What is going on with my monitor?

Posted 08 July 2013 - 07:09 PM

So this is my monitor:

This is my roommate's monitor:

Using the same cable and the same computer. When I plug my monitor into another computer it looks fine (using same DVI cable and resolution). I'm not sure what's going on.

I'm sure I replied to this earlier, I mustn't have hit the post button. It looks to me like the first image is in 8 or 16 bit colour rather than 32 bit colour. Have you checked your display settings for the monitor in your OS?

Thanks so much! I wasn't sure what the problem was to search for an answer but you were right on target with the problem being color depth and it was rendering in a 8 bit color rather than true color. After some more googling on how to fix this I found AskUbuntu and what fixed it was in the answer:
sudo intel_reg_write 0x70008 0xC4002000
.
