Question about Computers & Internet
Horizontal lines, flickering monitors and other display
problems are typically related to outdated device drivers, malfunctioning
hardware and device-to-system incompatibilities.
Video adapters for gaming are among the most common afflicted with the horizontal line sickness.
Although most monitors are cured eventually, the task of diagnosing one requires time to assess. Follow a few steps to start the process and cross off the items on the list of "most likely possible causes" line by line.
The probability is good that you'll find the right remedy without any vertical line side effects.
1. Access "Control Panel" from the Start menu and then select "Appearance and Themes."
2. Choose "Display" and then go to the Settings tab.
3. Click "Troubleshoot" and follow the prompts to resolve the issue.
If the problem is still not resolved, proceed to Step 4.
4. Go back to the "Control Panel" and select "Performance and Maintenance" and then "System."
5. Go to the Hardware tab and click "Device Manager."
6. Click "Display Adapters" under the console tree and select your active monitor.
7. Go to the General tab of the malfunctioning hardware and select the "Driver" tab.
