Hey. Just adding a bit of new info. The white lines down the left side remain, pretty much at all times (although they do go away once in a short while). Over the last couple of weeks, a similar thing has happened a couple of times on the right side of the screen, and now it's doing it in the middle of the screen (just left of the center point). In both cases, it's the same width as the white line issue (about an inch wide), going from the top to the bottom of the screen), but these ones are solid, and switch colour, from black to grey, sometimes a flickering rainbow effect.
The poster above mentioned replacing either the video chip or the monitor. Forgive my lack of knowledge, but how hard would it be to replace a video chip, and how much would one cost?
Based on the description, does anyone have a good idea as to whether it would be the video chip, or the monitor (or something else?)
This strip down the middle (which is happening right now), is unbelievably annoying. I'm going to have to do something about it soon. Thanks for reading, and for any suggestions provided.
