    Here is my problom. I have a hp 2025 20 inch flat lcd monitor. A Geforce 4 mx 4000 128mb AGP. Ok the desktop colors looks ok, but when i play a video the colors are way off or to bright i think for instance i was watching a show that had a chick with white wings and thoes white wings where so bright that it could blind you( over exagerating about the blinding part) any who i paused the scene there and tried to fix it and no go, i tried to fix it from the monitor and nothing and from the video card properties and jack the more i try to fix the more it got worse or it turned into a diff color. Well if someone could tell me how they have theres set so i can try it or has this lcd monitor gone kaput?

    if u have acces to another PC taek that monitor that u know is good and hook it up to yours and see if it runs into the same problem, and hook up your monitor to the other computer to see if the problem occurs.... you need to cancel out the monitors next....

    then in my opinion, either your monitor is going out, or your monitor is having a conflict with compatibility possibly with your video card.....
