well I may have spoke too soon about that monitor being fixed I woke up this morning and it went grey again. I switched out the power cord no luck but when I grabbed the back of the monitor and the bottom of the screen and shook it it started working again. So I have no idea maybe the vga cable but I am doubtful

ok so I replaced the vga cable and power cable and still no luck but heres a little video of me demonstrating the issue. If I apply pressure to the top segment of the screen and hold it it works fine but if I let go the picture freezes and slowly fades to white and grey
