Asus EAH 2400 Pro graphic card shows all videos in green - can't watch
Last Update: 07.11.2008
I recently bought a new graphic card because my old one probably broke down.
They're not really expensive anymore and I am not a gamer - so a 256MB ASUS
EAH 2400Pro would make it.
So I followed the instructions, installed the drivers, seated the PCI-Express
card in my PCI-E slot and start my computer. The driver installation goes smoothly,
so does the additional configuration software installation. I was looking forward
to finally use my computer again and then oh shock when I wanted to watch a
video the first time. It looked like this:
Uwah! What happened? First I thought the graphic card might be broken which
was a stupid thought because Windows XP worked well and pictures and everything
were displayed just fine. So my second guess was to install the newest driver
from the ASUS website. I was pretty sure that would do it but after a successful
driver update I still got the green videos. Annoying!
Today I finally found the solution! The final hints were given me from
this german forum. I didn't read the whole thread but some hints gave me
On your desktop make a right-click and click on "Settings".
In the now opened window change to the tab "settings". In this tab
click on "Advanced" in the right lower corner.
A new window will open which is called something like "Settings of plug
and play monitor...". Here's a tab called "ASUS". Click on this
one. You will have two tabs within. One called "ASUS OSD" the other
one "ASUS Splendid". Click on "ASUS Splendid".
Here's the bad thing! You have to deactivate this Splendid thing with check
button in the section "settings". Apply your change and leave the
windows with OK.
After that you will be able to watch your videos again! You can't imagine how
happy I am to finally have found the solution!!! :-)))
