With out seeing the screen and the connections to the video card I can assume that
it is the cable that is loose but it may also be the video card itself and or the LCD
monitor.
1. check the video cable from the monitor to the video card port
2. check the cabinet (PC) for accumulated dust around the mother board or the video
card and the CPU ( central processing unit). Dust is a heat collector and may render the
mother board and component to act erratic or fail all together. check all connectors
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Fuzzy screen with lines on desktop computer


Dear Debbie,
Greetings from New Zealand! Try a different monitor & see if fault still exists...If not the monitor, then could be fault in box...either hardware or software....(???maybe interference from other devices in home/nearby???) Your may need to install/replace video card - if you have one? (I THINK that if it is a fault in the all-in-one motherboard type of video that a separate "PCI" video card MAY solve it?) I hope that these suggestions help?! 'b'ye - Bruce.

MY MONITOR SCREEN IS FUZZY. UNSURE THE CAUSE OF THIS, PLEASE HELP; COMPAQ MV730I MONITOR MAY BE JUST OLD ALREADY AND I NEED TO REPLACE IT.


Difficult to say as there are several possibilities. First would be to narrow them down. You may have already tried this, but wipe all dust off of the screen to see if that helps.(Do Not spray liquids on you monitor, if a cleaning agent is necessary, use a damp wipe to remove debris. If a single drop gets past the monitor's bezel in the wrong place, it will cook the monitor or worse, cook you.) If that didn't work, then, if possible, run the monitor on another computer. If that clears things up, I would suspect either a driver or hardware issue with the computer. If the screen is still fuzzy on another computer, then it is definitely the monitor. As CRT's age, many things happen. One is that the phosphor wears out from being shot at by the electron gun and start to go dim and then fuzzy as the intensity is increased by the user to make things brighter. Another thing that ages is the high voltage transformer. As the transformer weakens, it is no longer able to shoot a sharp beam of energy and begins to splatter a bit of energy on the surrounding pixels which would make the screen appear fuzzy. If the CRT has controls for adjusting intensity, contrast, saturation (those are sometimes hidden behind a small panel) tweak them one at a time remembering where the original setting was to see if that clears things any. ***DISCLAIMER*** (Note: Some monitors have the controls inside. If you are not experienced with adjusting high voltage devices DO NOT DO IT!!! A monitor is not worth your life, and if you disrespect high voltage even by accident, the potential is there to kill you!) Above all things, BE SAFE, and then choose what is best for you to do. Best of luck.

Fuzzy screen on Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor


With the pixels acting up and the monitor having the same problem on any computer that its connected to. The screen itself is bad and since there are no replacement screens for that monitor, you would have to buy a new monitor or get it replaced if its under warranty.

At times my Dell computer monitor will turn a dark green


This issue 99 times out of 100 is always caused by a short inside the monitor cable. The cables can be tight but that isn't the issue. Grasp the monitor cable at the DB-15 and slide it over your thumb at a 90degree angle. Also shake it it as you move along to find the bad spot. Alternatively if you have another monitor try swapping the two. If not, maybe you can work with a friend to see if the problem follows the monitor or the video card.

A 20" monitor gets a black screen when turned on


sounds like you might have a back lighting issue? take a flash light and shine it on the monitor when it is black and look to see if the image is there but not lit up, if this is the case then you might need to change the light balist in the monitor of even the back lights themselfs..
if the picture is fuzzy for a long period of time then you have a controler card issue there is a controler card in the monitor that changes the image coming in from HDMI, VGA, DVI into the binary that the vertical and horizontal drivers use to show you the image onthe screen... hope this info helps. good luck
