new computer/old monitor - garbled display
Posted on 1998-04-15
I replaced by 486/WIN 3.1 Packard Bell PC with a custom build CyrixInstead 32Mg RAM WIN 95. I plugged the Packard Bell 1511SL monitor in and get text that is occaisionally garbled. If I highlight the text, it becomes visible and readable, but without highlight - I get either black bars or what looks like UPC code bars across text.
If I pull up text and get some of this, then save and redisplay, these baars/UPC code looking things move.
Do I need to install a specific driver for the montior or what? It's a nice 15 inch, so I don't want to replace it.
