Monitor issues!

Does it do it only when there's a second display connected? Or does it do it regardless? Have you tried another video output if possible? It'd also be helpful to list the processor you have.

i tried attaching the hdmi cable to it, the problem went but the screen is still really bad quality. kinda just given up on it.. went back to my old monitor.

Hi guys, 

this thread is going to be about a monitor problem.

 

So basically, I run two screens, main one is on the right and secondary on the left. I recently upgraded from a 19" to a 22" monitor (rated at HD, so i assume is 1080p - done some research and it also suggests this.). I've connected it through VGA (D-sub and rgb are also other notations i've seen this cable been given), and it has come up with the following issue.

I've orederd a DVI cable for my main monitor, so that I can move across my hdmi to my secondary monitor(the monitor with this issue), this might fix it.

 

it affects the whole bottom of the screen, if i adjust the resolution (i.e to one, and then return it back to the current one) it will sometimes not be there. I have no clue what causes this.

 

resolution its currently running at: 1360x1024
