Hi all, I have gotten some problems and questions that wanna be asked.
1. My desktop LCD monitor have been experincing some problems these few days as shown in the picture below. This is just a small snapshot of it where there are lines all over the screen as soon as the monitor is on... Is this a sign that my monitor life span is up?

Anyway I have been using it for about 3-4 years. Last time only gotten a few lines at the screen, but whenever it starts up the next time, the screen is back to normal. This time it has gotten worst...

2. Does getting a monitor the bigger the inch, the more power it consume?

3. Lastly roughly how long can a 17 and 19 inch LCD monitor lasts?

Thanks alot! Really need this answers...

Have you tried the monitor on a different computer, or another good monitor on your computer?

The reason I ask is that the image is mangled, but the mouse cursor is unaffected. If the monitor is causing the image distortion, the mouse cursor should be equally distorted.

Swapping as above will prove for sure, but it looks to me like the problem is in the video card, generating a faulty image possibly due to damage from overheating. A hardware mouse cursor can still be inserted into the faulty image, and appear completely normal as per your photo.
