okay so this is starting to piss me off. my monitor will flicker red tint back and forth. like it will be normal, then quickly become red tinted and go back and forth between normal and red tinted for a few seconds and then balance out at normal again. i've tried upping the refesh rate, changing the connector it's on (geforce 6800 ultra 256) and lowering the clock frequency but still no dice. i'm running out of ideas. is my monitor dying? it's an iiyama 17NE1 btw.

Try running the LCD at the default setting. For the LCD's that I have worked on, normally the desktop area is 1280x1024 @ 60hz. I have had problems with CRT's when one of the pins have been bent, not sure if it is the same with LCD's, but check the pins and make sure that none of the pins have been bent.

I've had similar display problems with LCDs where the cables seem to make poor contact, either at the PC end or at the LCD end. Unplug and replug firmly was all that was needed for me.
