Question about Acer AL1716B 17" LCD Monitor
I have vertical lines on my monitor. Makes it difficult to read text and see pics clearly.
It does sound as if the graphics processor of the video card has died but I suggest downloading the lastest driver for that card on the off chance it is simply a software hiccough.
If, after installing an updated driver it is still there, you might try changing the resolution via the Control Panel/Display, to see if the anomalies change in dimensions but this won't cure anything, only confirm that the card is at fault.
