    I have a Sony Trinitron 19" flatscreen (not thinscreen) CRT monitor.

    When I switch into lower resolutions like 800x600 and 640x480 I notice thin horizontal lines.

    I've attached an image to show what I mean

    The left side is taken with a 320 x 240 resolution and the second image with a 1024 x 760 resolution.

    You will notice that the lower resolution has many little horizontal lines between each row of pixels. I'm wondering why this is.

    I couldn't get the image up because of my filter, so here it is in this message.

    NOTE: These image were taken with a digital camera at around the same distance from the monitor.
    As indicated in my first post, they are just pictures of a section of my screen at different resolutions.

    The one on the right is NOT a zoomed in version, but just a different resolution.

    that's just how a trinitron works. that's how most, if not all flat crt's work. mine, for instance, has tiny vertical black lines.

    [edit]btw, what kind of camera did you use to take that picture? must be pretty good to get that close-up detail.

    Do you know why it has to put black horizontal lines in at lower resolutions but doesn't at higher ones?

    thats how the monitor works. I am guessing that it is a flat crt, correct? The do not perform well at low resolutions.
