I'm assuming "it" is the monitor rather than the video card, and that you are using some flavor of windows as your operating system.

1. Digital vs Analog mode is determined by the cable input plug on the monitor that use. Your cable from the computer to the monitor must be a DVI cable, and must connected to the DVI plug on your monitor. It must also be getting a digital signal from the video card, so must be connected to the DVI output plug on the card. You can use an adapter to convert from DVI video card output plug to an analog cable, but not the reverse. For a digital monitor, you must have a DVI cable. DVI connectors come in different flavors, so be sure to read specs for the video card and the monitor to choose the correct one.

2. As already suggested, it also sounds like you may not have installed the driver and video control software that came with the card. Windows will attempt to install a new video card. If you don't stop it, you can get what you see. So boot the computer in safe mode which should get you some kind of display, then install the software from the CD that came with the board. reboot, Once you are running, check for software updates on the support web site.

Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours


Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.

Card works in vga mode before installing 9-3_1_legacy_xp32-64_dd_ccc.exe After installing, video fails; displays only distorted flickering lines.


Restart your computer.
Tap on "Delete" until the BIOS comes up.
Look for an option for "VGA mode", as I wouldn't know what your BIOS is, you'll need to look carefully.
When you find it, shut it off, save your options then restart computer.
Comment if this didn't work, I can help you further.

Vertical line in imac 17" core 2 duo intel 2006 model


Attach an external monitor (you may need to buy an adapter to try this) and turn on Display Mirroring in the Display preferences.
If the same symptom shows on the external monitor, then you've got a video card problem. If not, I'd say you're screen has some kind of damage of failure.
Sorry, but either one is likely going to require a trip to the Apple Hospital.
At least with the display problem, you could use the external monitor until repaired.

Inspiron 1150 lines on screeN problem.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if it also has the vertical lines. If the external monitor looks fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is bad. If the monitor has the vertical lines displayed on it, then your graphics card or motherboard is bad.
