Akoya medion split screen

Model Medion Akoya model MIM2300. The split screen problem occurs already at startup when no system is loaded yet, In safe mode the screen is sometimes OK. Is this a motherboard problem? Or a loose contact? Please advice.

    Tilting the screen does not show any difference. I tried to connect another screen to the PC without succes. It accepts only a screen when i use a special connector, I think that it connects to an addiotional video card. But I can't get it to work, probably because a driver is needed,. And Windows crashes now before anything can be done. The crash comments says something about a screen driver. Could the video card be defective or can it be another problem on the board?

    The exact crash comment is: "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed." The PC can now be started up only in safe mode, but with a split screen only.. In regular Windows mode it always crashes and then it restarts. If I disable the NVIDEA GeForce 8600M GS video card, Windows can be start ed (with a split screen, hardly readable) but no crash happens. I check the video cable, it is not damaged, and can be freely moved somewhat. Seems to be OK. I now think that the video card is defective. Any advice? Can such a card be replaced at a reasonable cost and effort?

    Thanks for your efforts to assist me. Unfortunetly I am a citizen of The Netherlands, and ebay here asks abaout Euro 100 for it, which is about $130. The machne is to old for it certainly if I take the risk for failure and/or reoccurance in account. I give up, but thanks anyway. i

Check the screen cable first. as it does not always happen. tilt the screen front and back to see it at some angles the split stop then you can confidently say it's the cable
