How do I clean my monitor?
This will depend on what type of monitor you have. If you have the older CRT monitor then it will have a glass screen and be easy to clean. You can spray some glass cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe down the screen and follow it up with a dry cloth. LCD and LED monitors are more sensitive and are not as easy to clean. You never want to put too much pressure on an LCD\LED screen since it may cause damage. First try a soft cloth like a microfiber cloth and gently wipe the screen. If its just dusty then you can use something like a Swiffer duster that is good at picking up dust. There are also special purpose LCD\LED cleaning kits that do a good job of cleaning your screen without causing damage. Just be sure to never spray anything directly on your monitor.

My computer screen has started to wobble at the sides, how can I fix it or do I need a new monitor?

There are a couple of things you can try before going out and getting a new monitor. Make sure the connection at the back of the computer is secure. If you feel comfortable taking the case off of the computer you can reseat the video card as well. Make sure the computer is off and unplugged first.

Have you moved the monitor by any electrical devices or put any electrical devices by the monitor? Some electronics will cause your monitor to do strange things when they are too close.

One easy test is to borrow a monitor and see if it does it on that one. I'm thinking your monitor is most likely going out but you can try the above suggestions first.
