So basically my monitor is an LCD 22'' TV and i've never had a problem with it. I also have a brand new computer and if it matters, the GPU is a HD7770.

Pretty much what happened was that i left my room to grab something and cameback in 5 minutes to see that my screen has a light tint of yellow in it. I dont know if it has anything to do with it, but there was some mediocre thunder during this period, nothing too crazy. I checked the Blue monitor cable to see if it was loose but it wasn't, dont see how it could've gone loose anyway. So does anyone know what i should do?

If you have not done so, disconnect the video cable at both ends and then re-attach.

Re-seat the graphics card; meaning pull it out and plug it back in. Sounds strange but this has actually fixed an issue when I was trouble shooting my friend's PC.

Lastly, try installing new drivers or reinstalling your current drivers.

Actually, that re-seating has worked for me in the distant past. I had a Western Digital controller card for my hard drives. It basically stopped responding. Re-seating it solved that strange issue.
