I have a 19" Westinghouse WS lcd monitor and lately I've noticed a fuzzy snowing effect running horizontally through my screen. It's definately more noticable in darker areas of my screen that lighter ones. I can't tell if its a video card issue, power cable, or analog cable (I have a DVI cable coming in the mail as we speak...) problem...please help, it's driving me crazy!!!<img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" />

doesnt sound too good. I really have no idea, might be your card, drivers, or your screen. It never hurts to update your video card drivers though, try that.

Sounds like an updating issue. If I remember correctly, you can set the KHz (Horizontal) and Hz (Vertical) in the nVidia Control Panel.

Resolution or refresh<br />
Drivers<br />
cable<br />
bad card if not OCed or excessively OCed<br />
or bad monitor.<br />
Work you way through it.<br />
Adjust to default monitor settings<br />
Try different vid card drivers @ default vid card settings.<br />
Swap cable

It might be the LCD cable which is attached on the back of the LCD. So you'd have to open the whole thing.. not recommended unless you have ran out of options and know what you are doing (and have another one of them LCD cables of course) <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

Sadly, I dont have a DVI input on this monitor. And... My dad doesnt see the advantages of using a DVI cable anyways. Otherwise, I couldve been using my Dell Ultrasharp 18.1" Monitor.
