In case you have connected both the DVI and VGA cables to the back monitor can cause this problem. Try unplugging one of the cables and check if the problem gets resolved

How do i adjust the stand so that the monitor is is not to low on the stand

Here's the manual for your monitor.

Sorry I don't have better news!
