Solved Small Part of Computer Screne is dim. Is this fixable?

Specs: Windows 10
A small part of my computer screen on the bottom is dimmer than the rest of my screen. I've attempted to adjust the settings for the monitor by resetting them, still no luck. I've had this issue for a few months now but the dim part would usually go away after an hour and come back any time I had to restart my computer or whenever the monitor lost power. Now the dim part stays for over 9+ hours if it goes away at all. I don't know what's causing it and finding help online for a Desktop Monitor is hell since google only shows me labtop issues. :( Any tips/suggestions on how to fix it or if my screen is even fixable?

Usually LED's last for decades but occasionally you will find one that goes bad prematurely. It may be that the LED itself is going out or possible a bad solder joint if it's intermittent. If your handy with electronics or a soldering iron, you might try poking around inside to see if it might be a loose connection or a possible bad solder joint.

I doubt any others will go out, as I said LED's usually last for decades so if you can live with it, you should still get many years out of your monitor.

Have you tried connecting another external monitor to your computer (desktop, not laptop, I assume?)

Desktop Computer, yes, not labtop. I have one other screen I was considering hooking up to see if it works but I haven't found the proper cables for it yet since that screen is much older than my current one.

I do though have my tv hooked up to the same graphics card as my current monitor through a hdmi cable and there are no issues with the tv.

Most likely one of the LED's that is used for the backlight has burned out.If it's still under warranty, try to get it fixed. If not, it would probably be easiest to just replace the monitor.

It still fixes itself after some time has past and the whole screen will be fine again until the monitor gets turned off. Does that simply mean that the back light for that small portion is dying, but hasn't completely burned out yet?
