video card or monitor problem

Specs: Windows Vista
My Dell desktop monitor stopped working the other day. When I push on the brightness buttons a message briefly appears, it states the computer is in sleep mode and to press any key. This does nothing to bring up the monitor screen. The power button is also illuminated in a yellow color as opposed to green. Any thoughts?

yes, it is not receiving a video signal from the computer. Mostl likely, the video card....could try the monitor on another computer or another video card in the dell. But sometimes they just aren't marrying up well, so I suggest you turn the monitor off completely and the computer, turn em both on and try it....if no luck...see above.

Is the video on board or is it on its own card?
