This could be one of two things:
It could be the monitor that is going bad. If it is, it would be best to replace it.

Second, It could be the Video board or the system memory. Which can be repaired.

If you have access to another monitor or a friend's system,try your computer on it. This will tell you whether it is the monitor or the computer.
Post the findings here, and we can continue to T/S it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Line across middle of screen and series of lines below that overlaying whats active on the monitor. It's a new 23 inch acer


Your screen is made up of layers in which gas is trapped. whenever any side of the screen gets cracked it may not be visible with naked eye. The gas gets released and you get a horizontal straight line blue or black. Initially it starts with a thin line and as the gas releases it keeps on getting broader. If your acer is on warranty try to replace it or else you will have to replace it out of your own pocket.

Horizontal lines on Screen


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Horizontal lines on my monitor


Lines on screens are usually caused by damage to the ribbons on the actual screen face itself (something only a few professional lcd repair shops can repair).
Sometimes caused by a bump, other times from over-wetting when cleaning, or dampness/moisture issues
The inverter-power board does Not control picture, It just controls the backlight bulbs and powering the video board.
Picture is powered from the video display board.

Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on
it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there.

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
