LCD MONITOR PROBLEM

I have an IBM 17" LCD Monitor, analogue model 9495-AG1.Computer runs Windows XP Home, my graphics card is NVidia Geforce 2. This is the problem:
The graphics are as good as it gets for this setup, but every now and then the screen fades from white to yellowish, then snaps back again after a while. No big deal because the picture is still vivid, but it is a bit annoying! My question is:
Is this likely to be a graphics card problem, a backlight problem or a fault with the monitor electronics?
Thanks, Keith

Sounds like a monitor problem. You should contact IBM, who will have a support line. If you describe the problem to them, they will know whether or not it is a monitor fault. If so they will arrange to replace it for you.

Thanks Kestrel. Would that it were that easy to get a response from IBM!!! I trawled their website but found the troubleshooting section o no use whatever. I guess the support phone number for the UK is somewhere there, so I'll have another look.
Thanks for the advice anyway. Keith
