know nothing about xbox, but my first thought is try the monitor on a good computer and the xbox on another good monitor.

sounds like a bad monitor. with 19" monitor for $89.99, its usally not cost effective to fix the bad one.

"most people say just replace the capacitors will that fix the problem"
First, I don't think I belive this. Even if this is true, do you have the tools, parts, and ability to do this? If not, than compare an estiamte of the cost of someone repairing it to the cost of a new monitor and make your decision.

And when i said most people i meant i went on forums and they said the LP1925 gateway monitor is known for bad capacitors.
I already bought a new monitor for less then 40 bucks and if any one is going to repair it its going to be me I'm not going to be charged 100 bucks so it might work i don't know if the capacitor is going to resolve the problem but for me if i do it i'm only going to lose 2 dollars in capacitors. And yes i have the tools and skill to replace capacitors I've done it before for my mom computer.
