View Full Version : Failed monitor component?

04-19-05, 02:49 AM
It appears my secondary computer's monitor has finally choked. These horizontal distortion lines jiggle in an unstable manner and the entire picture jerks up and down during start up. Calms down a little after ten minutes of use.

Blown capacitor? Damaged CRT? Anyone had this issue before? Easy $100 repair job or toss into the garbage?

If it's your second system, try swapping monitors. I have seen video cards cause that.
