DVI Flat monitor cable

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Peter Maurice Cram, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. Recently I purchases a 19" Sharp Flat screen monitor. It came with the
    standard VGA monitor cable. The monitor and my video card support the DVI
    connection, so I purchased a Flat screen DVI cable for my computer. The
    problem is that as soon as I hooked my monitor and video card and booted my
    computer up, I have a red back ground. Everything has a red tone. How do I
    change it back to the way it was before?

    Sorry! I was checking my manual, and I need a 24 pin DVI-D cable. I
    purchased a 18 pin DVI cable and I believe that is the problem. Sorry again
    but this is my first LCD monitor. All I ever had before were CRT's.
