While running certain games in Low-Res, typically 800X600 and 640X320, very faint but, annoying scan lines appear on the monitor, and I can't figure out the cause, should I buy a new monitor or is it the graphics card, or perhaps the refresh rate? I am using a GeForce 6150LE Onboard graphics system. I am tech savy but can't figure out the cause of this. Please help me out :whistling:

Are there any updated drivers out there for the display? Does this happen with all games, or just one in particular?

Happens with GTA SA, Halo, and Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

When did this start? Have you made any changes to the system recently? I don't know anything about refresh rates, but why don't you post them anyway, so that someone else can help with that. :whistling:
