On the one that shows no color...its posible it has a bad video card...you can try reinstalling the video drivers...but I feel its either a bad card...or the cable from the monitor to the video card is either loose, has a bent pin ,or is bad. Try this..take the monitor from the bad one to one of the other 2,if it works its the card or drivers,if not its the monitor or cable.

windows 3.1 is in a differnt resolution mode than DOS. It may just be in that mode that the card is failing.
