I have a dell 866 pII. I am running 98 se, I have a trinitron 19'. For some reason in the last week my monitor has these streaks in it. They run horizontally and when I scroll up or down they move with the text. I have not done any troubleshooting becuz I know nothing about monitors. Where should i begin and what the heck should I do? Is there any diagnostics software I can use?

thank you!

try plugging your monitor into a different computer. if it still does the same thing than it is the monitor. if it does not do the same thing than start with the vid card

What do these lines look like?

dont confuse them with the 2 lines that appear on all trinitron monitors, there are 2 lines, about 6" apart on all trinitron screens, (thats how you know its trinitron). They are 1 pixel in height and span the screen. The way it works is that you sacrifice those 2 lines for a sharper picture.

hope this helps.
