This morning, the very top address bar was looking a bit "washed out". Sort of pale blue/grey rather than the lovely cobalt blue. It seemed to fix itself mid morning.

Have been at work all day and come home tonight to a lovely techniclolour screen [:0]

The top address bar is now lime green on the very left hand side thru to a khaki green on the right hand side (close/mimimise boxes) then down the right hand side goes from the green to a lovely bright pink in the time box at the very bottom. There are various shades in between.

Is this likely to fix itself with being shut down overnight?? (It normally is) or is the monitor on the way out???

Never had any monitor issues before.........

Go to your monitor set up if it is crt and go to De Gaus (sp) and reset that should correct it

You need to press the MENU button on your monitor and use the Up/Down arrows to select the De-Gauss option. When you select it, the screen display will give a bit of a wobble and you may hear a sort of a clunk followed by a brief buzzing sound -- don't worry, it's all perfectly normal [8D]

I take it that you have an old CRT monitor, as this doesn't generally happen with LCDs :confused:

Put it this way, if it does happen with an LCD, it is a major problem, most likely not fixable unless the LCD panel itself is replaced [:(!]

Thanks guys,

It seems to have reset itself with being turned off over night. Hopefully, it will now behave itself......

Some monitors de-gauss themselves on startup, so you may have already done it.
If it comes back, you're looking at a fault in the monitor, or graphics card

I see you shiver in anticip......................................................................................ation
