Try a larger hammer? :)


Seriously, I'd get a monitor, as Bruce suggested to narrow down card or monitor. If it's the monitor, I'd take it back (hopefully it's still under some type of warranty).

ok :) this is going to sound so so so stupid. its 0545 here and i woke up and went "hertz" change it, so from 60hz to 75hz and the lines have gone!


i woke up from sleep and dreaming to figure it out, i dont know why it suddenly all started acting funny, but panic over for now...


the mind boggles ;)

its the graphics card, just thought id update and close my query :)

only thing is its onboard graphics, so the fact that it's part of the pc so to speak is quiet worrying, so until i get a new pc its bad news, and i have no money :(


i plugged my TFT into my laptop and ran a extended desktop, and all colours and resouloutions were beautiful.


ill have to open the PC up and maybe its possible to add a new graphics card if the slot is free, (im sure im full up though)

is it worth upgrading to a new pc, 1.2ghz 512mb 200gb 32 graphics,

im just using it for photoshopping general multimedia and "Messing round"
