Question about Computers & Internet
What you have explained it sounds like the monitor itself is faulty and nothing to do with the computer, it may be worth trying another monitor to see if the same thing happens.
If the screen is fine with another monitor, then your monitors lcd backlight is beginning to fail, these can be changed out but can be fiddly.
Next it could be the graphics card, is it the original, or has it been updated to this one, it could be your power supply is on its way out, and is not pumping out enough watts to power the graphics card properly and therefore you are getting the fade that you speak of. The power supply in these computer are normally no more than 300watts, so upgrading these computers do somtimes involve upgrading the power supply first.
hope this helps and post back what you find.
