How big is your monitor-screen size? Make and model might help too. What type of connection are you using, VGA, DVI? Make and model of video card? You should really fill in your system specs. Programs like speccy Speccy - Download can help you sort it out.

Can you press the menu button on your monitor, to see if the menu looks normal? If it is normal, it's not a monitor problem, but if it looks the same then it is the monitor hardware.

Ok, so that narrows it down to cable (which I suspect based on your images) or graphics card. Are you using onboard graphics or an external card?

Is there a VGA port on your motherboard as well? If there is, try removing your graphics card and using that. If that solves the problem, it was your graphics card. If not, then it is likely your cable.

Ah, I forgot the port on the monitor, lol. If you like that other monitor better, you could try, say the DVI port if you were using VGA (or vice versa)

Glad it wasn't a costly process, great idea trying another monitor anyway.
