    Black & White Stripes on Monitor

    When I turn on my Asus VN247 LED monitor, after the motherboard displays, the screen is covered in horizontal black & white stripe about 1/2 inch wide. As soon as I start anything, browser, spreadsheet, etc., it works fine. G Topala's SIW says video card (Sapphire 7770) is at 28 C, so overheating seems unlikely. The PC runs continuously for cooperative computing, but nothing requires intensive graphics.

    Asus M4A89GTD Pro motherboard Windows 7 up to date.

    Thanks for any help,
    Pete

    If you have two computers, swap the monitors. See if the problem follows the monitor, or if it stays with the computer.

    If it follows the monitor, then you probably have something wrong with your monitor. If it stays with the computer, then update your video driver, or get a new video card.

    Even if it is the monitor which is bad, you could still try updating the video driver, just on the off chance that that would fix it.

    As a quick fix, you could put a program in your startup folder, so that it would load whenever you start Windows, thereby clearing the error.
