I have a Samsung sync master 21 inch LCD and a Samsung laptop that has a vga, and hdmi out. I've been using the monitor for almost a year now with another computer hooked up through DVI and it looked great. No, since I moved into a smaller space, I have my laptop hooked up to it through a vga cable. The monitor itself has ports for both, so an adapter is not needed. However, now I am seeing this horizontal ripple effect down the monitor. This never happened when I used dvi. Is this an effect of VGA? I've never seen it before on monitors I've had in the past. It is less noticeable on lower resolutions, but it is still there.
I'm wondering if it's worth my buying an hdmi-dvi cable to use the hdmi port on my laptop for the out, instead of the vga. Any ideas as to the cause of this, or another possible solution?
Thanks for the help.
