Hello and thank you for using FixYa\015\012Top 3 things that could be causing the problem.\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. The monitor itself is bad
  2. \015\012
  3. The video cable is bad
  4. \015\012
  5. Your video card is bad
\015\012Try swapping out monitor with a known good one if you have a spare or purchase an new (If this is not the issue most store will allow you to return them, ask your local retailer)\015\012
\015\012If you are still having the distortion replace the video cable that plugs from your computer to the monitor (If you end up buying a new monitor it will come with a cable)\015\012
\015\012If you have done this then I would replace your video card.\015\012If you are using on board video (Remove your computers side panel, now compare where the video cable plugs in to the inside of your computer. If it the plug is going into the large circuit board then you are using on board video these can't be replaced unless you replace the entire motherboard(large circuit board)\015\012
\015\012So it would be cheaper to buy a video card\015\012If your computer was purchased before 2005 it should have an AGP graphics slot\015\012looks like the on in this picture\015\012http://attachments.techguy.org/attachments/106708d1179977181/motherboard-agp-slot.jpg\015\012
\015\012If it was purchased after 2005 then you should have a PCI-e slot\015\012http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0c/PCI_und_PCIe_Slots.jpg/800px-PCI_und_PCIe_Slots.jpg\015\012
\015\012You can purchase a video card from your local retailer or online\015\012http://www.newegg.com\015\012www.tigerdirect.com\015\012
