    Hi,

    Looks like heat related problem on two possible areas.
    1. The LCD monitor itself, probably a cold solder or overheated capacitor either in the power supply or inverter circuits; or
    2.
    The video card heatsink isn't getting enough ventilation. If it's got a
    small blower fan, it might be stuck, burned out or simply clogged with
    dust.

    You would need to open the units for a look and see.

    Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

Dear thanks for replying...!

Actually I forgot 2 write that: Fan of the Card and the LED on the card works fine, even I tried keeping my cabinet fully opened.

But this does not work.

Other solutions you can suggest. I'll try them out.

once again thanx

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
