OK, so you're seeing strange distortion of the colors and you
want to figure out if it is a hardware problem or a software problem.
I see. Well, the only suggestion I have is rather low-tech; and
I'm sure you've thought of it already; but I would suggest installing
some other graphical operating system, such as Windows 95, DOS/Win 3.1,
etc. and see how things look then. If you still see the smear,
it's almost certainly a hardware problem. But again, I'm sure you've
thought of that. Maybe someone else has a better idea, but that's
all I know to suggest.
