Anyone know how to fix this? I'm running XP SP2 & a Radeon x800 Pro card on a Viewsonic E90f monitor. Thanks disprob.bmp

and the problem is...? I may just be missing it, but I dont see anything wrong. If its a problem with you monitor, then taking a screenshot won't show us anything. Please be more specific wth the problem you are having.

LOL I thought it was visible, sure is on mine. I have 4 columns of red horizontal lines across my monitor on any dark background. W/my desktop set to white background it's not there. Anything I call up, ie Steam, Xfire, or any games the distortion is constant.

I took some shots w/my digicam, this is what I see. badmonitor%20013.jpgbadmonitor%20012.jpg I've reinstalled my drivers, checked cables. I've taken out my vid card & reinstalled it. I have contacted ATI & Viewsonic customer support. Just thought w/all the knowledge here it would benefit me to check w/the real experts. Thanks

I think Ensign Riles may be in the same boat as you, but I'm not sure. Have you [had] any magnetic objects close to your monitor? These can screw up the magnets inside the electron gun inside a CRT monitor, causing them to do stuff like that. Obviously since it's red lines, it's the red electron gun which is causing the problem. I can't think of any way to fix this, and I don't think anyone could do it for you - the cathode ray tube is a vacuum, and the electron guns are inside it. It's also a sealed glass cover, so you'd have to break it open and climatise the tube to repair it which is suicide. I haven't seen much of this kind of problem, so wait to see if anyone has a fix, but I think you'll need a new monitor to get rid of it.

This one computer at my school had the same exact problem. I believe Reven is right when he says that you'll need a new monitor. Sorry 'bout that :( If you have any spare monitors around the house, you can always try them to see if the problem is with every monitor, or just that one.

I had the same problem with my View Sonic G71f+. Its caused by some magnetic thing you had near it like Ghost said. You need a new monitor.

I don't think it is the monitor because you CAN see it in the top picture, which is a screenshot of his desktop and not a photo of his monitor. If it were a problem with his monitor you would not be able to see the distortion in the screenshot.

If you have already tried reinstalling the drivers and reseating the card, you might want to try the old remove the side of the case and put a house fan next to it trick to see if the problem is your video card overheating.

Yeah, I can clearly see the horizontal lines on the screenie. Maybe it's a problem with your color depth. Try reducing it or altering your resolution, that may help, although I confess I have no idea what the cause of the problem is. And next time, post a JPEG instead of a Bitmap. At 1024x768 that thing's friggin' huge. It took about a minute to show up on my DSL! Think of the 56k'ers.

That would only result in a problem in Windows though, and his screen is showing problems all the time.
