    I use my desktop regularly, and I turned it on today and it worked. But while my PC was starting up i accidentally brushed my graphics card with a piece of metal from another part of my PC. That was when my monitor's colors got messed up and it had green at 100%. I turned off my PC to try and rectify the problem, but the monitor stayed on and now it won't turn off unless I unplug it. My PC works just fine, but my monitor won't acknowledge anything i do. It won't show anything when i start my PC or turn off. The light is stuck on yellow.

    I moved to a new home and set up my Dell computer weeks later. The monitor comes on green for a short second before returning to a solid yellow. This is the monitor - Dell D1728D-LS VS17X Monitor. I can press the buttons to the left and get a response, i.e. "Digital input. Self Test Feature Check" comes up and when I hold the key down long enough I get a green light on the monitor. So far, nothing.

A yellow light indicates no signal input. Test it on another machine.
