OK, First of, I don't know much about graphic cards, etc. But, heres my problem:

Well, I was on about an hour ago. Everything was fine. Then, I come back on. I log on to my Windows name, and the scren is like un-focused. It moves up and down about every 5 seconds. So, I shut it down. Then, the Dell screen was going like crazy! I told my dad, and he did something with the refresh rate. Anyways, it doesn't go up and down on the desktop, but it does for the DELL Screen and the Windows screen.... Any ideas to stop this?

Ask your dad if he touched anything important on the computer. Like once, my dad screwed our old compuer up so badly, we had to Reinstall windows.

Nope. Because, we all went to church. But when we got home, and I went to log in to my Windows account, it started messing up. He would know if he messed it up, though, because he knows more about this computer technical stuff than me. ;)

Restart the computer, or shut it off, then start it again.

Well, the Dell and Windows screens are only start-up screens, yes? If so, then why bother with it? Sounds to me like you might need a new monitor though. :p

LCDs still aren't good for gaming though. The response times are not so good still.

Startup screens are usually in DOS which has the graphic visual quality of Pong. :p

If you can access Windows and the desktop without any graphic problems, it's probably just a minor problem.
