    Can any one point me in the right direction. My monitor keeps flickering and going with a red and blue tinge, it is a tft monitor and a 64 mb graphics card, any help would be appreciated.

    check the connection to the videocard.
    ive had this problem happen once, it was a matter of pushing in the cable properly.

    thats the simple end of it.. i hope thats all your problem is

    yeah, happened to me once (well it kept going blue) just after I had bought a monitor, thought I was going to have to take it back but just wiggled the cable and hey presto! :) stoopid cables!

    Happened to me all the time when I used to have one of those desks where the monitor was facing up and you had to look down on it. The whole back fried in the end.
