Solved Computer Not Showing Red Color

Specs: Windows XP
my computer, not monitor, doesn't show color properly, mainly red. I have EMachine T6426 with HP vs17 monitor. I plugged another monitor into computer, same problem, so guessing that means issue is with computer not monitor. I have not changed anything in system settings and have checked all connections. Any ideas?

That sounds like a pretty old machine. The video card is probably going bad. You could purchase a replacement one, but it may also be time to invest in a new computer all together.

If it has a discrete video card then you can at least try this.
Power down and remove ac plug then press power on button a few times.
The open it up and reseat the video card..Try again.

I assume that the cable you used for each monitor was different????

Hang up and live.
