Very annoying 'lines' on my screen. Tried everything. please help :(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently, ive been having this annoying problem with my pc (3 months old. barely did any overclocking).
This is the problem im talking about:

You can only see if when you watch it in HD.
You see these annoying lines at the screen?
It only occurs when im playing a game.

All the things i have tried so far:

- Remove the videocard, and use the onboard.. Same problem. BUT reduced. (Could be because of the lower graphic settings/framerate?)
- Change screen + VGA cable...Still nothing.
- Reset the Bios (CMOS Reset) same problem
- Reinstalled drivers
- Install windows 8 instead over windows 7

Nothing worked
BUT

here comes the mindf**k.. When im using HDMI (PC -> TV), the lines are gone..and everything is perfect

Seriously this is starting to get frustrating now.

Please help me mad.gif

Specs:

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4
CPU: i5-3570k (stock speeds)
RAM: 8GB G.Skill RAM
Videocard: EVGA Geforce GTX570
HDD: WD 500GB
SSD: Samsung 830 128gb

EDIT: Just enabled the ''Screen duplication'' feature when setting up multiple displays..Im using my PC Screen (VGA), and my TV (1080p HD). Running skyrim, and the TV is not showing any weird lines at all. While my TV monitor does..Tried my other monitor, same problem.

Could it be that the videocards DVI Ports are broken? (Im using a DVI to VGA converter)

Ít sounds like the converter to me, since it's the only thing in the equation you haven't tried out. Is it possible for you to try with a direct DVI connection? As in no DVI-VGA converter.
