My 17" LCD Monitor has streaks running through it, When i watch videos, It looks like blue lightning, It's only a couple months old, I never leave it on long either, I am using an 7500 All in wonder graphics card, Could this be my trouble?

I can't offer you any help, but you probably need to post more info to get better results.

-What make/model LCD screen do you have?
-Are you using the DV out or the VGA out?
-Does it only happen during videos?
-Does it only happen with MPEG's? (i.e. MPEGS use a direct to screen technology which is different than playing your basic AVI or Quicktime movies)

It's my monitor, I tried it on my friends computer, And the same thing happens, I took it back to the store i got it from, And it will be two weeks before i get a new one.

It was a CTX 17" LCD, I guess you get what you pay for.
I did read a review of this in PC world Mag. They said it was a really goood bargian. OH! Well live & learn.
