Hi, I am working on an old Dell Dimension 4100 running Win XP Pro. I just upgraded the RAM to 512 MB. Here is the problem, while working on this pc I noticed that it had these streaks running across the monitor. Like there was something wrong with it. So I tell them their monitor is shot but I have an old one about the same age that was just in a closet but was also a Dell monitor. I make the change and put my old monitor that I know worked fine on their pc and it still has the same problem. It doesn't look as bad but still has these streaks going across the screen.
How do I know if it is something like a graphics card(NVIDIA GeForce 256)?
What do you recommend? I have tried updating the graphic card and monitor drivers. It only found an update for the graphic card.
I appreciate any help.
