Supermatch 17" VGA monitor gone BLUE. It's not the cable, and not the adapter. (connected to a Mac PPC) What could I do to fix it besides purchasing a new one?

Nothing to do outside the monitor.  Take it to a TV shop if you aren't familiar with electronic repair.  The cost of a 17" monitor should justify the repair expense unless the CRT (picture tube) is bad.

Well then you should be familiar with trouble shooting video screen and output circuits.  There are no low level RF or IF circuits to worry about.
Good luck,
