Having problems with your HP W22 LCD Monitor ?

Screen image appears fuzzy, jumpy and broken up into lines.

\015 HP w22 LCD monitor and HP Media Center m8020n. I've had this system for a year and this is the first time this issue has occured. \015\012\015\012When starting up the computer, the screen image immediately appears as hazy, distorted and jumpy, and it flickers rapidly with obvious 'pixilated' lines breaking down across the breadth of the image. \015\012\015\012If, after I go to a few applications for a couple of minutes such as email, pictures, or anything else, the problem suddenly rectifies itself and the screen appears normal. This occurs everytime I now start it up. \015\012\015\012The monitor says it is functioning properly. The cables are tight. There are no new updates for NVIDIA that I've downloaded. I have only 6.69 GB of 290 GB free on the "C" drive. I don't do gaming or watch TV or many videos.\015

Gardenman13, I would certainly complain to HP about their w22 monitor!! Find out if the units warranty is still valid and can be swapped-out for a REFURBISHED unit. Your w22 shouldn't be hazy, distorted, or flicker for any reason. My best guess is that it (w22) has problems inside with it's "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and electronic ballast circuit called an INVERTER circuit, which could also cause the main "switch-mode-power-supply" to go a little NUTS upon STARTUP!! FYI you are dealing with a technology similar to the curlie-Q CFL screw-in light bulbs. Their ballast's are called CONVERTERs (ac to ac) and are cheaper. Your lanps are thinner and straight, hung on rear of your LCD panel. I hope this was informative. Please rate this on fixya. 12fixlouie
