Is my monitor dying?

We had bad storms here last pm and I unplugged both computer and monitor.  Now today The colors on my monitor are lime green aound the edges for about 2 inches, my start button is a red/brown (windows xp).  The only place I have "normal" color is top and center of screen.  Does this mean my monitor is getting ready to take a crap?


Thanks

When I went to do my errands today, I shut off my computer & monitor, when I turned it all back on, all is normal.
