Assuming you can rule out the PC and the cable (are the pins ok?) then it sounds like it needs component-level electrical troubleshooting.

Sounds like a bent pin in the male conector or one of the RGB wires is broken internally (inside the cable, from bending at the conector neck or stretching the cable), on the otherhand if it is an lcd panel then maybe it was exposed to too much UV light and degraded the color filters. (like how old pepsi cans turn yellow on the side of the road)

Dell makes cheap crappy parts with child labor in 3rd world countrys anyway. if somthing costs more because it is a diferent brand, it is usually because the quality of the components used is better and less likely to break (like SONY or HP for example) my sugestion... get a new one and dont be cheapo cause you'll get what you pay for in the long run. :^/

Green horizontal

I believe that you must reset the colors of the screen by the buttons on it or try to set colors by the software that the product came with it if any. There should be a setting to configure the 4 basic colours like red green black etc. Try to adjust green. If nothing helpes go the monitor back to test it by the store you bought it if there is warranty. Hope that helped!

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats

Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
