Pages turn light green

Had this problem before when pages turn a sort of light green and I go into colour management and turn the green down a bit and it will work ok for a short spell then start turning green again.

Using W/8 but had the same problem on W/7 before.

Is there any way of locking the colour to the way I want it.It is on board graphics that I have.

It is connected to a TV/monitor by VGA cable.Speccy gives me this.

SyncMaster (1680x1050@59Hz) Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.0)

and this.

So it is not the monitor.

What PC have you? Make/model. I see you are still using socket 775.

This is your motherboard.DDR2 RAM no idea what CPU you have. You should install SIW The home edition (free/discontinued) which will tell you all you need to know about your PC.

Back to your problem if it is not the monitor then most likely then it is the motherboard/graphics chip that is faulty. You would need to try it on another monitor to see if the problem still occurs.

Are you sure the cable is good an the connection is good? White turning pale green is a classic symptom of a poor connection between the graphics port and the monitor. It could be a bad connection at either end, a bad cable, or bad connector at either end. I assume (I haven't read all the replies) you've given the connection at either end a good hard push?

Everything connected Ok.So do not think it is the cable or monitor.Might give it another good clean out and look for any problems inside in the next couple of days.

Ok took it apart today and could find no problems.Did not need cleaning as such.Put it back together and switched on.Went to colour management and got a notice of new device added.

Not sure of the exact words but tried device manager.monitors.And the setting for that had changed.

So at the moment it is working Ok,Whether it stays that way or not I don't know but fingers are crossed.

So thanks to all that helped and probably suggested that I should try that.
