The Knowhow

  • Turn your computer and monitor off
  • Unplug the display cable behind your computer
  • Look at the pins in the end. It’s common for one or two to be missing but none should be bent.

  • Reconnect the display cable to your computer, making sure it’s securely connected. Tip: If your cable has finger screws, tighten these to ensure a good connection and keep it from getting knocked loose.
  • Repeat the above steps where the display cable connects to your monitor
  • With everything connected properly, your display should be back to normal
  • If not, try with a different cable

Your display should now be crisp, sharp and not look like you’re viewing it through tinted glasses.
