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problems are typically related to outdated device drivers, malfunctioning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."
