A couple months ago I replaced my CRT monitor with an LCD. (HP LP 2065 20") At that time I began seeing strange things on the screen. When I wiggled the mouse to wake up the screen, the bottom blue taskbar looked like a gray stone wall. The word SACHS appeared to be "carved" into the "wall" where the start button would normally be. It has happened several times since then. Sometimes the wall will just go away when I move the mouse over it. it usually goes away in chunks and then disappears when I launch a program. I will attach a photo that I took of it.

The other thing that started happening was waking the computer up to find a blue screen with diagonal lines and horizontal lines that looked like stitching. When this screen appears, I have to hard crash the computer. I figured this might be a video card thing, so I just replaced it yesterday. However, I don't see how the SACHS thing could happen with a video card issue.

It happens totally at random. It could happen twice in one day and then not again for 3, 4, 7 days. It is also totally random whether I will find the blue screen or the SACHS wall.

Any thoughts? The original video card was a 7000 series NVIDIA card and the new one is a 9000 series. I am running XP professional, digital video cable. I know the computer is clean of viruses and malware because I just sent logs from my computer to that forum to make sure I was clean. "Extreme Boy" suggested I try this forum since he had never heard of it.

This one beats the stuffing outta me! I'd suggest keeping the Processes tab of Task Manager open on your Desktop until this occurs. Then make a list of what processes are the most active at that time.

Me too, Mate.

I can only suggest a Faulty Monitor.

Try returning it to where you bought it from for a Warrantee Check?
