Problems with my CRT...?

Experts please help: I have green blue and red lines that appear on my monitor at regular intervals. I've spent a little time on Google, but haven't yet found a satisfactory solution to this problem. Maybe my monitor cable is bad? Interference? Any advice is appreciated...

Re: Problems with my CRT...?

The quickest test is to move monitor to another system and if it happens at new system, monitor is bad. If that's the case, you probably can't fix it, but repair is possible is cost effectivem, usually not though. Otherwise, you video card is defective and it needs replacement or if on-board video, get a video card and install, but disable on-board connection via the bios. if the monitor is bad, new ones aren't as expensive they were awhile ago, plus maybe time to move on to LCD.

good luck -----Willy

Lines - horizontal, or vertical?

Nice, crisply edged VERTICAL lines of any color usually indicate a video card problem, or a video memory problem.
