Is this a laptop or desktop? When you say "blue hue", do you mean you can still see what's on the screen, it's just tinted blue? That suggests a problem with the monitor or the cable connecting it to the computer, if it's a desktop. Can you borrow another monitor and either swap out your's (if it's a desktop) or connect it to the VGA port (if it's a laptop)?

Check the "temperature" settings in your monitors setup menus.

Is it a CRT screen or a LCD screen? It sounds like a bad cable/connection, but an aging CRT can also give you bad color as it starts to go.

Default re blue hue to screen...

This is a FPD 1760 TFT LCD color monitor...have had it for about 5 years.

Do not another one to plug in to see if it is the problem.

Does this sound like a monitor problem?

Thanks,
HW

If its an LCD and its changing color, it sounds like a faulty connection. You can try and ensure everything is connected tightly, and look for cracked or crimped cabling. If you don't see anything broken, it could be something bad either inside the monitor or computer. The computer you can peak into, the monitor however, you can't. If you haven't changed anything, its either a bad connection or bad monitor imo.
