    My monitor is kinda freaking out i guess. All colors, except for the darker colors like black-ish are not being displayed correctly. I have no idea why, yesterday it was fine. To make an exampe, go to the site of game publisher Perfectworld.com (it's my best example).. Now look at the color of the page.

    Here's what mine looks like:

    It's a example of how the color is disorted, also look at the workbar at the bottom of the screen.
    I also tried to press auto-adjust and fabricreset, but to no wins.

    Anyone able to help me?

    Did you try to plug in another monitor? If the same problem persist then it means either the plug-in is fucked up or your browser is having a bug issue.

    You cant portray the problems you are having with your monitor by taking a screencap. The screencap may still look discoloured to you, but that is because you are viewing it on the same monitor, to us the colours look the same in both the screencap and the site.

    Easiest way to start off making the diagnosis is to plug your monitor into a different device and to see if you are experiencing the same issues. Then you can determine if the problem is originating from the monitor itself or the pc.

    Screenshot shows nothing therefore its definitely a monitor issue (seriously why did you bother with the screenshot it looks completely normal!)

    As DarkStriker said, try a different monitor, if it shows the same problem then GOOD NEWS! Its the cable. If it doesn't show the same problem then you need a new monitor.
    ALternatively try a different cable and if that doesn't work you need a new monitor.

    hmm, the same issue persists in game... But i dont have another monitor to hook up, that makes it even more .... crappy.. and ffs, just when you think it will last for a little longer, it gives up on you. I might try a diffrent cable, but I will wait. Lets see what happens when I turn the power off the thing, and check back tomorrow or so. If i need another monitor, i will be broke, since my new Computer almost drained all of my money.

    Plug the monitor into another machine like I suggested. If you don't have another see if any friends of yours have a laptop or something that you can use instead.

    Hmm, update, seems like my new pc is coming in 1-2 days. I will update you guys when it arrives, to see if the monitor is bitching. Also, what color do you guys see on the given website? Brown/black or Black/blue/metallic-ish

    Also thanks for all the suggestions, I'll be sure to try em
