    I think my monitor isn't very old, i got i a few years ago and its a flat screen.
    I checked, my color quality is 32-bit i also tried out different resolutions and nothing changed.
    The monitor connection also seems to be good.
    is there anything else except that the video adapter is failing or the cable is going bad.
    Maybe it might help you, i have Nvidia geforce 7300 GS...

    I went on the nvidia page downloaded the newest driver, uninstalled my old one and installed the new one and nothing changed. If the cable is broken I just need to get a new one or? What if the video adapter is broken?

If You are using a CRT monitor (older Monitors similar to a TV) It may be time to replace it

Also you can try right clicking in a empty space on your desk top
go to properties>settings and check to see if your color quality is set to 32-bit

Double check you monitor connection

If all else fails your video adapter could be failing or you Monitor(VGA/DVI) cable is going bad

    Is there anyway you can check the cable and test it with another cable?

    you can also double check and make sure you drivers are up to date

    the driver is found here

    next would be to replace or test the cable with one that is known to work

    if the video adapter is going bad its time to replace it depending on what it will be used for these can be found fairly cheap

I get a pop up with a RED CONTRAST screen every few minutes It sometimes goes away if I push the contrast button on my Dell monitor. but it will usually come right back. I have tried everything to stop...

You can try the monitor on another computer to verify it is the monitor and not the display card at fault.

I'm assuming this is an LCD monitor. If you are sure the monitor is the problem, then your monitor's display driver circuit is probably getting close to failing. When one of the three colors (red, green, blue) becomes intermittent, the screen takes on the hue of the working colors. In your case it sounds like the blue is starting to fail.

A repair technician may be able to replace the circuit.

Red has vanished from my monitor

Looks like your video card is having the problem then. Did you connect your monitor to another PC too?

1. check the monitor on other PC if the problem is same that means the VGA cord or the Pins have gone faulty.

2. Just bend and cable and keep monitoring the display where it stablises to normal, and tie thw cacle at that point with something.
