hey, i have GeForce 256 with LCD screen, i know that the problem isn't on the screen because ive connected the screen to another computer and the problem was gone.
from some reason, it's like all the text and windows on my computer are Motion fade, it's being faded to the lines, so it looks like black lines, shadow like.
what can i do to solve it? do i have to buy a new Video card?
please help....
thanks!

Get the latest drivers/flashupdates for your Gforce card AND Screen... If that doesnt help you propably have a defect card, or at least its incompatible with your screen and you will have to get a new one yes...

it's hard to believe that after 2 years something suddenly changed, but maybe there was a defect on the Video Card, because the monitor is 100%.
the problem occur also on the Bios, so i believe it's something with the card, ofcourse it's not Window's problem.

I agree - it sounds like the video card needs to be replaced.
