Assuming we're talking about a CRT and you have already turned up the contrast and brightness, then the following should help. Take off the rear cover, and look for the flyback transformer. It will have a single wire about 1/4" thick (and usually red) running to the top of the picture tube and will have a suction cup there. On the the bottom and on the side of the flyback, look for 2 or 3 knobs that have a place for a Phillips screwdriver in the middle of them. One of them will be marked "Screen". I recommend using a screwdriver-it's more precise than using your fingers to turn this up (to the right) to increase the brightness, but beware: turn it just a little bit at a time. Going too far may burn out critical circuitry. It is safe to do this with the cover off and power on as long as you're using an plastic handled screwdriver and keeping your hands away from anything else. There's about 50,000 volts in the wire to the top of the tube, so there's no point in taking chances. Good luck!!

Monitor comes up in color then fades to black and white. Bad video card or bad monitor or what?

Connect the monitor to a different desktop/laptop, and see if it still "fades". If it does, the monitor is the problem.

In my years of working on LCD's, your inverter (basically like a ballast in a flourscent lamp) is bad/going out. Crack open the case and look for a big pink and white wire going to a pcb (usually located under a shield) and remove it and check for puffed capacitors. If there are some change them and that usually fixes the problem. If there are no signs of anything wrong on the inverter, get the numbers off the pcb and google or ebay the numbers, usually youll find a replacement realitively fast.
