Question about ViewSonic VP171s 17" LCD Monitor
We have replaced two fuses in our monitor in the last two months.
Today, when we turned on the PC, our screen saver (which was a largely grey picture), is now displaying in lurid pinks, purples and blues, and the screen is flickering. On Windows programmes, our screen bars (title, scroll, etc)have become bright lime green (and the title bar has vertical lines of other colours, some flickering running across it), and when we go on the web, some images and text are unreadable as the backgrounds colours are flickering and too dark, and other images are flickering.
Is it dead?
SOURCE: A line of Dead Pixels.
You are right it is a stuck or dead pixel, usually if it is a colred line but not grey it is a stuck pixel at the beginning of the line you can try a utility designed to flash bright colors repetedly over time to see if this will "unstick" it. Also you could have a dry joint on your TCP which would require opening it up to diagnose.

you're video card is failing, try the secondary port if you have one, artifacting such as different colors, shapes and lines are VGA related, you need a new VGA card and for more info contact http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
