There are some cloudy spots that appeared on my Dell 24" widescreen monitor...
Kinda cloudy, not super visible, but annoying in light colored shots or white background screens, pixels are all good and intact..

What could have caused this? And is it fixeable? If so how much would it usually cost to repair?

Do these "cloudy spots" appear at the same places all the time? Or do they move around?
I gather this is an LCD monitor?

If they appear in the same spot all the time - then more than likely they are pressure spots caused by something/someone pressing to hard on the screen at that point. It's not cheap to repair as it requires replacement of the LCD screen.
