vertical band on compaq tft8020?

  stevo28 14:19 19 Mar 2008

i have a compaq tft8020 monitor;the unit is a bit ancient,but still working ok. It has developed a vertical band approx 1.5" wide from the top to bottom of the screen; about a quarter width from the left side of the screen. I would appreciate any help as to possible fault/solution. Thanks.

Me too. In my case, four vertical bands, each 35mm, 35 mm apart. Switching computer and screen on cold, the screen displays as normal, but bands appear after about three minutes. Screen, PC or driver problem?

Have you tried checking all connections from PC to monitor and re-seating your graphics cards? And you could try re-seating RAM as well.
