If you've established that the problem is definitely in the monitor (e.g. does the same thing on another computer, so can't be the video card), then the commonest cause I've seen for symptoms like that is poor contact in the connector(s) of the LVDS cable that carries the signal internally from the monitor's mainboard to the panel.

wow thanks for the speed reply and the information.... :thumbup2:

 

Suspected it was internal yet googling was coming back with nothing but dead/stuck pixels which i was certain it wasnt.

 

Any thoughts on if this is something i could remedy myself or am i poop out of luck and need a new monitor?

 

thanks again for the assistance

If you're a handy person who is willing to try breaking open a monitor, it's one of the few faults that could feasibly be tackled by a DIYer. But monitors are often tricky to get into without doing some damage if they're the snap-together type, so if you don't feel confident about trying, it would best be done professionally at a repair shop. That usually involves a fee though, to inspect and confirm what it is and repair cost.
