If it's a CRT monitor (ie the old bulky type with a tube) it could be one of the colour guns has failed inside it. I could be wrong, but that's what I got when my old monitor died. Obviously your PC is okay if I'm right.

You need to connect aanother monitor which you know is okay, just to be sure about it. If there's no green screen with a different monitor, then it's def your monitor that's faulty and not the PC.

Thank you for your reply. It comes and it goes. I don't have another monitor to do that with. I kind of thought it was the monitor also. This am it did not give me the green screen. I will keep my fingers crossed. Again thanks for your help.
It's Dell's flat screen monitor.
