Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a dell dimension 8300 and the factory monitor has horizontal lines flickering all over, with intermittent fuzzy haze. Do I need to replace my graphics card to fix this problem? I already downloaded and reinstalled the driver software from dell.

Borrow another monitor / if the same download latest vid card drivers / install. (Check cable as well)

If it fixes it either get monitor repaired / replaced.

You have to check the ESR in tha caps in power supply with esr meter.
If you dont have one just replace all capacitors in the power section(there are severals of them)This is the simptom of low esr in the capacitors.
Return the monitor in factory settings.

Need to replace the video card on dell dimension 8300 computer. Monitor has vertical lines on it. Changed the monitor - same thing happens. If you hit the top of the tower, it will stop with the lines...


seems like you might need to replace the video card. If you have any spare compatible card that you can use i would test it with that. If not you can find one for about $50-$199 depending on specifications at most retail stores or online.

hope this helps.
