    Odd problem with monitor; When using Microsoft Works and a few other programs, I get thin dark greyish horizontal lines across screen that go up and down the screen at probably--but just guessing here--the screeen refresh rate.

    Annoying, and am wondering what's causing it -- any ideas? Had monitor since January 2006, problem started about a month ago.

    Here's NVIDIA settings I'm using:

    GeForce MX100/200 EGA/VGA card (32 Mb)
    DirectX 9

    Screen Resolution: 1280x1024
    Screen Refresh: 60Hz (Have tried other values available -- 70, 72, 75 Hz -- still get the lines)
    Color Quality: 32-bit (Also get lines with 16-bit)
    Image setting: Performance (Get lines with High Performance, & Quality Settings)
    Antialiasing: Application controlled
    Anioisotropic filtering: Application controlled

    Digital Vibrance: Off

    NVIDA Desktop Manager Version 61.76; Driver Versions: 4.14.10.6176)
    =========================
    Had theory I might be pushing the Video card too much & need to drop resolution down to say, 1024x768 or less.

    Theory #2: Could it be electrical interference causing it? Haven't moved anything on the desk though....

    Well, if it only happens while you're using certain applications then it's most likely a software / driver issue.
    Perhaps try some different driver versions?

    The problem seems most noticeable with Microsoft Works, but have noticed it to somewhat lesser extent on Word2000, IE5.5. As Im typing this I can see a slight flicker.

    Drivers for Vidcard are about 10 months old; they were installed on this drive after a HD crash in which I lost everything on the Drive except Windows 98SE.

    comp.'s BIOS is the original Award BIOS 6.0a it came with.
