My 19" monitor went through a brief period where it would have these long diagonal lines, moving in the direction from the top left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner. Usually I would just select Degauss to fix it. It went on for awhile and then just sort of stopped. Then recently, maybe a few weeks ago...I could hear a slight tick inside of the monitor. Now tonight, the lines are back and they're terrible. They go in the same direction, but a lot faster. Right now they are long and thick...then they get thinner and move faster. At first I thought it was just some kind of electrical interference. But the speakers aren't really that close, plus they are off most of the time. Is my monitor about to croak? I think the quality might be bad. It's a Future Power brand. I don't even think they are in business anymore lol.
