Re: monitor time bomb?
Yeah it sounds as if the monitor is on the way out, I had the same thing with mine, where the colour was always purplish, and it would flicker. Mine was like that for about 6 months but it never blew up.
You can get CRT monitors dirt cheap these days, I picked up the two 17" I have in a computer fair, and it costs me £40 for the two, if I get a years use out of them (coming up to 9 months now) then I have no complaint, just waiting for the TFT or LCD ones to drop down in price a little then its gonna be the two 21" widescreen........heh!!
