Make sure your monitor plug is securely inserted. This happened to me once when I moved my computer, I was just about to buy a new monitor when a friend suggested I check the plug first. Sure enough, I only needed to push the plug in properly.

Your monitor is probably getting old. Best go out and get a new one before this one konks out altogether. It can happen in a flash, and then you are without a computer!

Vertical stripes of color on a screen is usually a result of bad video memory. If it is an LCD and the lines are thin white or black lines then it is usually a bad solder joint on the LCD board that causes a row of pixels to not display.

If any problem occurs in video drivers then stripes will appear on your monitor. The another reason is if the video card is dying then also the stripes occur on you screen.

I love how we talk about electronics "dying." Shouldn't these things just work or not work? What is this in-between state?  add a comment

Strips on a monitor display are normally caused by either having a video screen out of sync (adjusted Hz and refresh rate), or a failing video card. On a Windows PC, try going into safe mode and resetting your settings to a default refresh rate or download the correct driver.
