Default Screen flicker

Sometimes all the green colors disappear from my screen, leaving everything
with a heavy reddish tint. I don't think it's the card, since I just
replaced the card and still have the same problem, so this post may be a
little OT. Anybody know what might cause this?

Most likely cause is a broken wire in the video cable. To test try
flexing the cable near each end where it goes into the connector or
cabinet--if the color comes and goes then it's the cable for sure. If
it stays gone then that test doesn't tell you anything--it may still be
the cable but too far gone for flexing to make and break contact.

If the monitor has a detachable cable then replace the cable, if the
cable is permanently attached to the monitor, and you're not handy with
tools, check the prices of a new monitor because it may not cost much
more than paying somebody to fix the cable, which usually involves
cutting off the old connector and soldering on a new on, a real PITA if
you don't have the color coding for the individual wires.

Either that, or the guns are misfiring.

Check the pins of your monitor's connector. Something is not
connecting right.
