    I have got a display problem in Win XP, it happened all of a sudden and dont think i have touched anything.

    Around the edges of the screen the colour is all pink, blues and greens, very psychodelic, but not what i want. It happens from boot, so am i right in guessing it maybe a gfx card prob or a monitor prob....if so how can i test this??

    Thanks

    Ian

    i've not changed the drivers and its also starting from boot up, before XP boots?

    Try unplugging the monitor for about 30 min

    Did you move your speakers closer to the monitor, or are the Stereo Speakers close to it?

    Anything magnetic.

    definitly your montor... and if you say it happened all of the suddent then you must have something close to the monitor all of the suddent... eg. speakers or other electronic device... try move your computer to somewhere else... That should do.
