

How can I fix it?

I REALLY NEED SOME HELP!

Thanks! :thumbsup:

This sounds like a problem somewhere inside the monitor. I would recommend you take it somewhere and have it looked at. Do not attempt to go inside the monitor yourself though, its extremely dangerous.

It's not a problem with the monitor. Because the same thing happened when this monitor was hooked up with my old computer. That computer I don't use no more and use the same monitor. It's been fine for months now without any problems.

Because the problem happened with the same monitor on 2 different computers - it's most likely that the monitor is the problem. I'd suggest borrowing another monitor to try on your system to see if the problem recurs.

That was my logic for suggesting that it was the monitor. I don't see any other reason for having the same problem on different computers.

I was going to attempt to reinstall the video driver. What do you think that would do?

To be quite honest, I don't think it would do anything at all.

What does that do for your computer? What about the video adapter? Are they the same thing?

The video adapter is just anothername for the video card. The driver is what makes the video card work, but if you already havea driver installed for it, then it doesn't make much since to install another one, unless its a newer one.

So, whats the worst that could happen?

The worst that could happen is what I said above-nothing at all. since the consequence isn't really too badI suppose its worth trying, although I'm pretty sure the monitor is the problem and not the driver.

And its also worth noting that windows help is extrremely general. Best to take what it says with a grain of salt.
