You could try connecting the LCD to your other system and seeing if it works OK on that one.

If so go into Safe Mode and try reinstalling the graphics card drivers on the system that's playing up.

Make sure that you only use the LCD's default resolution settings on either system - it is not like a CRT monitor with a wide range of resolution capabilities.

If the LCD is still playing up afterwards then get in touch with the retailer
