    My Dell monitor 2707WFP display a yellowish tint most noticeable on white background when connected to Dell E7270 laptop via a docking station using DVI cable.

    So how can I go about to get clear white? I feel like I am looking at my Android mobile Pixel 2 night mode.

    Bummer, connected another PC and found the screen is yellowish. After 10 years only notice after getting a new primary monitor and put it side by side. Is going to be tough to move between the 2 monitor, but then again I might just get use to it. Not too keen in spending more money to get another new monitor as secondary.

    LCD monitors often have different modes: Gaming, movie, text etc. and some of those change the tint. Have a play with the menus: you may well find that changing the mode will fix the tint.

    Play around with the monitor setting, reduce red and some green and lower the brightness. A bit better. Dell 2707WFP was the top model at its time....

    Never knew that, was expecting top of the range model (back at the time) will not deteriorate.
