monitor problems

Hello, i've been having a few difficulties with my monitor for a little while least i hope its my monitor.
I've got a Dell dimension 2400, fairly standard low spec computer, with a basic monitor.
Although the computer seems to be working ok, i've beem experiencing what seems like power surges on the monitor, this has now developed to a point where the screen image is expanded beyond the screen size. I've tried adjusting the resolution, but this just ends up with the screen getting darker. to use it at all involves a painful use of the controls external to the monitor to move the screen around.
I think i need to replace the monitor, but i don't want to spend money on one if it sounds like its something else...whddayouthink?

Sounds like either the monitor or the graphics card and the only way to tell is by substitution. Obviously it would be easier to try a different monitor.
