    My monitor Dell 17in flat screen will dislplay all colors great. But if the cable to the cpu or the monior gets moved or bumped. Or if I am inside my PC installing a card and then close it up and turn it on the display has a yellow cast.
    Could it be the VGA card, the Cable or something else. Where should I start checking?
    Thanks,
    Alan in San Antonio

    Is the screen constantly yellow or is it intermittent?

    Usually it is caused by faulty GFX card or bad connection with VGA pins. Do you have the VGA cable screws tightened? Is there a bent or missing pin in the VGA slot? Try checking those. Have you tried a different VGA cable?

    I will replace the VGA cord first and then work from there, thanks for the info.
