HP Color Monitor is banding or streaking

By rchoron ·
My monitor has suddenly started to have black transparent horizontal bnads running accross the screen. It's gotta be either the video card conking out, or the monitor? Although my son has recently installed several games on the computer. Could thathave done anything? It's very annoying and I hope you can help. Thanks.

HP Color Monitor is banding or streaking

This sounds very much like the monitor is experiencing a hardware component failure inside. Best suggestion is to borrow a monitor and see if the problem still exists.

Good luck

Thanks, but I tried that and it does the same thing with another monitor. I'm thinking it's either a video card or maybe a game my son installed the other day. Thanks for trying.

next best thing my friend, re-install your video drivers, and then update Microsoft's DirectX driver's (Many times a game's install will overwrite without checking your current version of directX)

DirectX V 8.0 is available here:

Best of luck....
