    if I move my hardware acceleration rate off the none possition then my screen develops horizontal lines and then my computer freezes up, was told possibly it was the monitor, still does it with new one.

    What type of video card do you have?????

    Have you removed the video card and tried to reinstall it, along with new drivers and reinstall directx

    That's an older card.
    If you have the drivers for it do the following.

    Guess your best bet would be to remove it from device manager, reboot, let windows reinstall it.

    so you think it is the graphics card, was going to go buy one tomorrow, and just wanted to know if this was the problem. like I said before was told before it was the monitor, which was going out and replaced it to find it was not the problem all test say that directx is working fine, no problems, no conflicts

    My thought is the video card, but I could be wrong.
    I really don't see how the monitor could cause it, it has nothing to do with hardware acceleration, the video card does
