I have an AOC monitor that does the following when it heats up to a point .
When it is cold and just turned on the picture even exceeds out of the monitor's boundries with 2 or 3 milimeters ,BUT when it heats up ,the picture starts to get 5 or 6 milimeters in to the screen and between the picture and the edge of the screen there is a black line of pixels that are not in use .Its as if the monitor gets shorter in a vertical aspect every time it heats up .
Another strange thing about it is that always when it turns off ,it starts to make a strange fissing noise as if watter is flowing in it o.o .
When its turned on in 85Hz its harder to make the lines straight no matter what controls i use .
Even in lower level i.e..75Hz its still not fully straight . The horizontal line on the top is a bit bended. Its not much ...only 2 or 3 milimeters ,but it stays this way all the time .
The monitor is flat ,so the lines should be straight . I have spend alot of time calibrating it ,but there is no use . The lines are always not fully flat with difrence in 2 or 5 milimeters at best .
Can this meen that this machine is finaly giving up ?

It sounds like it's about to die on you. Is this a flat panel or an old CRT? Can you try another monitor on your computer to make sure it's not the video card?

Yeah its CRT. The strange thing is that the colours are absolutely PERFECT . The contrast and everything is ok . Its just the lines >.< .
I dont have another monitor which is flat here . I suddenly decided to upgrade it and will put a new video ,becouse i need a more powerfull one enyway and when i visit my friend, i might try it on his monitor .

Could this actualy be from the video card o.o ?

Best wishes :thumbsup:

Before you purchase another graphics card, see if you can borrow another monitor to determine if the monitor is the problem.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
