    ok this is odd, it just happend, recently but my screen started to get a yellowish tint and then switch back, to white then a couple times it quickly changed back and forth. is this is sign that my grafixs card is on its last leg? have something to do with my montor, or the fact that i just dled direct X 9.0 yesterday (for 3dmark2003)

    Perhaps you could uninstall DX 9 and see if the problem goes away?
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.

    ok I know exactly what this is as it JUST NOW happened to my dad's monitor. How long does it stay yellow for?

    On my dad's monitor sometimes it would stay yellow for a few hours and sometimes only for a few minutes. Or even a few seconds! And sometimes it went away by a simple slap on the monitor.

    Basically what it is.....is one of the color guns in the crt lazor shooter thingy (I forgot the name so I used that) is dieing, so it will turn off allowing only red and blue to light up. There for showing that greenish/yellowish tint that your saying.

    stupid pcworld, got this montor becuase they said it was a good one and now 6 months latter it is already dieing that sucs, if it had been the video card it woudl have been one thing cuz at least then i could have just blamed it on the oc, but it just stayes on for like a fraction of a second and then stops.

    do you have any clue how much time i have left before it bites the bullet?

    don't really konw as my dad's monitor did this for months. At first just a simple slapping it would fix the problem and then it just got so bad that slapping it would do nothing. So he got a new monitor :(

    The only sound way is a format but if ya were forcin' the monitor to display a refresh rate/screen size that was out of spec for the monitor then ya can blame it on the overclock. :devil win

    If it's only 6 months old isn't still under warranty?

    Can't you RMA the sucker? (To quote Wiggo)

    Make sure you take pictures of when it isn't working right to so can prove it happens.
