LCDs can have the horizontal lines going up just like CRTs... but that is a settings problem and not that they are dead... I think LCDs fade with time

but if the symptoms are exactly like Boris described then he probably knows what he is talking about...

hey lightningfr... check out the Dell 20" 1680 x 1050... they are an amazing deal.. EDIT WHOA!!! never mind they went UP in price!!!

EDIT #@: never mind... they didn't go up, they seem to be discontinued... the only 20" is not an "ultra sharp" version... so you need to look at the 22" for that rez (I have two) but thay are a bit more cashola at $300)... look for a good 20" 1680 x 1050 20"... they are a great price point... Samsung might be the way to go

I would set the refresh rate by creating a profile in your Nvidia Control Panel, and make sure you set it to whatever your monitor's native refresh is...

also, you only want to set your monitor to whatever it's native resolution is.. otherwise you will be creating all sorts of problems giving you softness and "fake view" among other things...

if they are still there get Driver Cleaner and un-install your driver, then run the cleaner and download the latest driver and install it... then do the same steps above...

if that doesn't help it then you want to RMA or buy a new one...

unless.... you might have bad power... try plugging the monitor into a different socket... though that's a long shot

What do you mean by set the refresh rate by creating a profile in your Nvidia Control Panel? I run my desktop @ 1280x1024 @ 60hz, and yes the lines are scrolling diagonally. They're translucent though.....it's not like theyre black lines scrolling across my screen. I can see them when my comp background is black or when the website i'm viewing is dark. It's almost like screen tearing except it happens on mostly all refresh rates and v-sync doesnt fix it

diagonal lines is something I've never seen before...

I used the Nvidia Control Panel instead of only the properties cause it has a ton more settings... you can create profiles which help if you switch LCD's back and forth... the video card feeds your monitors so you can trust that little program for sure...

I'd say it isn't a bad time to upgrade to a slim wide-screen LCD with higher rez anyway...

I mean, I am sorry but that's all I got to offer... it might be dead... I'll keep thinking about it though... real curious about this, never seen diagonal lines

anywho... chances are it is dead so start shopping just in case nobody comes up with a solution...

Alright well I just want to double check if I have everything setup right inside my comp. When I first installed my video card, I had nothing plugged into this spot

http://img504.imageshack.us/my.php?i...nnecterue4.jpg
http://img512.imageshack.us/my.php?i...necter2bt8.jpg

My previous video card (ATI Radeon 9700 Pro) required a smaller sized plug for that same spot, so I had to find a new plug to fit my nvidia card. Keep in mind that im not exactly sure what that is, or whats supposed to connect there, so I just found a random plug that was bundled with other wires by a tie that fit into that spot. Is there a certain wire thats supposed to go there? I havent opened up my comp in a while, so im not exaclty sure where that wire comes from, but could that be causing the lines on my screen? I noticed when I first plugged in my card without that cord plugged in, my monitor wouldnt turn on. Maybe it's the wrong cord and its causing these weird lines? The installation guide that came with my card didnt mention anything about plugging anything into that spot.

well that is the power supply to the card... without it you basicaly haven't plugged in your video card... though it might be trying to work off of power comming from the expansion slot... ? anywho... you have to get a cable in there but make sure it comes straight from your PSU so it gets clean power... and make sure you don't plug a "fan only" cable from your PSU if you have those... it needs to be a 12V rail... hey that might have been it.. you might have a "fan only cable" plugged in there which means it is not getting the voltage/amperage (what not) that it needs and it is still trying to work...

this seems to be good news (as in there is most likely nothing wrong with your setup other than the way you had it hooked it up!)


BTW: fill in your "system" in your profile so we see what components you have... which can help us look into them and give us a better idea of what might be going wrong... (ie: I would have looked at the available cables from your PSU if I knew what PSU you had)

I opened up my comp, the 12V connecter that I have connected to my card says p4 on it, and theres another loose one that says p5 on it. Does this make a difference? I took some pics, but the qualitys not very good so it might be hard to tell whats going on.

hahahaha idk if that helps at all :/


uhhhh im looking at specs for my comp and it says for expansion slots I have

AGP x4 x 1
PCI x 3
My video card was automatically and still is set to 8x, so could that cause them? If I set the card to 4x am I going to notice a huge decrease in performance? If I am then I can just live with these weird lines, they're just annoying.....but if my frames per second in my games will decrease then forget it.....

I don't think you have a problem there, my power supply molex connectors are labeled the same way. Hey just to make sure, take a screenshot and see if the lines appear in the screenshot. If they don't, it's 100% the monitor that is failing.

You're not going to be able to see them. I cant really begin to describe what they look like. They're translucent and can only rly be seen when the background of something is dark. They're wavy lines. You would really have to look at my screen to be able to see them.

I'd say at this point you should go to an Office Depot (14 days no questions asked 100% money back guarantee) and pick up a nice LCD... plug it in and see if the lines dissapear... if so then you know that you need to look for a good LCD you can actually keep (Office Depot prices suck)...

look for a wide screen... good contrast ratio... as many pixels as you can afford... Samsung and Dell are good places to start...
