    hey!

    I'm experiencing ghostly, faint grey lines flickering up and down my screen. They aren't very visible, and after a while you don't notice them, but I'm pretty sure they must be rather bad for one's eyesight.

    Any idea what gives?

    My monitor's refresh rate already configured to 85mhz.

    thanks!

    Sounds like possible interference from some other device ( be that speakers , wireless lan..etc..), monitor cable close to some electromagnetic source, bad monitor cable/connection, video card problem or the monitor is just dying
    So check and see if the monitor cable/connector is ok. Check for possible devices that might be close to the monitor or cable thus giving interference. Boot windoze in SAFE mode and see if you still have the same problem. If you don't start to look like some windoze/ video driver problem.
