Ok this is really weird I am sitting at the puter and poof my whole screen goes into one little line near the top of moniter ... it is approx 3-4 mm wide the line is ..... this has happened a few times but I dont seem to pinpoint a cause ie like a certain game in a certain place .... just happened and I was reading a web page... anyone have any ideas ??????
Sounds like...

...a video card or monitor issue to me. Try degaussing the monitor and reseating the video card. Also if you can borrow another monitor plug it in for a few days to see if it happens again. It would help to eliminate cause.

No noises at all no over heating , no foul smells from moniter or tower ... yes maybe if I use a diff moniter for a few days would allow me to find out if it is the moniter or the card ..... I will reseat the card ..... I am about to buy a new moniter anyways this one is getting a little old so maybe I should do that in a hurry huh!!
