half my screen is yellowish.
Is my screen done? Can it be fixed or not worth it?
Darn thing. Whats the life span of CRT's?
I think I've had it for about 9-10 years.

I gotta shop for a new one.

First thing to do is make sure the video cable is properly attached to the computer and the monitor.
If that's ok, it is either the video card(or chip if onboard) or the monitor

8 to 10 years is probably a good life span for a CRT monitor or even a graphics card. Might be time to think about a new one...or both.

Hope alls been well Neil.
Everything is YELLOW, haha. I guess lost my Blue channel.
I even tried to wear blue tinted sunglasses to color correct, lol. Helped a bit.
So VERY annoying.
I must look for a screen ASAP.
Cheers, Dave.

I had chosen a cheap $100 LG Korean monitor. Just within a year of its warranty, it broke. I returned it, and the store fixed it. Bought a newer dual core system and gave the fixed monitor to the wife.
