It's quite unclear what "updating a calendar" exactly is, and how it possibly could have this effect. Can you tell more?

Anyway, the first diagnostic is to try this TV on another desktop/laptop and another (HDMI?) monitor/TV with this desktop to see if it's an issue of the TV or the Dell.
If it turns out, it's in the desktop, first try System Restore back to before you did what you did to cause it.

the desktop calendar is an app . I do have another PC that uses a TV as a monitor and I will switch TVs and see if the problem persist . thank you I needed another perspective . I'll return regardless of the results
