Colored Lines on LCD MonitorLocked
I have a series of different colored vertical lines on my monitor. It began with a single line, then 2, then 8, and so on. Now I have a 1″ band of them to the left side of my screen…it’s getting very difficult to view things. I now have to reduce all of my windows so that I can move them around to see all of the content. The band is not solid, however, and I am able to (barely) see things behind it. I have read several threads, here and elsewhere, that indicate it possibly being a bad graphics card, however, these stripes appear even when the monitor is not plugged into a computer (only powered on). Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this and/or how to fix it?
I have a photo of the screen if anyone might find it helpful – I wasn’t able to attach the photo to this post.
Thank you all in advance for you help!
