Dotted horizontal lines all over the screen

Had a similar issue. Went into my desktop video settings. On the advanced tab, Turned down "Hardware acceleration" 1 notch. Screen has been clear and clean since. I assume my video card is feeling its age.

You could try removing the display device in device manager then rebooting. At boot up windows will reinstall the drivers.
Check for new display drivers at Dell's support site.

Acer s211 HL monitor, blibks like crazy and cant see video on full screen display, but works in small window format. Can not seem to download drivers from acer? Is it my drivers?


First check the resolution and refresh rate for your video graphics adapter. LCDs are apt to blink when not at 60 Hz. (Recently I had another client with that issue.) For Windows 7, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Click on Advanced Settings and the Monitor tab. (Other versions of Windows will have this in a similar area or Control Panel > System > Display in some combination. Mac and Unix have this setting somewhere as well.) Also make sure that you are set for the native resolution or one supported by both the monitor and the graphics adapter.

Next check the temperature of the system. Improve the cooling of the system if the graphics card is overheating.

I hope this helps.

My graphics are not working properly and i keep gtting black squares and it keeps getting lines on the screen how do i fix it


Hello my friend this is looks like a graphic cards problem but we are going to check few things before change it.First you need to do is to turn off hardware acceleration-
  1. Click on Start > Control Panel.
  2. In the classic view, double click on the Display icon.
  3. Select the Settings tab and click on the Advanced button. The Advanced Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click on the Troubleshoot tab.
  5. You can disable the hardware acceleration completely by dragging the slider to the extreme left of the scale. You can also choose to turn down the hardware acceleration by selecting an intermediate value.
If the issue is resolved with hardware acceleration turned off, the source of the problem could be old video drivers for your video adapter that you had.So we are going to the next step.
Uninstall all the graphic drivers and install the latest one,if you still have problem then you have to change your graphic card

All of the sudden alot of red dotted verticle lines appeared on my screen and are on there constantly. Any idea what caused this or how to remove them?


Most likely if the line appear in all screens you have a hardware issue. Reseat the monitor connection, see if anything changes. If not, try monitor on another system or another monitor on this system, see if the problem follows the monitor or the system.

If the issue stays with the system, then you will likely need a new video card. If you have Intel Integrated video, try different RAM. If RAM makes no difference, a motherboard or an expansion video card will be needed to resolve.

Syncmaster 245B Monitor Shivering horizontal lines


Which type of video connector are you using? VGA or DVI?

If you are using VGA, the horizontal line could be due to interference, like from an electric motor (fan) near the video cable.

Other thing to try is to change the refresh rate. In Windows XP: Control panel --> Display Properties --> Settings tab --> Advanced button --> Monitor tab --> Screen refresh rate. The default ot 60Hz for LCD monitors. Bump it up to 75Hz. That could give a clue to the problem or maybe even fix it.
