I just install new windows in my PC. Everything look OK on my 17" LCD. But about 5 minute later. The screen become a little amper.
I check the video driver and found it is ok.
The LCD still work ok at other PCs.
This is my Gateway GT4010 computer.

Please advise.

Endstage CCFL LCD failures tend to get reddish or that direction. But since it's on one machine I'd check my color settings. To really test it out I boot up my BIOS screen and ask if it's still that old colors it used to be.

The first time when PC boot up, it appears normal. However,about 3 minutes later the screen become a little yellow (or amper).

Try another video card.

If it is as you state, that should fix it.

Also I wonder if the video card is overheating. So little is known about the machine...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
