    Default Display issue/problem

    Last night I turned my PC of as usual. This morning I tried to turn it on and all it displayed was a green screen. If I turn the screen on by itself it displays the samsung logo and stays black. When I power on the PC the screen goes green. I don't even see any of the boot screens.

    What could it be? I don't think it is the screen but I can try another screen when I get home.

    If it's displaying the Logo, then it could possibly be a GPU problem. Try re-seating the GPU, checking the power connectors, try another port on the monitor/GPU.

    If you have Video out on your motherboard try that too, to eliminate the monitor as the problem.

    So I think its the screen, brought it to work and tried all the connections. HDMI, DVI and VGA. HDMI and VGA give me a black screen, DVI gives me a green screen.

    I'm sorry to hear that czc. What is it with components breaking so easily these days? Is the screen still under warranty?

    Nah, it's a Samsung T260 nearly 8 years old.

    Do you have a backup screen or the means to get a new one?

    I'm going to see if I can use one of the 27" screens I use here at work over the long weekend and then see.

    I've emailed these people about a repair, http://www.123crt.co.za/ since their phone lines seem to be wrong.
