You could have an open circuit in the monitor cable (if you are CERTAIN that the green gun on the monitor is NOT gone). When you say the other colors are correct, how is pure red and pure blue?

Try to put a different monitor on the system. It appears as if the green is either not getting through to the monitor or is lost in the monitor.
It is highly unlikely that the fault should be in the computer, but you'll know when you have tried a different monitor.

You could have a pin bent in the cable.  Just pull off the monitor cable from the CPU and make sure they are all straight.  If that is not the case, you could try adjusting the colors for the monitor via the OSD. (On Screen Display)  Also, the green gun in the monitor might be bad.  I guess that would require shipping it back to the place you bought it from or buying a new one.
