Default Screen Discoloration

I was wondering if anybody would know what I would have to do to get this fixed. My friend has a computer screen that is discolored. I thought it was that he needed a driver update for the graphic card (I tried doing so, but it didn't work. or maybe i did it wrong.) He has a Nvidia Riva TNT2 sony model 64. It is not the screen, because he ended up buying a different one and still has the same problem. Does anyone know what I could do to fix it?

Can also happen if you have a magnet too close to the screen.

such as a speaker/subwoofer.

yup, make sure that there are NO speakers besides computer speakers besides the monitor, computer speakers are magnetically shielded to block the effects of a magnet on a crt monitor
