It sounds like either an internal wire is loose, or possibly in the connector to your video cable. Make sure the connections for your video cable are tight both at the computer and at the monitor. If they are, try a different cable (cables are much cheaper than monitors, always start with the easy solutions first). If the problem is internal to the monitor, then it is up to you to decide whether to try to diagnose/fix it yourself, or buy a new monitor. The cost to pay someone else to fix it is likely more than the value of the monitor.

SOURCE: Monitor color display problem
Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.
The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.
Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.
Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.
The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.
After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!
