    Shut it off and let it cool down and see if that helps.

    i got the same monitor and i'm having the same exact problem, that's how i got here, did a google and got this link, i can't believe this, the monitor was working perfectly the night before and then the next morning i find that when i move an icon around the desktop it becomes narrow or wider in certain areas of the monitor.

    Have the same problem have talked to service department of Circuit City. We went thru some some basic setting changes then the tech on the phone told me that they will be replacing the monitor. The monitor was going to be 2 years old in september. What I recomend is that you check with the company that you purchased the monitor thru. And see if they still cover the monitor.
