Invisible waves in the image of my monitor

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi

recently I bought a GTX 1070 AORUS and I noticed that in the image there are waves in the image when I play.
I doubt it's the GPU so I think more about the image input or the monitor ..
is a 19 "AOC 913Fw connected by VGA to the DVI of the GPU

previously I had an XFX 7970 that also had the same thing but also an electric sound ...

Does this happen to someone? Will I have to change the monitor or the image input / output? I currently use a DVI to VGA converter.

How long have you had that monitor? I saw articles and posts about this monitor with a Google search that date way back to 2008. What I'm trying to say is, if your monitor is 9 years old, then you'd better replace it now before it's too late. LCD monitors shouldn't last more than about 7 years. So, I think it's possible that the problem you're experiencing could be a sign that the monitor is dying.

 

However, since that can be a hassle and expensive, I recommend replacing the cable or the adapter - or both, and then go from there.

It's a computer!

yes, I'm soon to change it ... I read on another side, it may be the cable to the monitor that is saturated with so much data and that the monitor has a lower refresh rate can cause this ... explains that it can be solved activating v-sync

I wanted to rule out that it was the gpu

I think the fact that you had this problem with the 7970 rules the GPU out.

 

Anyway, perhaps this problem is unique to this monitor, but I have never seen this and I have used a VGA cable to a VGA to DVI adapter before. I did that with a 22" Samsung 2253BW. It's a 9-year old LCD monitor. When I used the adapter, I was able to get the same perfect signal that I had with a DVI cable. The reason I had to use a VGA cable was, I had to order a new DVI cable because the one I had died on me, so I needed to use my VGA cable while I waited for the new DVI cable to arrive. This was just about 2 years ago, so yeah, cables can go bad.

 

Regardless, your monitor is 9 years old, so I strongly urge you to replace it as soon as you are able to. You don't want to wake up to a dead monitor and then be forced to buy a cheap one.

I repeat, I doubt it's the gpu, since it's new. I have not done OC or anything weird ... I just checked and the gpu does not make any strange noise ... the most likely thing is that it is the problem of the cables or the monitor that will soon change it .. as soon as I can try the gpu on a friend's PC to discard it completely.

I said you ruled out the GPU since it also happened with the 7970. Happening with 2 different video cards rules the GPU out. I was not saying it's the GPU, and I am not saying it's the GPU. I am saying the GPU is completely ruled out - because it's happening with both video cards.

 

So as I have been trying to say, replace the cable and the adapter first. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you would be able to conclude that it's the monitor. Being 9 years old, I wouldn't be surprised if it's dying. If you replace the cable or the adapter (or both) and you find that the problem was with the old cable or the old adapter or both, then you would have a perfect opportunity to begin your quest to find a nice new monitor since your old one is still working. Replace it while it's working. Don't wait until it dies. It's 9 years old. LCD monitors usually only last roughly 7 years.

maybe the cable itself (VGA) is causing problems, the converter is new active analog VGA to DVI-D ... so I can hardly change it ... any brand that you recommend and that is affordable? I seek to play maximum in a resolution of 1440p or 1080p all hight or ultra 144hz with gsync

The words/terms "affordable" and "G-SYNC" don't really go together very well. G-SYNC monitors are expensive. In my opinion, they're worth the extra cost if you can afford it.
