    Vertical Lines.. Any ideas?

    I woke up this morning and powered on my monitor. I come to find some weird vertical lines. They are spread out and well I can't figure out why I get them? I installed the monitor drivers so we will see if I get them again, but its weird!

    I have a GladiacMX

    Are those vertical lines only on the sides of the picture?

    How thick are they?

    Sounds more like a monitor prob, than G card prob. What monitor do you have, could be running too cold or something?

    It only happens in windows ME and when the monitor goes into standby. I left it on without the standby with a screensaver and no lines. I wonder if my monitor doesn't like the vid card or visa versa. Anyhow ill just turn it off when I am going away from it for a long time, otherwise ill just use the screensaver.
