    Thats unfixable. Its called something like backlight bleeding or bleed through. And like the name implies it is due to the light from the backlight "bleeding" out around the edge of the screen.

    return it for warranty replacement. try out the new monitor if in doubt before you leave the store.

    And if you end up deciding to get a new monitor don't get the same model you had problems with before.
