    My brother recently gave my kids his old computer (to keep them off of mine).
    Problem is he didn't have any of the manuals for the computer. The harddrive is in great shape with 90% free space. The problem is the moniter, everything on the screen has a green hue to it. I can't figure out the adjustments for it either. The moniter is a EMC 768M, does anyone know of a sight I might be able to find out some information on this moniter. Or better yet if you already know how to make the adjustments that will work too.

    Sounds like the red color gun is gone. If someone was messing around with the controls, then just take it to a shop and have them readjust the color guns. If no one was playing around with them, then the red gun is most likely no good, and in that case the monitor would need to be replaced. You couldn't fix this yourself. You need special tools to do it and the high voltage inside the case could kill you, even if it's been sitting unplugged for a while. If it were me, I'd just get a new monitor. At least that way you'd have a warranty. You could also get a good refurb monitor cheap which also come with warranties ;)

    There is a very good chance the red gun (there are 3 that are used to make the colors). As stated above it would be best to replace it. The cost of repair could easily be more than a new.
