You might be able to take back the monitor since you just bought it, but manufacturers generally have a specified number of bad pixels for which they deem the panel to be functioning acceptably and they will only replace it if the number of bad pixels exceeds that limit.
Redhat 9 is rather old and I don't remember if this will work, but just in case get to a prompt and type 'setup' as root. If it is there you will have several choices of what to set up. Choose X configuration. If your monitor is not in the list, select one of the generic LCD monitors that match the native resolution of your monitor.
You could also tweak /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a resolution that will work but I doubt you want to tackle that.
