Distorted video on monitor, wut could it be?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have noticed that if I look closely at my monitor I'm not getting a very good reception. It's like there is minor snow on top of my desktop. I had a similar issue wiht my last GPU that I just replaced last week. With that card, I was getting more lines than snow, but now I'm getting like low level snow. It's not actualy static like if you were to turn on a TV that was not hooked up to cable, but it's like you can notice the video not coming in clearly and it's a little staticy. I'm beginning to think it's not the cards but something else. The monitor is brand new and I have it hooked up to a KVM switch and when I KVM over to my other computer I get similar distortion. My Monitor, GPU and KVM switch (nice $150 4 port miniview) are all less than a month old. Any idea what would be the leading cause for this?

Check to make sure the cable is tight, if you have another cable try it. Otherwise kinda sounds like a faulty monitor if you already switched GPUs.

Also.. if you have DVI on your monitor, use it... very important as it is much better than VGA.

I don't have any DVI cables but I will try a different VGA cable. I always put them in tight so I know that's not the issue.

Not sure why I didn't mention this, make sure you are running your monitor at the highest resolution and at 60hz. If its not in its native resolution this can happen.

Also, BUY A DVI CABLE!, they are $3 at amazon. Its a sin to not use DVI when you have a GPU and a monitor that supports it.

I can't use DVI cuz I use 3 of the 4 ports on my KVM and it only supports VGA.
