Thanks for the link. I installed DirectX, restarted, and ran the test. It says "No Problems Found. But as you can see, the problem hasn't gone away.
Trust me on this---

I'm almost positive that the monitor is not the problem. The lines act differently when windows is starting up, and sometime disappear altogether in iTunes. Also, when I press the "auto configure" button on the monitor, the line's don't appear within the box that pops up.
To my untrained eyes...it would appear that maybe the video card is on the fritz.
Uninstall/reinstall the video card/chipset drivers yet?
Change monitors to see if it's a video source problem or a monitor problem?
Check Event Viewer for errors that might impact?

The problem is on a Dell desktop computer. It's a few years old. I just plugged the desktop monitor into my laptop, and the screen was fine. So the monitor is definitely NOT the problem. Thanks for the comment.
Something similar happened to me on a laptop. Every time i moved the screen (like opened or closed the lid) the screen would go all buggy. It turned out to be a moniter problem. I had to send in the computer and have the LCD replaced. If this is a desktop, plug in a different moniter to see if it works. If its a laptop, try plugging in an external moniter or plug it into a TV or something. If it is not doing it on other moniters then it's your monitor that is broken.
hope i helped
