Comment by mcbonley, posted on Feb 28, 2008 Nope. There's a problem on your videocard display. Comment by micromaster, posted on Feb 28, 2008 You've upgraded the monitor or the video card, and it's incompatible with the rest of your system. sorry i should have said, my system is a high spec quad SLI gaming system running windows xp. it has been happy with no probs for about a year. while my pc was being serviced i plugged the lcd monitor into my old pc tempory just to get my email etc thats when i first got this barcode problem. i figured what you told me above. and the problem was the old system. but when i plugged the monitor back into the gaming system (which never had vthis problem) the barcode was still there. i havent changed canhy hardware or drivers.

Your screen resolution is not right. As you cant see to do anything you can boot into safe mode or vga mode and change your screen resolution to suit the monitor. I am assuming that the barcode bit is the windows but very scrunched up. If this display is additional and on top of a normal windows display you have a hardware problem

Unplug the monitor video cable from the computer. Power on the monitor and see if you get the same results. If so then your monitor is defective.

I have this problem about my monitor, every time i open my computer a horizontal lines appear on my screen, my monitor is BenQ a flat screen ... can anyone tell me what happen and how to fix it ...thanks...


Could be multiple different issues here.

1) Your video card is getting old or if you recently replaced it may not work with your current PC.

2) Degauss your monitor using the settings directly on the monitor.

3) Download the latest drivers for your video card and mess around with the display resolutions as the card may not support your current resolution.

4) Your monitor itself may be the culprit and you need to send it in for repair.

If your still having issues, provide me a few more details about the problem and I may be able to further assist you.

By the way, is it an LCD screen? I guess so. LCDs have small IC's either on the lower portion or in the left side of the screen. When these become loose, the tendency is to have vertical or horizontal lines on the screen. Hot air blower might solve the problem. But most will not. Better claim warranty or replace the unit.

Monitor suddenly goes black with alternating horizonal lines, some thin some wide. Shut off for a while and now the picture is very washed out.


there are 2 parts involved in horizontal lines. videocard and LCD. if this is a desktop just diconnect the data cable from computer and check if the LCD self test will appear also check if you still see the lines, if lines are not visible in the self test definitely its your videocard taht you need to replace.

Monitor screen with pink line


While I've never seen the stripe be pink, it's not impossible for it to appear that color. Your monitor is bad, and isn't easily or cheaply fixed.

This is George I have a 19" viewsonic crt color monitor It has a horizontal line . i can't find out whats causing it . Could it be the flyback?


Try adjusting settings on the monitor. There should be a menu button on the monitor. If that doesn't help try your monitor on a different computer. If the line is still there your monitor is bad. If the line is not there then you may have a problem with the Graphics Card. You could also try a different monitor with your computer. If the line is there then it probably a bad Graphics Card. I have had this same situation and it has usually been a bad monitor.

No image but only two bright white horizontal lines in the middle


Try checking the monitor and monitor cord to make sure they are working properly. Try it on another computer and see if the lines are still there. If they are, then you will need a new monitor and if they are not, then you may need a new monitor port for your computer. You will need that checked by a professional to be sure. If you can, open the computer and check the connections from the monitor port to the motherboard and make sure they are ok.


To contact me, just re-post and I will try to answer any questions or comments immediatley.
