    I can hardly see my screen. There are lines going through it everywhere. I have tried my old monitor, and it looks the same. Whenever I move my mouse, or look at a picture, or watch a video,something from the mouse, or image, gets left behind.

    Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, tehy were taking one my cell phone. But those lines are real going from top to bottom. One is a picture ofof just the desktop, the other is with windows media player open.

    Sorry for any typs too, i can't see what im typing :o

    thanks again

    That looks really nasty. Try upgrading your video card drivers... however, I don't think that will help. It's worth the attempt though. Check your refresh rate on your monitor? Take out and put back in the video card to see what happens. Are there any magnets near the monitor? Or anything you have near your monitor that may attract metal or attract metal when it is turned on? Check for broken pins on/in the connectors? Dunno really, it seems like it could be a possibility of many problems. :dunno:
