I just purchased a new monitor, but am having trouble with the display.

My previous monitor was an LG 22", the new one is a 27" Achieva Shimian.

My motherboard is the Sabretooth Z77, and my video card is the Nvidia 660ti.

The monitor functions perfect, the problem is there's little green lines running horizontally on my monitor! At first I assumed it would have to be a driver issue. I ended up completely uninstalling all of my Nvidia drivers, and doing a clean install with the latest drivers. This did not solve the problem.

When I go to device functions there is an ! on the Nvidia 660ti icon. Device Type - Display Adapters. The device status reads : Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

I had read this prior to doing a clean install with the Nvidia drivers, so I had hoped this was the problem.

When I go to the the Start Menu and then the Device and Printers Tab I see there is no Monitor listed. Now i'm wondering is the problem perhaps that the PC/motherboard is not detecting the new monitor? When I try to go into the Nvidia Settings icon I get the following error : Nvidia display settings are not available. You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU.

I'm pretty stumped here. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

The horizontal lines on the monitor are going to indicate a H/W issue with the monitor itself, not your video card/ motherboard. As for the Nvidia GPU errors you are receiving did you reinstalled the latest drivers for your card?

I don't think it's the monitor itself. I've tried plugging my LG in and it is getting the same lines the new one. As for the drivers, they should be the most current, Nvidia released new drivers 3 days ago.

306.97 WHQL

Very well, typically lines on the monitor suggest errors with the pixels. It could suggest a dying GPU, how old is the card? Have you reseated the card?

I just built the computer 2 months ago. All the parts are new. This problem just started last night. Also, the lines disappear/reappear when they've been scrolled over.

Does the board have on board graphics you can use to test with?
