How to fix the monitor setting?

Question

I left my computer on overnight. I was not downloading or installing anything nor had any

programs running. It was just sitting idle on the desktop. However, when I awoke in the

morning, the desktop was a yellowish color and everything from games to web browsers have

this yellowish color. Could it only be the monitor? Or could it be the video card?

Is there anything else it could be? All the monitor, desktop and video card settings are normal

and have been unchanged. Also, the monitor and video card function properly, its just the

yellowish color that is unusual. It also appears that the left side (about 1/4 ") still has the normal color scheme. Thank you. :-)

Check to see if there are any loose connections on the back of your monitor maybe one of the cables is going bad Or it could be the monitor, make sure and double check that your monitor settings are what they should be If you can try connecting a different monitor to your pc then you can tell if its the video card that is going bad.
