    this happens when u place magnetic items like speakers close to monitor. Now-a-days generally speakers are magnetically shieldied but maybe ur speakers are not. Due to the presence of effective magnetic field around monitor, the gaussian field of monitor disrupts thus resulting in red, blue or green patches.

    To remove those patches instantly use the degauss option from ur monitor's OSD or if ur monitor does not support this feature then turn off ur monitor for about 30 mins. and dont keep ur speakers too close to ur monitor next time..

    If your problem is due to external magnetic fields like suave_guy said, the abmormal colour will be in patches at certain places on the monitor screen.

    If the colour changes uniformly over the whole screen, then that's a different matter. This happens when the CRT (picture tube) does not receive the proper signals on its Red, Green and Blue (R-G-B) input lines.

    This can be due to various reasons. The most common ones are -

    1. Your monitor signal cable is not firmly plugged into the VGA output of your video card. You can check that easily.

    2. There is an intermittent break in one or more of the wires inside your monitor signal cable. This can happen if you've been using your computer for some time with the wire directly behind the VGA connector pressed hard against something like a wall.

    3. There's an intermittent break in the RGB circuit inside the monitor itself, probably a dry solder. This can be checked by a competent technician.

    Then it's definitely the third possibility I mentioned. It should not be difficult for a good technician to fix.
