    This was begging for it:

    Wiggle your monitor data cable from the back of the monitor and from the back of the PC. Ideally, watch the screen when you go to do it. Do the colors flicker? If so, you've got a kink in the cable some where. If not, unplug the data cable from the back of the PC and check if there's any bent pins (which I pretty highly doubt, but it doesn't cost you anything to check). If any are bent, carefully straighten them out (and be careful! - they can break).

    If that still doesn't fix the problem, you might try reseating your video card. I doubt that would be the cause, but again, its free and it might help. After that, try another monitor. Is the 2nd monitor blue too? If so, its probably your video card. If not, it was your 1st monitor going bad.
