PC is HP Pavillion 7850 running with Windows ME.

Recently moved computer station at home and when I rehooked everything, the colors displayed on the monitor were all whacked:
red is black, green is red, yellow is blue.....etc.

Not sure what the problem is .
Undid all connections and reconnected.

Please HELP!!!!!

I agree with x5dr, but I would like to add that speakers will not harm your monitor unless thay are not magnetically shielded. Most, if not all computer speakers are magnetically shielded.

I think I found my problem.
The pins in th plug are messed up.
Pins are bent up and are short. Tried pulling them out but didnt work.

Now what can I do??

At this point you will need to find some way to replace the connector. You may have to replace the entire cord. If you are not experienced in that kind of thing, you will definitely want to take it to someone who is.
