LCD monitor problem.

  hiwatt 19:22 PM 22 Jan 13

Hi folks. I've got an LG E2260s HD LCD monitor.I've recently got a new computer running windows 7 and although text and pictures etc appear very clear sometimes on a clear background or on the windows 7 welcome page I can see faint fuzzy vertical lines?This didn't happen with my older xp computer so I don't think it's the monitor.I have updated the drivers for intel display but not for the monitor.Does anyone have any idea what can be causing this?I've checked the cables and they're ok?Any help is much appreciated.

Try this - right click on desktop - select Personalize - Display (bottom left) - Adjust Resolution (try lowering the resolution) to see if it makes any difference - Apply - OK. If no difference then reverse procedure.

No it didn't make any difference.In device manager under monitors my monitor(LG E2260)is listed as analog?Would an HD LCD monitor connected with a VGA cable be analog?

Yes VGA is analogue.

If it's full HD, I'd be surprised if a VGA connection would support it. I'd have thought you needed to be looking at DVI or HDMI.

Sounds like faulty Graphics card or faulty onboard graphics. I would be inclined to take the PC back and ask them to check it out on one of there monitors

You should use a HDMI cable. Both your PC and monitor should have HDMI sockets.

There's only one output on the monitor and it's a d-sub(VGA).These "lines" I'm talking about are very faint and really only happen when something is loading.Apart from that there is no problems at all.I just notice these very faint lines in the "background" from time to time?Thanks.

Am I right in saying if my monitor doesn't have an HDMI socket(only VGA)then it isn't HD?I was sure when I got it it was HD but not so sure now?

And just to confuse things see here enter link description here Don't know if the same applies to a Monitor.

I'll need to look out the manual etc but I'm 99% sure it was sold/advertised as an LCD HD monitor.
