This happened because you set your subwoofer up to close to your monitor, same thing happend to me. you should have your subwoofer about 2 feet away from the monitor. this problem can be fixed at local computer shops , i just got mine replaced for free though.

Hobo, The chances are good that it?s the monitor; however, there are a few things you can check: -Try connecting the monitor to another computer, if the problem follows. If it doesn?t try the rest of these suggestions, if not skip to the bottom. -Remove the VGA connector from your PC and inspect the pins to make sure none are bent over or corroded. -Try replacing the VGA cord that connects the LCD with the computer. -Try opening your PC, removing and reinstalling the video card assuming it isn?t built into the motherboard. This monitor has a three year warranty from Dell so I wouldn?t try opening the monitor case until you call them. Even if you suspect it is call them up anyway, on more than one occasion I?ve called Dell about a problem with an out of warranty PC only to find out there was a unadvertised replacement program. So call it can?t hurt. If its out of warranty then depending on your comfort level you can either try to fix it or take it to the local repair shop. Usually they will do an eval for about $35. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

This is either loose cable connection or faulty LCD. Try and take your screen apart. It's pretty easy normally get rid of all the screws and take plastics apart. Look for loose cable connection and resit any visible connectors. If this isn't working you more likely need new monitor. Good Luck

LCD monitor have Vertical lines and black colour become greenish

normally the 19" resolution can support up to 1280*1024, but if it comes with vertical lines in full screen, it might indicate the panel is no longer to work and probably it's time to replace new one.

LCD 19" Samsung - one half od display has yellow vertical lines

This is surelly a internal failure in the LCD monitor. one of these 2 problems occured. Both of them will however require some profesional service repairs (if they even are possible) 1. You may have a faulty connection between the main board of the display and the LCD pannel. Even if only one wire or one singe pin isn't connected properly the results are pretty spectacular (weird lines on the display, lack of image or weird patterns appearing and so on) 2. The video controller chipset on the mainboard (inside the monitor) is broken and needs to be replaced (however it is a small chance you will find a replacement). I'm sorry if this isn't helpfull but the nature of the problem makes the diagnostic easy but the solving of this problem pretty hard. Good luck.
