NOW that I've got my old PC downstairs on the network, thanks to you all, there is just the problem of the monitor. It's a 2000 Sony 17-in, and I think when I moved it downstairs it sat next to a big PA speaker magnet for quite a while because the color is all messed up. it's all blue-green with no real red. I've tried adjusting from control panel and from the monitor control itself but I can't get it to balance out. Can this be fixed? Do they still "degauze" color CRTs the way they used to do with old color TVs? I remember we had to be careful not to vacuum too close to the old color Packard Bell or the colors would go whack like that.
