Ok, I have an hp pavilion zd8000, the monitor that it says in the display properties is an ATI mobility radeon x300.
Starting about 5 days ago, in Firefox, and open windows like "my documents" or "display properties" or whatever, I see horizontal, tiny, rippling (moving) lines. This is constant. However, on certain webpages, there will be a few lines all the way across the screen, horizontally, in varying widths, and as I scroll up or down the page these horizontal lines scroll up and down too. So it doesn't seem like it's the screen, because it isn't stationary or specific to certain areas..but I have no idea. Also, when I watch movies or when windows is starting up I don't notice a problem at all. It could just be because this is only really noticeable on white/light colors/backgrounds....
This may or may not be related to my problem: Last week I plugged a really old monitor into my computer to use as a second monitor, and I attached them through display properties. I don't think my computer was messed up right after I disconnected the old monitor, but within a few hours of disconnecting it is when this started happening. I've looked at my display setting and tried to update my driver..but to be honest I have no clue.
Any suggestions? Is my laptop dying?
