Re: Monitor turns off: Light goes from green to yellow
Check first your signal cable from cpu to monitor, reseat or retighten its nut. Or test it using an spare monitor, if this also happens. If it does not then its practical to have the monitor be replaced.
Other way around like fixing its cable is also a consideration it maybe also a broken connection.

When the monitor button turns to yellow that means the monitor is on standby mode. Try rebooting the the computer after you have connected it to your modem. If the light goes to yellow again check that the computer is on and that all the cables are connected properly. HP Computer monitors are a little confusing, Sometimes depressing the power button again while it is yellow will turn it on and should so green.
You sound like you have pc problems can you put another monitor on your pc? if it does the same exact thing you have a pc problem and not a monitor problem also try the monitor on someone else pc to be sure it works.
This light sequence typically means there is no signal coming from the computer. You can verify by trying the monitor on another computer or trying a different monitor that is known to work on this computer.
When you turn on most dell monitors they come on with a yellow light, then turn green when the monitor and video source synch. If your light is not turning from yellow to green, your monitor is either dead or not getting a signal from the video source it's plugged into. Verify in your BIOS settings that you have selected to output video through an installed card and not from the motherboard source. If the BIOS settings are correct, your monitor has died. If the light is turning green after you turn the computer on, press the menu button on the monitor and adjust the brightness/contrast until you have a picture. If you don't see anything when the menu button is pressed, then again your monitor is likely dead.
turn on monitor first then the hp if all is well just remember sequance if not then check cable to monitor from hp if it can be replaced then replace cable but check hp with another monitor first just incase the monitor is gone.
Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
Unplug the power cord.
Wait 5 seconds.
Plug in the power cord.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
