    I dont know if this is a hardware or driver issue. I have all the updated drivers for my graphics card, and Im running XP pro. When I run my monitor at 85 refresh, at 1024x resolution, these little greay lines appear to "run" up the screen". Also, whenever I close or open any window, the desktop shrinks and grows from top bottom and sides. I have all windowsupdate updates, and have no virus'. Any suggestions?

    Or ur monitir cant handle either the refresh rate or the resolution. Its more likely to be the monitor if the shape of the picture is changing.

    its at 60, and it works fine. However, the growing and shrinking of the desktop still happens everytime I open a new window.

    Have you tried it on another computer or another monitor on that computer? It could be the monitor.
