Last night I contracted a virus on Windows XP. Having happened for the fourth time in six months, I was fed up and installed Ubuntu as a new OS. Once installed, I cheerfully poked around the various settings and Software Center.
Once my curiosity was sated, I opened up Firefox. Oddly, when it did so, the screen became very dim, almost totally black. However, when I moved the browser a bit to the right, it brightened back up again. Each time I shifted it back to the left it got darker, and was especially dark when it was near the upper left corner of the screen.
Later, when I decided to change my background, each time I clicked a different picture to use the screen changed. For one picture the screen had a blue tint. The next it was a red tint. The Dalmatian one made it extremely dark, even darker than when I opened up Firefox.
So, being a bit annoyed, I downloaded recordMyDesktop to upload my problems to Youtube. After recording, I watched the video. Strangely, none of the lighting and tint problems showed up.
I'm convinced the problem is with my monitor. It's an old Dell CRT. My grandfather says it might have something to do with the driver but I don't think he's so sure.
Anyone care to help? Thanks a lot! <3
