✔ Best Answer
Try a different monitor if possible, just for testing purposes. If that monitor does not have the same problems, then your Dell monitor is faulty and needs replacing. Repairing it or getting it repaired is not a good idea because it would cost almost as much as buying a new monitor online.

If a different monitor has the same problems, then your graphics card is probably faulty, so replace that instead.
