    Hi Devin84, it is more than likely you are seeing your monitor on its last legs, and you will generally find that even getting a quote on repair of a 15" or 17" CRT monitor will cost you far greater than what a replacement will.

    The simplest solution is to plug another monitor into your computer and see if you get the same results, if you do, then it is your Video Card that is failing.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D
