Hey, got myself a problem here.

Started my PC up today and one half of my screen is dark, and the other end is light, exactly like a grayscale, not sure why this has happened but its real annoying, also when i try to configre the monitors contrast/brightness the whole monitor decides to conq out for the next 20-30 mins. i tried fiddling around with my graphic cards settings but nothing. not sure if this is a sign that my monitor is about to go, or just some random stuff happening, would be awesome if i could get some feedback, thanks.

The the monitor on another PC or try another Monitor on your PC to determine where the problem lies.

If you're using a DVI connection you could try a VGA connection. You could also try a different cable. That would eliminate all other possibilities.
If the monitor is the problem it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Is it still under warranty?
