    i have a dell dimension xps m233s w/windows 98 and a couple of days ago i unpugged it and moved it to another room, when i plugged it back in and started it up the light on the monitor would turn green and after a couple seconds it would turn to yellow but nothing would come up on the screen. i tried another monitor but the same thing happens, and i also reseated the video card and still nothing. i'm very concerned because i have important data on the computer that i need soon and i refuse to wait on hold with dell tech support EVER again!!! Please Help!!!

    You've likely bent one of the pins on the cable that connects the monitor to the video card (same cable for both monitors? - or are they permanently attached?). You won't lose any data from the drive.
    How bad is the color change?

    This is surely a hardware problem. Rest assured YOUR DATA SEEMS TO BE SAFE HERE.

    Have you tried to attach a different monitor on this machine or the current monitor on some other machine?
