A reinstall of the graphics card drivers should sort it out.

Just to confirm things, have you tried connecting his monitor to your PC?

It'll be a monitor fault - try slapping it with the flat of your hand, on the sides and the top and the back - fairly firmly - and see if the red comes back - if it does, it's an internal fault in the monitor.

This type of problem is very commen as CRT monitors get older.

You're probably right. One of the guns could be failing.

Monitor dark on your machine but OK on sons Right?
How about the other way -try the sons monitor on your machine - what then?
If the red is dark then it suggest the graphics card problem.
You could try setting up the monitor/graphics again.
Get the latest drivers for the card in,
Calibrate the monitor via the Adobe device

That would have been my advice as well. I am a very firm believer in "Percussive Maintenance".
