screen is pink/ monitor doesn't come out of sleep
Posted on 1997-12-10
I own a Gateway 2000, model G5-166 which I purchased two months ago. I'm having difficulties with my monitor turning pink. It is pink most of the time but flickers between pink and normal color at times.
My other problem also involves my monitor. It does not always come out of "sleep" mode when I move the mouse or hit a button on the keyboard. Sometimes the orange light, which signals that the monitor is sleeping, remains orange and nothing happens despite my moving the mouse or hitting the keyboard. At other times, the orange light turns green as if the monitor has come out of sleep but I only receive a blinking pink cursor at the top of the screen and cannot do anything else. At this point in time I have to shut down my computer improperly and I'm worried about what kind of damage this is doing.
I would appreciate your expertise on fixing these problems. Or is this problem unfixable and I should send my monitor back to the company?
