Default second monitor yellow?

I bought an adapter so i could use my old monitor in the second ouptu of my graphics card, but whatever monitor i plug into it appears tinted yellow. Any ideas on how i can fix this?

Check to make sure that the pins are not damaged. You say that you had purchased an 'adapter.' Might it be a DVI to VGA one? If that is the case, make sure that you didn't bend any of the pins and check if any have fallen loose while connecting the adapter.

Also check and see if the monitor cable itself is bad. You may want to try it in another PC and see if the colors are adjusted.

Of course.. check and see first if any of this could be corrected from the monitor menu... such as tint or something like that.

Hope this helps!

nope monitor works fine normally and none of the pins are bent. Yep it is a DVI to VGA adapter.

Then the only other 2 options is the 2nd port on the card is messed up or the adapter is.
