    Hey all,

    I've got a Prolite E438S TFT which I use as my secondary display.

    Turned it on today when I got home from work and... it's broken. I just get a blue background the same colour as the default windows backround. Nothing else shows up on it.

    If I change the resolution out of native 1280x1024 to anything lower, I get loads of random colours. The OSD will not come on screen regardless of what I press.

    It's only 2 weeks old :(

    Sounds like it may have developed a fault. If you can try swapping the connections of your 2 monitors on your display card just to eliminate a problem with the card on one of its outputs. It may also be worth trying a different cable as well if you can. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your cards drivers just in case some strange problem has developed with them. Do you have another computer you could test the sceen on ? I cant really see really see the above being the problem, but probably worth trying.
