What is causing the yellow tint on my computer monitor?

YellowColoredMonitorFilter: Something in my PC broke, and now everything's a yucky yellow tint. Anyone have this experience, and if so, how did you solve it? Google turns up one search that blames it on the monitor, but I'm praying it's the video card, or a short in a cord. File this also under ICan'tAffordAWholeNewFreakinMonitorFilter.

A few things that might be of relevance:
1) My optical mouse has stopped working lately. It'll just stop moving entirely (and the inside lights will go dim, the way it does when the computer's booting) until I either unplug/replug it or reboot.
2) I just reinstalled XP, and am in the process of reinstalling all of my programs.
3) My video card is dusty (I checked.)
I thought it could be an overheating problem, so I took the cover off and turned a fan on it.
