    I occasionally get these blue lines going across the screen. The lines are all over the monitor, but there`s an especially irritating one that`s following my mouse pointer as I speak. It resembles the tail of Halley`s comet, and is a disturbance when trying to WORK on the computer.
    Can anyone tell me what exactly is the problem? Is it my video card, is it the monitor itself, or is it, gulp, the motherboard?

    Well, it's not the motherboard, unless your video card is built in.

    Could be the monitor or the video card.

    Only realy way to be sure is to try a different monitor, or try your monitor on another computer.
