Re: My monitor changes colors
CRT monitors can last way past 4 years if taken care of.
Please give more detail of your problem since there's not much we can tell by your description. What colors? what was the progression of the problem? can you attach a screen shot?

CRT monitors have three color "guns" in them - Red, Blue, & Green. If one of them is starting to go south you will have a tinge as you describe. To make sure it's the monitor, try connecting a different monitor. If the monitor is the problem, it's not worth fixing. Replace it.
If, after changing the monitor you still have a color tinge, you have a problem with your video device in your PC and you need to have it checked out by a PC Technician.

That really happens if you've been using the monitor for a couple of years already. There no fix for that but to replace the monitor, I would recommend getting an LCD or LED monitor, those are energy efficient.
3 years old will more likely to need new set of caps, not all monitors come with built-in speakers. See failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums I would not buy a 3 years old 15", save the money for newer and bigger monitor.
Did someone change the setting on the monitor itself ? check those settings and then check the setting on your graphics card, sometimes you can change those setting and it will effect the color that you are seeing
1. if your monitor is old. due to aging it happens normally 2. Check monitor signal cable 3. Else the colour processing circuit is defective. 4. Check whether your monitor settings are set correct(default) 5. Contact monitor service centre for further rectification
