The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less
Kindly unplug the monitor form the back of the computer and check the display,There would be a self test ,screen that would run on the monitor . Check if the screen in green in the self test.
You can also restore the setting of the monitor to factory reset, sometimes there a static that builds up on the screen and can cause the problem. Press the menu button in the front and use the + or - keys to select factory reset and press menu again.
If nothing of the above works the monitor has gone bad, if the monitor was purchased with the system then it would have the systems warranty.
If you have purchased the monitor on seprate order it would have 3 yr warranty
NOTE: You can also lock or unlock the OSD by pushing and holding the Menu button for 15 seconds. In this mode All buttons will be locked including the "Menu" button. You can unlock by pushing and holding the Menu button for 15 seconds.
