I would try it on another PC first, also check the VGA cable connectors at both ends. It can be that the filter caps in the power supply are failing inside the monitor.
If you decide to open up the monitor, please look through my albums so you will have some idead what to look for inside.

Shadows on monitior


This sometimes occurs when the machine gets too hot. If your graphics card is too hot, its performance will suffer. Check the fan speeds/ temperatures and see if that helps.

After 15 minutes horizantal black lines appear on moniter


Welcome to Fixya.

Few of the top reasons for causing these "lines" running across the screen are :
  1. Corrupted video driver
  2. Changes in hardware configuration (display)
  3. Monitor issue (hardware)
In order to determine if it's hardware/software issue, all you need to do is to boot to BIOS and check if the problem replicates. Depending on system, you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping "F2" or "DEL" key repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer until you see a different screen.

If the problem is present while in BIOS, then definitely the monitor needs to be repaired by an authorized repair center. Otherwise, video driver update or Operating system re-install can resolve this problem.

My Dell monitor developed a thin, dark line horizontally across the screen. Within three months, a second line appeared. I can view the screen, but must look above or below the lines at times. Any idea...


this occurs very commonly in all LCD monitors... this is because each and every cells in the LCD monitor are energized by the vertical and horizontal electric fields placed around the frame of the monitor... if a particular field does not gives the power to the associated cells to it, then the entire line of cells will not operate and together they looks like a single line...This is what happened in your case...

I have 7 different hortizontal lines appearing


Try changing the VGA cable between the computer and monitor.
If that does not fix it, try a different monitor.
When you say "different operating systems" are they on the same physical computer/graphics card? If so, and the cable/monitor swap suggested above does not change any thing, then it is probably the Graphics card, or possibly something in the system (bad power supply?) that is injecting noise on the bus to the graphics card.

If none of the above. Bad Monitor.

Problem with shadows showing on monitor


LCD Monitor Shadow Effect
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this is very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
Solution: Keep the two cables - (power cable and monitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.
