My monitor stays on amber when attached to my tower.

I hooked the monitor up to my lap-top and extended the screen..bingo! monitor came to life.

So monitor and cable must be functioning. I then tried the tower with a different monitor, worked fine.

So the tower seems fine, the monitor fine and the cable fine??? Just the tower doesnt seem to like this particular monitor.

You can swap monitors with it powered up (done it loads of times - not good practice but shouldn't be a problem).

Boot with working monitor enter safe mode and uninstall monitor drivers / graphics drivers.

shut down swap monitors and see if it will run the monitor with the basic driver it will try to load then reinstall graphics drivers.
