A few days ago I noticed these blue lines on black backgrounds.

Anyone know whats happening here and why?

Took some photos of it on my mobile phones camera, sorry about the rubbish quality:

Have you tried a new cable? Does it happen in games? Are you using DVI or DVI to VGA? Could be a bad cable.

Tried a different cable, exactly the same still. Also tried the second DVI slot on the video card, same problem. The lines only appear on solid black backgrounds.

Hmm.. have you tried a different monitor? It really looks like a bad connection.
