    Well, ive had this monitor for a month or so and its worked great till now. I shut it off, went to bed, woke up and turned it on and this happened

    The screen still works just fine, everything is displayed right but it is duplicating the top 4 inches of the display on the bottom of the screen. Its not 100% overlay though, about 10% and the overlay flickers like crazy and its a bit jumpy. There is also a messed up vertical line the size of a pixel about 2/3rds in from the left side of the screen.

    I figure its just a piece of crap monitor and its broke, but before i get a replacement i guess i can ask here if anyone has any suggestions on how to possibly fix it.

    First, check the Video Cable make sure it is securely plugged in at both ends. If it is and the symptoms are the same, see if you can borrow a different monitor to connect to your computer, if it too displays the same problem, then the problem is with in the computer itself, most likeley a problem with the video card.

    Well, kinda looking for something not of the obvious for an answer here lol.

    I've already switched the cords around, checked if it did it on DVI and VGA and hooked it up to my laptop. Still does it no matter what i do..

    Its really odd though, if i leave the screen unchanged there is a pattern to the flickering and stuff which really puzzles me. When the pattern resets for a split second it goes back to normal then starts up again.
