I have the above monitor and about 3/4 weeks ago I awoke it to find that I had 4 vertical yellow bars about 25 mm wide and a number of horizontal lines 4 mm thick. It disappeared for a while and reappears on occasion but seems to be doing so more frequently. Any thoughts? Is it on the way out?

Might not be the monitor.

I would be looking at the graphics card first. Are all the cables/plugs fastened in tightly? Have you tried taking out the card and reseating it?

silly question but how do I reset the graphics card?

he means reseating it. you do this by opening the case and push the card into the slot to make sure it is making a good connection. i would think it is the card as corruptions like are general caused by them. what type is it and how old.. also what precisely are you doing when this corruption occurs

I posted the following and received advice that my Graphich card may be at fault. I have checked all connections and tried reseating the card but still ge t the same problem. Is there a diagnostic program to check the card?

if you have access to another monitor try it for a week. if nothing happens then it is not the monitor
