IMO either the drivers are corrupt or your video card has an issue, the card could be dying or over heating. Is it nice and clean inside the box?

thanks for answering. I just updated the drivers last week. I was wondering about the card so I just ordered another one this morning. I'll check to see if the inside needs cleaning too

Did you try the monitor with a different cable and a different computer?
When colors are off, generally it is one of the following items causing the problem: Cable (HDMI in your case), Monitor, or Video card (possibly driver related or hardware).
As for the sound issue, does the new monitor have speakers built in? If it does not, you would need to change your default audio playback device to "speakers" if you have them plugged into the green 3.5mm jack. I suspect it is set to HDMI because your old monitor had speakers which were working.
Here is a video that shows how to get to audio playback devices and change them:

Thanks to both of you for your help, it was my cable after all. But everything is nice and clean now!
