    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It sounds to me that you have somekind of short between your computer and your display.

    I would suggest that you take it back if it`s still under warranty otherwise it will need to be repaired by someone who is qualified to do so.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
