Re: Distorted white lines running across screen

Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on
it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there.
if not they are likely a cable or video card.
if they are still there have a tech evaluate the monitor.

Have you tried updating DirectX?

You can also try scanning your computer with RadarSync (for free) to see which drivers are outdated. You can then install the updates by searching for them using Google. But, if you want to let RadarSync update them automatically then you can buy the license.

White horizental lines across the LCD Monitor.

This is a high voltage horizontal output problem. Could just be a loose connection or an intermitant component failure. If you can get into it, check for any loose connections. Sometimes this can also be caused by a large accumulation of dust. Make sure you unplug it before opening it up.

My Gateway LCD Monitor was fine last night this morning to my surprise the screen was full of blue and white horizontal lines. I tried restarting the computer and then I couldn't even get it to turn on....

the montor wont turn on? or the pc?
the lines mean you may need to have the bulb changed. The bulb should last up to four years but sometimes you get a dud. It also depends on whether you bought the TV new or not. If that's the case, you don't know how long that TV ran each day or for how many days it was on display.

Shadow Lines Across Screen on Dell P1130 CRT Monitor

What sort of shadow lines? I assume you haven't just noticed the two horizontal lines 1/3rd up the screen from the bottom and 1/3rd down from the top from the internal stabilizing wires that all Trinitron CRTs have?

Horizontal lines on Screen

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Heavy white lines accross the screen

Replace it, it is going bad. I could tell you what would cause this such as bad driver IC etc. but bottom line is its five years old, you got your moneys worth out of it so bite the bullet and get a new one.

Stripes on my Samsung Monitor

The contrast may be to high.
Adjust the brightness and contrast to make it go away but still readable.
if that does not help the FL (backlight) is going and the unit will need to be replaced.

Monitor goes black with a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen

Check to see that the monitor cable is correctly installed. Also, make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers installed for your graphics adaptor card(both ATI and Nvidia carry catch-all driver programs to keep you up to date.) Tighten the cable screws of course, to make sure the monitor cable isnt just wiggling in its seating.
