I have an IBM flatscreen monitor. i was doing my usual stuff on the computer, nothing out of the ordinary, then all of a suden, my monitor blinks, and there are black stripes going down my monitor. nothing's wrong with my desktop because i took a print screen and pasted it in paint and there were no black stripes. the stripes are also there during startup.
Hi. Did this just happen today? Have you made any changes to the system recently? Have you tried unplugging the monitor's power as well as it's connection to the computer and then restoring it at a later time?
Also, if you're comfortable opening the case, you might open it up (afetr unplugging power and such of course) and making sure that your video card is in its slot nice and tight, but not too tight. Don't force it. Please note that before putting your hands in the case, that once you open the side panel up, you need to put your hands on the inner metal frame to ground the static electricity from your hands.
