Monitor issues

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there

I'm getting some weird ass lines on solid colours on my monitor such as black.

Does this mean my monitor is poop or is there a way of fixing it?
I was planning on getting a new monitor in the near future.

Thanks

Is your monitor CRT or LCD/Plasma/LED? if it is a CRT it may just be weird power fluctuations or high frequency interference. If it is a flat panel of any type the monitor is likely shot. Lines and solid object usually are the result of a damaged ribbon cable that connects to the screen.

I'm not actually sure what it uses. Dell ST2410 24” that's the model.
Anyway what 24" would you recommend? Various price ranges, GBP if possible?

That's a negative.
Although I think it's the monitor it's happened in CS;S ever since I have had it.

Try changing the cable first. Always try that first. Then try another screen on your GPU, and you should know where the issue is after doing those.


Have any pics?
