Windows 7: Desktop keeps showing a colored overlay

Desktop keeps showing a colored overlay

Hi All,

I have a problem that is driving me crazy. Every 10 - 15 mins my desktop changes color and then 10 - 15 mins later it changes back.

Im attaching an image to show what i mean as its hard to explain. One is my normal deskop the other shows the problem. The colour can also differ today its pink but in a few days ago it was bright blue!

I am running Windows 7 Pro 64Bit with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD5400 and connected to my Sony Bravia via hdmi

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Wurz

The only experience I have had with the problem you are experiencing was a failing monitor. Have you got another monitor you can use to perform a test?

Thanks for the reply

I do have a friend bringing one over later to test this. Im hoping this isn't the problem as the TV im using isn't a year old yet. TV works fine.

Ok, i was looking in the wrong place for he answer as I didn't think for a second it would be the new and otherwise perfectly working TV. Thanks to Sir George my train of thought concentrated more on the TV than windows. Seems i am not the only one with this problem and it is an issue with the Bravia TV with no real fix!


Thanks Sir George at least i now know the problem.
