Default monitor f*****?

my monitor every now and then flickers and then gives everything a blue colour

could it be on its way out or could it be my graphics card (radeon 9000 with latest catalyst drivers ) ?

p.s.
while i was writing this my monitor was blinking blue to normal then back again

check the drivers maybe go back to an older driver

check to make sure there are no bent pins on the cable to the moniter and the conneccter is firmly seated

if possible i would test this monitor on another computer. if it still does it you would know it is not the video card or drivers. i think you have a hardware failure emminent.

I had the same problem with my monitor except the colour was green. It WAS a faulty monitor.
