I have I guess, an older model Gateway computer. But I have a 22" HP monitor. I am wondering if it is possible to put in a new video card, or whatever, to help it work better. Sometimes the monitor gets real fuzzy, then maybe piles of lines if I don't shut the puter down. Maybe I need more video memory, have no darn idea. Nor, how to put more video memory in here :thumbsup:
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There is no way to add more video memory unfortunately. Trying a new video card may work, but it could be the monitor as well.

Also do youhave anything near the monitor that draws a lot of electricity? Electrical currents can affect a monitor.

Hmm, thought another video card might help, wasn't sure. The only electrical stuff near the monitor is the outlet it's plugged into. So, will change the outlets. Electric here is screwed up. Have the puter speakers next to it, but heard that was ok. If not, will move them too.
Thank you very much.

Just turn the speakers off and see if the problems continue. It could very well be the monitor or the video card
