It could be two things.

1. The graphics card is failing.

2. The monitor is exhibiting a defect.

If you have graphics card plugged into your computer, try disconnecting the card and hook your monitor into the built in video port and see if the issue goes away. If it does, then the video card may be failing. If you dont have a seperate video card, then the monitor might be having issues itself. Of course Onboard video can display this behavior too although I have not personally seen it.

I have a vertigo black line on the right side of my monitor/ screen. It fades in and out with rainblow lines and then turns solid black. The width is about 2 inches wide.


HiIt sounds like a display failure.Best way to verify is to try connecting an external display. If that dispaly is good then your internal display needs to be replaced - not cheap I'm afraid.

Horizonal lines


Unfortunately you can't.

This is what happens when you blow pixels on your monitor.

If it is still in warranty this will be covered.

If you are outside of your warranty then you will need a new monitor

Veiwsonic VA2026w. Yellow tint down R/h of display.


Which OS are you running?
Try this, after staring your PC press CNTRL-ALT-Delete and go to the processe TAB. Check if you see EHTRAY.EXE running.If so kill it and see if the yellow line disappears. ehtray.exe is part Mediaplayer and runs on startup, sometimes causing strange things.

You can remove it from the registry safely but if youé not familiar with the registry don't do it because 1 error might mess up your PC.

Monitor


Monitor sizes are measured on the diagonal from corner to corner.

A 17" LCD may have a screen width of 12 inches measured from side to side.

If you are measuring a old style CRT monitor (Cathode Ray tube) the visible screen area will be about an inch less as there is about 1/2 inch of plastic frame holding the CRT in the chassis. The manufacturer can advertise the actual size of the screen regardless of how much is actually visible to display information.

If you are talking about software not utilizing all the available screen area to display the image, that is an issue with the people writing the software code not keeping up with the changes in hardware.

In the past year or two, most displays have switched to the 16:9 and 16:10 wide aspect ratios while most web content is still written for the 4:3 old style aspect ratio. Eventually, software developers will catch up with cusrrent hardware.

Verify your LCD Display Print Width setting is set wider than your actual label width. The printer will only print to the width of the PRINT WIDTH setting. Also verify any driver or software settings as these override your printer settings.
