IPS (Visual) Monitors - noisy?

I recently got a 24" Dell IPS monitor for my computer which looks great, but when I turn on my audio monitors, I can here a pretty loud electromagnetic hum being from the monitors. This especially concerns my for tracking - like when I'm tracking the guitar in front of the monitors, the picks on my guitar pick up that noise! This was a really expensive monitor and I don't even know if I can use it in my studio now!

Any thoughts? Has anyone else experienced this with IPS panels?

No one's ever experienced this?

Is the monitor connected directly to mains or going through a UPS?

Excellent question - thanks valis. They're hooked up to the mains. However my old (suposedly inferior) monitor didn't have this problem. I'll give that a try!
