If you're seeing black and grey lines that we don't see in the screen capture above, they're happening either in your monitor, VGA cable or the D/A converter output of your video card. To work out which, try your monitor on a different computer or a different monitor on your system, and/or a different cable. Whichever one the fault follows is where the problem is.

Once we know just where the fault is appearing, we can offer suitable advice.

If you do not have one, it will be greyed out
