    When I open a program, regardless of what it is, my monitor tints everything slightly green. If I close or minimise everything the green tint disappears. It's not a problem at this point so much as a concern that my fairly recently purchased monitor might be dying. However, it's really strange that the green tint only appears when a window is open. Would it be fair to say that my monitor is dying, or could it be a software problem of some kind?

    Hello..

    It is possible that the monitor is going bad, but I would check the video card driver first. You might want to update it.

    If possible, check the monitor on a second system and see if it does it. I have seen it work both ways... One time the monitor was actually bad, but the other time, it was just the video card driver.

    I agree with the above.

    Try the monitor on another system. If the same problem happens, it's the monitor. If not, it's probably a video card/driver issue.
