Assuming this is a CRT monitor.

Try using the Degauss setting on the monitor buttons. You may have to do it a couple of times.

This could be also due to a fluorescent lamp or other monitor too close.

Try degaussing your screen using a magnet , wipe it side ways (3mm clearance from the crt) until bloches are removed, some monitor has built in degausing device, try doing that on your monitors menu.

Screen particially blacking out with vertical lines at bottom of my DELL laptop. at the bottom of laptop screen there are vertical lines @ 2" they are blue, dark gray,white, purple, light green lines....


Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.

I have yellow and purple blotches on screen


I had this same problem on my Mitsubishi rear projection WD52527 model television. The optic engine was changed twice, and the blotches were still there. It turned out that it was the mirror inside the television that was causing the purple blotches. It was filthy and once the repairman took it out and cleaned it the discolorations were gone. Hope this helps

LCD Dell Monitor displaying purple and green rather then picture.


sounds like your monitor is starting to go out. if there are any speakers near your monitor, it is likely magnetic interference. try moving your monitor to a different area and see if it still does this. if it does, i would replace the monitor. if it doesn't, just simply reorganize the area around your monitor and it should go away after degaussing the screen.

Severe gradient issues / problems with darker grays


So your sure when you go into the monitor settings, and color, it is set to like 9300k or something? It probably isn't the monitor, because the video games you said display just fine.
