Colour Problems...

Hi, My Monitors missing a whole range of Colours, Its like one of the Colour guns is not working.

I dont think its the Monitor as when it starts up the wee box that mentions the Screen resolution has all its Colours. It started after I moved the PC and I bent some of the Pins in the Monitor to PC cable. I replaced it with a new cable but to no avail.

Now I have no Greens or Yellows, only reds and Blues.

Any Ideas what else it Might be, The Graphics card was removed ages ago and as far as I nkow its been running fine just on its built in graphics...Until now that is.

I have fiddled with every concievable colour control but it dont help any.

Im On Microsoft Vista 32 bits on a 4 year old Median PC, The Monitors a Proview.

Any Advice or help would be much appreciated...Blood.

I really cant see anything of the female Pin holes, all the Male pins are on the Monitor lead and its brand new and they all line up anf fit in with ease, Ive had the casing off the PC but looks like its all part of the motherboard. Ive wiggled them and Shoogled them hoping to create a better contact but its made no differance.

Like i say, it has no dedicated graphics card..that was removed by the technician to stop the PC Video from freezing.

Can you try the PC on another monitor just to rule out a fault with the PC.
