Question about Compaq (401231B31) UPS System
Usually this is caused by a bad VGA cable. Try wiggling the cable around and see if you can get it to come back to normal. I have one PC right now that I've had to attach a rubber band to to keep the cable in a certain spot so I don't get a tint. Unfortunately, if your VGA cable is built into the monitor, you'll have to replace the monitor but if it's not then you can just purchase a new one and that should solve the whole problem.
If it's not the cable (i.e., you wiggled and twisted it near the computer's plug in and it doesn't change at all) then it's either the monitor itself or the video card. Test the monitor on another computer and see if it does it then reattach it to the original system. If it does then we know it's the monitor.
