Monitor Goes Blue

July 3, 2009 at 19:56:33
Specs: Windows XP, intel P4 1.5Ghz socket 478 / 256 MB SD Ram

I am new here and my problem is that my 6 year old PC has some problems related to the Power Supply(I guess).
256 MB SDRam

My monitor turns blue at most of the time .ie I cant distinguish Red and blue .Both appears as blue.
I connected the monitor with my friends PC and there was no problem.Sometimes there will no problem and it turns blue again after some minutes of usage.
I guess its problem with my Power supply so I have done an analysis with HWmonitor.
I am giving screenshot of my analysis
can anyone solve my problem?

If your power supply was really producing a voltage that far out of whack your PC wouldn't be working at all. Basically what I'm saying is that your PS is okay. Some PC monitoring chips have problems giving the right readings in Windows.

If you jiggle the cable that goes from the monitor to the PC, does the picture on the monitor change?

You may have a problem with your video card, that is, if your PC has one. If the video is integrated onto the motherboard, that chip may be going bad.

Yeah, that's usually due to a bad monitor, bad monitor cable or bad connection. Video card would be next on the list. When you hooked it up to your friend's computer, did you leave it on long enough to make sure it wasn't going to happen with it?

At first thanks for all replies
1.No change when jiggles the cable.
But often screen comes normal after switching it off and on continuously.
But it turns blue again after some time.
2.I have S3prosavage onboard video accelerator (32mb).
I agree to that.Means I have to bring another monitor home and test with that one.
Your problem is not similiar to mine
I cant see the Mercury red logo on bootscreen
In the Microsoft boot menu characters are CYAN
Means I have no RED signal.
Most probably my monitor will be the problem

I really would like to try any old, APG or PCI graphics card, first. Do you know anyone who has one you could try?

Only you can make that decision. I haven't specifically checked but you can probably get a 128 meg card for $20 -$30 on ebay, maybe even a 256 meg.
