    Hi,

    I noticed that almost every letter has a red or blue tint on my external monitor...like behind it..as a shadow...I am connected to dvi...if I use the dvi to vga converter...it gets reduced .......I even tried on a new dell monitor and it does the same thing!!!

    Is this normal?? Could it be my videocard that is beginning to be deffective???

    Thank you :)

    The display on your laptop is fine though?

    I would first check that the cable is firmly connected and that the cable works between other devices. If the cable is fine, then you have a problem with your MBP, in which case you should take advantage of your AppleCare if you are still covered.

    They might argue that the drop damaged the connector, but you could argue that the damage is only cosmetic. I'm not too sure on this one, so I would only go to them if your AppleCare is running out already, or if you're sure you can argue that the damage is only cosmetic.
