From what I could find, this model PC came with XP installed originally.

I am AMAZED it even runs Windows 10!

The distorted color issue could be the monitor, or it could also be the video chipset failing (due to age).

You need to see if you can borrow a second monitor from someone and hook that up to the PC.  If the color distortions appear on that too, it's your video chipset failing.  If they do not, it's your monitor failing.
