Ok, so I have a flat screen monitor and recently there has been a thick strip on the tight side of my monitor that changes colours. Im assuming its some form of connection problem but im not sure for certain what exactly it is. Is there some way to fix it or am I going to have to buy a new one? Ive checked the connections from the monitor and they are fine and I dont have another monitor to test :whistling:

Is the cable from the monitor to the computer removeable? If so you could try replacing the monitor cable. It could be a bad screen though.... if that's the case you should just buy a new one.

Unplug the cable from the back of the computer; the LCD should start it's self-test (someting will bounce around usually saying "self test" or "no input" or "no cable detected"). If the problem is still seen during the self-test, it's a bad LCD.

If not, try swapping out the cable like suggested, and upgrading to the latest graphics card drivers.
