Hi, I have a 22" Acer LCD screen with only VGA connection and have been having trouble when playing all the newer 3D games like Far Cry 2 and Assasins Creed. I get faint wavy lines that scroll vertically at crazy speeds, but only when I am looking at certain dark coloured textures. eg. when swimming or at dawn in far cry 2.
When I take a screen capture (ctrl + print screen) I see it stop momentarily.. I paste the image into MS paint and the exact same image shows NO wavy lines, so its only when in a 'Real Time' 3d application!
just to note, I changed the monitor cable and got slightly better results (alot less noticable while swimming in far cry2). It cant be a ground loop because the problem isnt there with a screen capture of the offending image.
Changed my graphics card from 8600gt to 9800gt and it got a bit worse!
Also, I dont have any exaust fan for removing the extra 9800gt heat, could this be the culprit?
here are my specs:
Steel mATX case
Asus M2n Mx SE motherboard AM2
Amd athlon 64 x2 4000+
2gb Corsair XMS2 RAM
480w PSU for system
250w PSU for video card (ThermalTake w0099)
XFX 9800GT 512mb (625mhz core no overclocking)
1 x IDE HDD 40gb (dont laugh)
1 x IDE DVD R/W
