Have you tried adjusting the color controls for the monitor?
yes but it does not affect the white balance of the monitor. i cant get rid of the yellow tint by any means, including the ati control panel. i have tried it on another monitor, a crt , its white on that so its not the graphics card.
Yeah, most LCDs seem to have a bit of a color cast (so slight in many cases you'd only notice when they're next to each other). Cheaper LCDs especially seem to have less pure whites. This isn't just Dell, go to a Best Buy or Fry's and look at the same white screen on several LCDs next to each other, you'll probably notice quite a bit of difference. If you prefer cooler (bluer) whites Sony tend towards that a bit more. The most neutral whites to my eyes currently were on some LG Flatrons, and some higher-end Samsungs (193P for example). Personally I'd rather have a cooler white than a yellow one. However, I've noticed that in some circumstances Sonys are just too cool, to the point where they can't render colors as naturally (colors may be vivid, but they won't be natural). Yes, you can adjust panels, but what I've noticed is that each panel seems to have a native color temprature, at which it looks its best and brightest, deviating from this default will generally make it loose some brightness and color gamut.
I have the same problem. New system. Two 1704FPT's. There is a terrible pink hue on one of the monitors. I have found no adjustment that remedies this. I originally was sent one FPV and one FPT monitor. I thought that was the problem so I sent the FPV back. Same thing with new monitor. This makes it very difficult to do photographic work. Do I need to send this new monitor back also? I am running the same driver default software on both of them.

do both of your 1704fpt displays some kind of colour discolouration to white? or is it just one of them? because if one of them display pure white that would indicate a problem for me and for you. i have only the one 1704fpt so i have nothing to compare it too.
maybe we can figure out if its a fault or a "feature" for this model or not.
