I've been having this problem for QUITE some time. Grey/shaded lines across monitor at all times.

Thought it was my 21" Dell monitor -- and since puter was "old" got a new one. Having unrelated problems with new one and forced to go back to old one. Replaced monitor with new Westinghouse 17' flat panel. SAME, IDENTICAL problems with it. I'm assuming the graphics card is bad?? This puter is running Win 98 and I REALLY need to get it up and running for a week or more and use as back up. What card should I buy to correct problem

HELP PLEASE!!!

Have you tried re-installing the drivers for the video card

Does the monitor have any software which needs to go on

No! No software that I'm aware of. The monitor worked great for a few years then began to "streak". I've downloaded drivers, but the ones I have ON the system are newer than any I could find.

What type graphics card would you recommend?? It's an older PC running Win98 -- Pentium III

These may be calibration lines, check your manuals for any instructions related to calibration.
