Blue contours on graphics

My PC is a home built affair- Athlon64 3000 processor, Asrock K8 upgrade motherboard with onboard graphics & 512MB ram.

Problem is when playing back anything or with may photos these are blue contours around skin tones in particular & its annoying.

Any ideas?

have you tried de-gaussing (lol.....not sure if thats how you spell it) the monitor?

can you do that with a TFT?

If it's an old CRT it may be a problem with the monitor itself.

dont think you can do that with a TFT no.

You definitely can’t degauss a TFT. Degaussing simply means the removal of any stray magnetic fields that can build up on the ferrous parts of a CRT. Such fields can distort the picture and lead to areas of strange colours since a CRT uses controlled fields to generate the picture in the first place.

What happens if you zoom into the picture i.e. assume you see a blue contour 1 mm wide, when you zoom in does the contour become 10 mm wide, or is it still the 1 mm?

If it increases in size its the “fault” of the picture itself. If it’s the same size it looks like the on-board graphics, or the TFT.

Is it possible to try another monitor?
