    Hi all,

    I replaced an LCD monitor recently because it would have these faint horizontal images that would occur anytime a window was open. The faint lines would be a continuation of the top and bottom of the open window(s), continuing across each side of the screen. It was an old monitor so after a cursory look at settings, I just replaced w/ a new one. However, now the new one does it! I changed refresh rates, resolution and tried to update the driver all to no avail. Has anyone come across this problem before?

    Thanks!

    Have you tested either the old or new monitor on a different computer with a different video controller card?

    Are you using an analog (VGA of DVI-A) connection or digital (DVI-D or HDMI) between computer and monitor?
