Without details on the hardware, this is just a guess, but you might try an updated video driver

Fix my computer from black screen for free


Here is the solution for your answer.Please follow the below steps to fix your problem.

1. Check for loose electrical and VGA cables. Remove the electric cord from the back of the monitor, then put it back in place. Remove the VGA cable from the computer and monitor and put it back in place. Make sure the connection is tight. If you're using a cable extender, remove it.

2. Plug the monitor's electric cord into a different outlet. If you're using a UPS or surge protector, plug it directly into a wall outlet.

3. Attach the monitor to a different computer. If the monitor still doesn't work, replace the monitor's cable. Make sure the cable is less than 5 feet long. If it still doesn't work, the monitor will need to be replaced or repaired. If it works with no problem on the other computer, troubleshoot your video card.

4. Unplug your computer from the monitor and power outlet. Remove the cover. Pull the video card out of the slot on the system board. Push it back into place. Be sure the connection is secure.

5. Put the CD that came with your video card into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Follow the directions to reinstall the video card drivers. Download a new version of the drivers from the manufacturer's website if necessary.

6. Right-click a blank area of your Desktop. Choose "Properties" from the display menu. Click the "Settings" tab. Try different screen resolutions to resolve the problem.

7. Determine whether the problem is caused by electrical interference. Electrical interference will make the monitor appear jumpy or wavy. Move any speakers, radios, fans or other items that can cause electrical interference away from the monitor.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Gateway VX 920 Diamatron monitor has wavy lines at bottom


Since this is a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) It is no longer cost effective to repair them. Your Tube Driver circuit (internal non-serviceable parts) is starting to fail.

When i scroll up and down the page is wavey


If for wavy you mean that it is very jumpy as you scroll, not smooth, then it is a classic sign of the incorrect driver for your video card.

Is this a MS-7184 problem? My son's computer has a wavy screen, so I replaced the CRT monitor with a new flat screen. Still wavy. Next, I replaced the onboard video card with a PCI card and nothing shows...


you need to install drivers with the new video card but first you must uninstall the old one-definately a driver issue(assuming all cables are good,etc)
