    Do you have access to another monitor? If so, try it. If the same thing happens you can be pretty sure it's the card.
    Another thing, change the Refresh rate and see it that helps. Display Properties>Settings> Advanced.

    Thanks for the reply i tried the refresh rate and the higher i go the more it flashes the line at the top but as soon as i go back to 60 hz (the original setting) it returns to normal and the bar appears at random times for random amouts of time?:confused:

    Then try another monitor. If necessary, carry your PC in to a local shop after calling them about this. They would likely test your machine on a different monitor for free.
    We would.
