Re: is it my monitor or my video card

1.there might be a problem with your signal cable. if one of the pin in the signal cable is open. it might also happens
2.adjust signal cable.
3.Check VGA video card is working properly. unplug the VGA card and Re-plug to its slot. if your mother borad has inbuilt video card. this process cannot be performed
4.Even problem with operating system might also happen.. problem with Video Ram memory
5.if you want to check whether your monitor is ok. just get Cpu Box alone frm friends for a while for a testing.
6. if your monitor have problem then contact service centre.
