Hi, i need help , yesterday my montior started having red and gren lines flashing every 2 seconds or so all over my desktop lcd monitor..I dont know what is causing this and would like to fix it..I have vista ultimate, graphics card is a nvidia GeForce 7600 GS with heatsink, monitor is HP vs17e..My resolution is set to 1280 by 1024 , which is what i always have it set to..75hz is the refresh rate...Is there something wrong with my monitor, video card or my motherboard ? please help ..
sounds like the video card u need to borrow another 1 from a friend to test it on your pc if its good then u know 4 sure its the card. If you have on board graphics the take the card out and see if it does the same
Changing the resolution all of a sudden did not make a diiference anymore, it still happens in the 800 x 600, I went and plugged in another monitor which works perfectly on my other pc and when i plugged it in , the lines are still appearing on the screen...I also received a message on the bottom right corner that said "display driver has stopped working and has been fully recovered "
well like i said its the graphic card trust me i just had the same thing happen to me
and 4 off my friends this is getting out of hand i wonder if its a bad driver screwing up the nvidia cards. immmmmmmmm
ps do u play sacred 2
pps when u boot your pc do u get grabled letters as the bios boots up?
I dont play sacred 2, as im not much of a gamer..Will go ahead and get new video card..i have gigabyte geforce 7 ..which of these is recommended for me to upgrade to between geforce 8, 9, 100, or 200 series and what name brand is recommended ? Not looking to spend more than 100 dolars on it..Should i get with heatsink or fan, if with fan im looking for one that has a quiet fan but have no idea on which to get...My computer is a hp m7790y..here are my specs - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00...
