It sounds like a poor connection to the monitor.
Wiggle the monitor's cable to see if you can make the problem appear.
Be sure the cable is securely attached to the video card.
If that's tight, open the case, pull the video card, and re-insert it to ensure a good connection.
Regards,
Ralph

elazul,

If Ralph's suggestion doesn't work try "gently" tapping the back
of the monitor case. Use the flat of your hand. If the tint comes and goes while tapping you have a cold solder connection in your monitor. Some monitors are prone to open connections over a period of time. If this is the case, buy a new monitor! Although it can be repaired the cost will approach the cost of a new monitor. This is NOT a job for the un-initiated.

Yopu have one of two problems either there is a poor connection inside your monitor or one of the guns inside you crt is going bad, either way this is a problem for a quailified service tech not  you. take your monitor to a computer repair shop. You may have to take the monitor to a good TV repair shop some computer guys are not up to monitor repair.

I've given up worrying about it because it happens constantly.
