Sounds like the Moniter is damaged. Contact Dell and ask for a replacement/repair.

Moniter = Monitor

it would not be anything like magnetism or anything no?

if not - ill get them to replace it - good thing is i have my old monitor so i can still use my computer :)

It could be something to do with a magnetic field. To see if this helps, try looking through the "Menu" display for this option...

my monitor came with a CD maybe i should run that? - (i cant find anything in the menu display sorry.)

Do you have a non-shielded speaker(s) too close to the monitor?

If so try degaussing the monitor and moving the speaker(s) further away.

Also check from Display Properties that the refresh rate (if it is a CRT) is set to 85MHz, which prevents flickering being a problem for the vast majority of users.

i have a headset on - logitec premium stereo headset - and i tried degaussing it yesterday - it didnt do alot - ill try chaning the refresh rate thanks :)

I have a halogen desk light and if its too near it makes the screen shake slightly.

it seems ok now i have changed the refresh rate to 85Hz but the quality of the screen now seems not fuzzy but slightly blury but i can still see things fine
