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?

Are the black stripes always there, or are they there only at certain, random times?

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.

i don't think i can open it... it's one of those thing flatscreen monitors, and to whoever asked about the stripes being random, no, they're there all the time, even during startup.

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific I meant the computer case
