No, i do not think it is dying... but i think it is infeced with some nasty... for future reference, you need to state what operating system and what model of the computer, dell is making over 500 models over the years, telepathy do not work very well... i assume you have some variant of windows
re-start computer in safe mode with networking enabled, download any on line virus checker and run it... it can take some hours before it finishes. follow that procedure.
1. switch off computer - leave for at least 20sec
2. switch on and repeatedly click f8, you will have selelction screen
3. select safe mode with networking
4. log as an administrator, is screen still cloudy? was screen cloudy during boot up? if it is cloudy all the time, there maybe something wrong with videocard or with monitor. let assume that it is clear:

if this is not a software problem, then follow this procedure:
1. borrow known working monitor and check quality of the display, is cloudy?
2. connect your monitor to another computer, is cloudy?
3. if yes is in first instance, your computer is responcible, if yes is in second instance, your monitor is responcible.
