Graphic Card and Screen Resolution

[Monday, 09 October, 2006]

There was a single black line across near the top of my screen. I tried to switch windows and later off and on the power of the monitor but every way seemed pointless.

A few days ago, there were a couple of times when the whole screen turned black for a second. I suspected my graphic card was having problems.

This time, I told my elder brother who asked me to change the resolution of my screen from “1280 x 1064” to “1152 x 864” pixels and the black line disappeared.

He told me he did not even use such big resolution even though his graphic card was better after he realised the performance would be less efficient. As for my old computer, the graphic card was much lousier and therefore could not take it.

A lesson was learnt.
