Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Lines across screen and other problems....

\015 The quality of the image on the screen as suddenly become very poor. I made no changes that could have caused this as far as I know. The display is a 1701FP and it's performed very well until yesterday morning when the problem started. The problem is difficult to describe but I'll try:\015\0121) Dark text and graphics appear to have bled horizontally in both directions sort of like the output of a poorly-maintained photocopier. Small text is very difficult to read.\015\0122) Some colors (such as red yellow and orange) appear abnormally bright and/or are displayed incorrectly.\015\0123) The screen sometimes has a shimmery appearance as if you are looking at a smooth water surface.\015\0124) also get the faint grey lines across my screen, similar to water ripple........if I highlights something, the grey lines stretch acorss the highlighted portions from one side of the screen to the other\015\012\015\012Tried the automatic reset button on the screen, adjusting resolution, etc... nothing.....\015

The screen has a black background with pulsing multi-colored lines running horizontaly across the screen. I will sometimes see the game logo screen with the producing company and sometimes see the login information very mutted in the background, but for the most part the game does not load beyond the black lined screen. I have updated my video and audio drivers. I have a HP a810n pavilion with upgraded ram. SiS760 I only have problems with newer games and then just a few of those.


Okay, first off I wanted to confirm that this only happens with new games, or do the lines occur all the time? Did this start after you attempted to load a game? If so it could be that your monitor is over clocking meaning that it is trying to refres ... HP Pavilion a810n (PP164AA) PC Desktop
