Possible solution

This looks like a resolution problem. I.e the PC Display resolution is higher than what the monitor can manage. Reboot the PC and press F8 when prompted. Select "Safe mode with VGA". This will put the display at minimum resolution. You then have to go into Display settings and increase the resolution gradually. If this does not work, check all the cables and check the video card.

The screen refresh rate may be set too high in the monitor settings. Try starting in safe mode, F8, and lower the setting and click on "Hide modes this monitor can't support". Hope this helps.
