    Well,

    My monitor is acting weird. One point its a colour, but then suddenly the screen goes to a yellowy colour for a long period of time.

    And it doesn't change for several days...

    I can still work the computer fine, but I use Photoshop a lot to create logos and etc, and the colours are hard to judge when its a yellowy colour

    Anyone know whats wrong with my monitor?

    It could be many things. Loose connection, overheating problem or failing component(s) etc.

    I might help if you tell us more detail like is it an LCD or CRT? Perhaps a make or model number?

    How old is it? Is it still under warranty?

    Its under a year old, around 9 months approxmitely. Still under warranty, it isn't a flat screen.

    The VGAPlug, is that the one thats connected to the Hard Drive from the Monitor?

    No. The hard drive is in the case.

    Check the monitor cable. Bend it and move it around to see if the problem stops.

    Ah, I tried moving the cables - no luck. I'll shut down the monitor for like an hour or so and see if that fixes it.

    Thanks for yah help
