    My monitor has been giving me a fit lately. It is a SONY that came with me desktop, 17 flat CRT. I have had problems getting it to display the correct refresh rate for a while. I updated the Catalyst drivers for my video card and now it is VERY dark. When I go into the control center and adjust gamma,etc and all that it looks better..but not like it should :( Then when entering a game sometimes it goes back to being dark and vice versa to the desktop.

    Call me lucky, but I have never had a monitor go out on me.....Does it sound like this one is fixing to??

    Ok if you have to start going into the gamma and start going into fine adjustments on your monitor it's time to throw it out and get a new one.

    Cell phone obsolescence 2 years and you throw it out.
