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?

Thanks

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!
