Question about Dell U2711 Monitor
The right half of the image moves a little bit to the left (something about 5mm) for just an instant. Problem occurs randomly : sometimes 2 or 3 in 1 minute ; sometimes 1 in 30 minutes tested 2 different graphic cards, 2 different dvi cable, and different refresh rates. I know u2711 display uses 2 chip to process the high definition. One for the half left and 1 for the right so it explains why a lot of problem concerns only one half of the display. Thanks in advance for an idea ...
I have the same problem and this is how I found your post.
I suspected both cable & display board so changed both to no avail.
Searching in google "flickering streaks dell u2711" I found the cause and the solution here:
This may be too late or inadequate for your specific problem but as it may help, I still post this potential answer.
I have contacted Dell support to ask if I can have a try at "repairing" (cleaning connections & spraying anti-oxidant) myself without losing my maintenance contract otherwise I have to stay too long without this otherwise excellent monitor. I am an ordinary user, not a technician, but this solution seems simple enough if careful.

Tries Dell website to upgrade the latest software for the monitor for stablitation and compabilities.U check the compabilities with the OS Win 7 or 8 for drivers that work best and for the 2 graphic cards u are using.

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.

Well if you have a warranty please send it back before you damage it and then don't get anything. See if it has a screen reset button on the front or back such as factory reset. Hope this helps.
