The other day,I had open a Mozilla Foxfire 3 Browser,a utorrent torrent server,and a Peer Guardian(2) page;I was playing a CD in my Lite On optical drive,using Win Amp as the player. I'm using XP,with 512 RAM.

Without knowing what could happen,I downloaded my daily update to the Peer Guardian. The sound from the CD got fuzzy for a few seconds,cleared up,and the download completed.

I don't know what was sharing what circuitry from the stuff mentioned above,but I got a thin,red,vertical line on the monitor.

Ten minutes later,it went away. Since then,the line comes and goes. If there is a pattern,I haven't figured it yet.

What,if anything,can I do about it?


Thank you.

Have you tried System Restore or update the video driver?

Thank you.

It appears the system restore took it out.
