Hello ADDO657,

First, make sure that the cable between monitor and computer is securely fitted. If possible,try using a different cable. If this works, then the problem was a faulty VGA cable.

If that doesn't work, try to reseat the video card or use a different slot. It could be that the card has become loose or the slot is no longer working. Make sure to clean all the dust inside first; you can use a can of compressed air to do this. If you do not know how to reseat the card or open the cabinet, get someone in the know to do this for you. The video card will be the card to which you attach the monitor cable.

Lastly, try to download the latest driver for your card from the manufacturer's website and reinstall the new driver.

If all this still does not work, it could be a problem with either the card or the monitor. Get a competent local technician to check it for you. Hope this helps...

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

This happened to me once too. It is something with the monitor, which needs to be cleaned inside, that is all. Just take it to a mechanical store and they will fix it

My laptop went funny the picture statred to distort now iv restarted it i can see anything the laptop is on but the screen is black with lines on it


2 horizontal or vertical lines on ur screen or 2 lines in a cross are problems that can be quite easily repaired by a specialist.. in fact if th lines are very distinct a repair shop may b able to follow them directly to a broken connection thats causing a loss of info on th screen along th edge of th lcd.. often these connectors can b repaired rather than having to buy a new 1.. def not a biggie, but def needs sorting by experts.!! x.x.x Dyanne x.x.x

Lines going across picture on plasma screen


Try connecting another screen (any other screen, doesn't have to be plasma) or try connecting the screen with the problem to another machine. Either way you'll eliminate one piece of hardware. Either the lines will still be there on the screen, in which case the screen is faulty and needs repairing, or they won't be in which case the problem most likely lies in the display card.
