I increased the memory and now the monitor stays amber.  It is not the monitor because it works fine when I plug it in to another computer.

The computer is an Optiplex GX 270.  I cannot read the monitor type as it was made in China and all the writing is in chinese on it.

If I turn the monitor off and back on, the green light stays lit for about 5 seconds and then the monitor makes a clicking sound and goes back amber.

I have checked the memory chips and they seem to be in ok.  The monitor card is integrated into the motherboard.
