Default What just happened to my monitor?

I have a Daytech 17" flatscreen monitor that I purchased in Sept '03. I was just looking around the web, and the picture all of a sudden started to go funny and scrolling up the screen creating multiple images. It got progressively worse over about 8 seconds, and now all that can be seen is purplish white splotches and no picture. I tried unplugging the monitor from my computer, but left it plugged into the power source, and it still showed the same purply white screen. Did my monitor just burn out - do things like these happen over 2 years with a monitor like this? FWIW I leave my computer running almost always, but the monitor has a power saver feature that puts it into standby mode after 20 mins of inactivity. Any suggestions?
