Question about Computers & Internet
The screen on the monitor is yellow when I turn my computer on. It acts as though it's in sleep mode. Is it a monitor problem? This desktop was purchased in 2001. I do not have the model number, but it is a desktop.
It is likely not a problem with the monitor, because the lights indicate that the monitor is turned on.
It may be a video card problem. Do you know if you have a video card, or if it is integrated graphics? Check all of the connections from the monitor to the computer. If you can connect the monitor to another computer and it works, then it is definitely your computer.
Very, very unlikely, but it could be that you're using a damaged cable. If you have another one on hand, try it. If not, don't go and buy one because this likely isn't the problem.
Another thing you could try is turning the computer off, unplugging the power cable (going to your computer), and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. Then plug it in again and power it up.
I posted this solution in your other topic. No need to make more than one.

Your computer monitor or laptop screen will enter sleep mode after your computer remains idle for a set period of time. You can disable sleep mode if you prefer the screen to remain illuminated. You merely need to change a setting in the Windows Power Management properties box.

Click "Start" and "Control Panel".
Click "System and Security" and "Power Options". This will bring up a new dialog box.
Click the menus to the right of "Turn off the Display" and set them both to "Never". This will disable sleep mode.
