    Hi, group!

    For the last week, I have been seeing faint grey lines across my computer
    monitor. I was thinking that my monitor was going, but I tried it on another
    system and it was clean. I am now suspecting the video adapter as the
    culprit. Would it be better to get a new adapter or try to get it repaired?
    It is an ASUS 6800 AGP with 256MB. Could the problem be somewhere else?

    Thanks in Advance !!

    Your best bet is to try another display card. But, if you tried the
    monitor on another computer and it is good, I would assume the card in
    the computer.

    Wait a sec, I assume you don't mean the lines from the stabilizing wires on
    an aperature grill tube? They'll have two faint horizontal lines about 1/3
    of the way up from the bottom and down from the top.

    No, these are faint grey lines that coincide with anything that displays on
    the screen. They go from horizontally wherever there is text or a display.
    You can even see them move if you reposition a window.

    Sounds like my iiyama Vision Master 17 symptoms...
    Needs a good thump when it happens and then it behaves for a while - can't be
    bothered to dismantle it and find the dry joint.

    Something is causing clipping in the video amplifiers, bad capacitors on the
    neck board can cause this, as can a weak CRT or poor shielding.
