Kinda tricky, but maybe try a different monitor of the same wattage, so that you know if it is the monitor or the power supply the problem. Then, if there is no issue with a different monitor of the same power consumption, it means that your computer is fine, but the monitor has a problem. If that is the case, change the monitor. Good luck, friend!

I make no pretense of knowing it all or of having come across every possible problem, I haven't, not by miles, but this is a new one on me.
Text on a screen is simply an array of pixcels which are not switched on if the text is black and in different colours for coloured text. Does anything else get scrambled/distorted on this monitor ? Given the way that the video signal is processed and produced I would expect other things to be affected. Take a screen shot with some of this scrambled text, paste it into any image editor - if all else fails you have Windows Paint - and save the image then look at it in both your Cornea monitor and the other you have access to.
Another simple test is to connect the monitor to a different computer and see if you get gibberish for the text ouptut there. If you do then there is definitely a problem with the monitor. If it works perfectly on a different computer then it is time to start looking at the signal chain - the connecting cable, the video card, the computer PSU and the mobo.

As far as I understood, when he connects the monitor to his PC and starts typing on the keyboard, random letters appear instead of the text that should show up. Otherwise, his monitor is fine and not distorted - only in combination with the keyboard does the monitor start displaying gibberish instead of the actual text that was inputted.

If it affects other computers that are not connected to it in any way apart from being in close proximity, the monitor is definitely faulty and your power supply is good. Change the monitor.

It certainly is a known issue, glad you got it sorted out!
