I have had this monitor for a few months when one day i turned it on and i had yellow on half my screen. when you first power it the acer logo comes on and nothing is wrong but as soon as the windows logo comes on and it's loading exactly half of the screen has a yellowish tint to it. just the left side. could it be the video cable or something else?
If the displayed logo is good, but windows is not, it suggests a problem with the windows graphic driver or windows itself.
In the early stage of boot, it uses a graphic display from the BIOS. This changes to the Windows display as it gets on its feet.
If you have Knoppix or some bootable CD/DVD, try that. Then you will know if it is Software or hardware.

Have you used the Fn button on your laptop and changed the video display Icon on the Blue Function keys. You need to change the display wait a few seconds for it to take affect. There are several modes try them all so you know how to use them.
It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!
