unwanted color change in mandrake 10.1

Due to a monitor failure, I installed an old phillips 105. I have had no problems till then. Now when I use firefox or mozilla the colors change on the menu bars its so bad I cannot see the clock yet when I close the browser the colors return to normal. The change seems to involve a very dark blue ie, my clock colors are red numbers on a white background,as I write this the numbers are light blue with a dark blue backgroud. normally the menu bar taskbar is light grey at the present its lilac. Any ideas?
Thanks Tewaru

Sounds like a problem with the monitor, although I may be wrong. Can you check the pins on your monitor cable to see if they are bent or broken?
