the first thing to suspect is the monitor
try swapping it out and see

Or it could be the video card going bad.
Only way to know for sure would be to swap one (monitor or video card) out for a know good one to test.

P.S. I guess repering the monitor wouldent be cost efficiant?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

may be cheaper just to replace it

Actually the most likely case is the monitor, if you could borrow one just to test with. Or if you have (or can borrow) another video card to install before buying a new one.

I lost green on my monitor and found it was a bent pin on my monitor cable. I found it hard to straighten, but have got it working again.
