One of my monitors is showing a green overlay on the desktop when I start using the computer for that day. Other items will display over it but it bleeds through into white backgrounds like Outlook.
The green covers half of monitor 1 on the left side but only half and only that side.

It goes away after a few minutes.

It might be relevant that I never turn off the computer but the monitors are powered down each night.

Any idea what it is?

Tried wiggling the connectors ? Sometimes if one pin is making poor contact it can do that, depending on the type of monitor connection.

Haven't tried anything tbh, just put up with it.

I am using DVI connections to these two monitors as my HDMI are used elsewhere, its possible one of them is loose.

More relevant if it was the other way around.

Nothing interfering near it?

Monitor does the same thing when connected to a different PC?
Monitor does the same thing when using a different cable?

You'll have to do a bit of experimenting.

Yeah looks like it

Not sure if anything is interfering, I got a lot of stuff on the desk.
I'll plug it into a laptop and test it tonight, can't use the DVI for that thou so have to use HDMI.

Haven't got a stereo speaker close to that side of the monitor?

Half a meter away (ish)
