What model specifically?

Any more details?

It's difficult to help at all with that little information.

I can't seem to find much detail on that monitor - it seems to be an older model. Does it have multiple inputs (DVI/VGA), and if so, did you try using a different input?

Yes, but the cord I have only fits in the analog vga spot, I can't find any spares around here that'll fit the second plugin.

well my monitor is doing the exact same thing. but that is a 2,5 years old mirai. if you have this problem on a new one, you should make an RMA.
also, i can barely spot the waves when i turn the brightness up. try that.

I would try to borrow a VGA cable.

I had an issue sometime ago with one of my LCD monitors. The distortion was taken care of by replacing the VGA cable.
