What's up with my monitor?

By driller11us ·
My monitor, just all of a sudden has developed grey shadows across my entire screen, where ever there is black on white. I've checked all conections and have gotten as far as the owners manual and windows help will go. Any suggestions?
Thank you inadvance

Can you degauss it? Some monitors allow you to do that.

If your monitor is beyond 5 years old and used day-to-day consistently, you may need to look at purchasing or repairing your monitor. Among the first signs that a monitor is starting to go bad, is the discolorations, blurriness, blinking of parts of the screen, etc.

Try another monitor on this computer just to confirm that it is not the video card.

Also, if the greyness is throughout, you might try raising the contrast and raising the brightness.

Well check your video card..it give a wrong signals or a corrupted signals...Reinstall the driver and make the video card seated properly....

If doesn't work try to swap your video card, to make sure it is working properly.
Did the video card work to other unit without that glitch..

If it is working Swap the monitor you can finalized you answer weather the monitor have trouble.

I don't know if this will help but<
I have seen similar problems when users have put a fan on their desk or (true) hung the monitor cable over her flourescent light to get it off her desk. inductive interference can cause many strange occurances and should be checked first before major changes in software or hardware are considered. Alot of times it won't be the problem but if you progessively eliminate the easy fixes you are less likely to waste resources.
Does the monitor react the same on a different Comp?(that would narrow down the defective component)
