    monitor or video card do you think?

    my dad has a decently older computer (1400 mhz amd) and a 32mb video card. his old monitor was atleast 4 years old and it was a compaq. this year his monitor started flickering and bending inward. you could hit the monitor and it would flicker some more etc and possible fix itself. ive gotten him a new 17" KDS flatscreen and problems still there except they aren't the same problems. this time the screen just turned black and wouldnt come back except after a reboot. another time instead of bending inward the entire screen just shrank equally from all sides of the screen.

    does this sound like a video card problem or a monitor problem? i bought the monitor from office depot and it arrive thru the mail. so possible the monitor is screwy or do you think its the video card in the machine?

    Are you able to test the monitor or video card on another system (one at a time)?

    Yea, that would probably be the only way you could test it. Just use your monitor and video card and swap it around and around and around.

    And if you can't then it seems likely on current evidence that it is indeed the video card, which is cheaper to replace than the monitor at least.
