Is this monitor toast?

#1Molt_CcCoyPosted 10/19/2013 4:59:36 AM
Bought a new monitor about a few weeks ago and loving it so far. But last night I would say about 20% of the monitor went gray ish. You can still see images through the gray it just looks like a crappy filter on part of the screen.

I've unplugged it and tried other things to no avail. I just would rather not go through the hassle of getting it fixed / exchanging it at best buy so I wonder if there is anything I can do or its just a lemon .

Here's a picture of what it looks like

Nah man, that's just nVidia's new "CSAA" style of antialiasing.

I'm not happy about buying it through there either. It was a spur of the moment purchase

oddly enough the gray area is starting to fade. Its still there and visible just not as prominent.

well I have to handle the rma through dell anyways because its 5 days outside BB 14 day return policy.

I'm going to call the store and ask before boxing this thing up and dragging it up there. If thats the case then I'll be fine because I am a rewards member but just glancing over their policy it seems to have changed recently

nothing wrong with buying from best buy as long as the price is right.

better than amazon thats for sure assuming the price is the same.

So the gray area is completely gone and the image seems to be perfect.

It seems like it was some sort of image retention that has gone away.
