    Monitor : ViewSonic 19" CRT Graphics Series G90f+

    Graphics Card : ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum

    NOTE : Drivers are up-to-date and all cables and connections have been visually checked.


    The screen oscillates between a normal colour cast and a slightly yellow colour cast. Oscillations are typically around 1 per second. Sometimes the screen stabilizes for a few hours on either the normal colour cast or the yellow colour cast and then starts oscillating again.

    Any suggestions on possible causes would be gratefully received.

    Try it in Safemode and see it has the same problem.

    Get to Safemode by tapping F8 on restart about every second and in the option screen use the arrow keys to choose safemode and press Enter.

    It is likely something within the monitor itself, but I can't tell you what exactly.

    Depending on the cost to have it fixed you may be better off buying a new monitor - unless its really something really simple.
