Doug, I figured that but where is the graphic card? My monitor is 9 years old.

Edit to add that the yellow tint comes and goes.

It's in the computer where the monitor plugs in. It could be a separate card or built into the motherboard. I've had color problems with both a monitor failing and a graphics card failing. If you have another monitor swap it out. If you have a laptop plug the monitor into that. With it coming and going it is going to be hard to be sure what it is. HOw old is your computer.?

Called my computer guy and he also thinks it is the monitor. Will borrow one from my daughter to make sure before I buy another one.

Thanks for your help
