    I've got a Viewsonic P95f+ monitor.

    19" CRT

    I keep the brightness at medium level, but it regularly goes darker (Grey/washed out) and it gets harder to read the print (Seems blurry). I haven't nailed down a pattern, but I'd say every 15-20 minutes or so. It lasts 1-10 minutes, then goes back to my regular brightness.

    The monitor is probably 5-7 years old, but I've had no problems until now. I recently put in a new power supply and graphics card in my PC, but I can't say if this started before or after those changes.

    Could this be a problem with a driver/the graphics card/power supply, or is it just time to get a new monitor? Any tips on how to diagnose?

    Thanks,
    Eddie

    Sounds like you will need a new monitor. Since it is happening fairly often hook it up to another computer and see if the same thing happens.

    I used to have a viewsonic, but it was laid to rest becasue of a brightness problem. Every now and then, the screen would get darker, so I up'd the brightness to componsate. After a while of doing this, the brightness eventually reached 100% (so I couldnt raise it anymore, lowerering and raising didnt help).

    Needless to say, invest in a new monitor
