No red on any screens I plug in

  1. On some random day, there was no red on my screen any longer. I don't know why, but it seems that when I plug in my monitor anything that is supposed to be red is black, and greens seem to be yellowy/grey. When I unplug the monitor, there is a self-test - red is on it. On this monitor options, red appears.
    I have tried to reset the monitor to factory settings to no avail. I tried another monitor - there was no red either. It's clearly the computer's fault. But why and what should I do?
    Thanks in advance.

    Try a different cable or video card and see if anything changes.
