Help! one monitor is malfunctioning

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by fearless9, Nov 7, 2006.

  1. I have just been hit by a power surge.
    My PC is protected but not the monitors and in addition the surge blew out one of the distribution boards.

    I am back up again but one monitor has a deep blue background color, the other monitor is OK.
    Everything else appears OK.

    Any ideas as to how I can fix this monitor problem please.
    Many thanks
  2. Go to Best Buy and replace it. Unless of course this is a $2500 widescreen flat panel. Then you may want to try to fix it.

    Depending on the severity of the damage, it may be cheaper to just purchase something brand new. And while there purchase a larger surge protector that you can hook all monitors into.
  3. Bucking for a Darwin [traders], are we?
