Graphic card causing vertical lines?

  1. Could my graphic card cause my monitor to have vertical lines? There are two lines moving upward and it comes and goes, and if I change the re-fresh rate, the higher the res is, the two lines move faster. I forgot that the lines had more after i changed the refresh rate.

    I have done everything I could to get rid of them, like changing my res. on my screen, but the higher the number, the more lines there are. 1024x768 is the one I have now and I have had it like that forever.

    and if I put in a DVD, almost immediately the lines stop, but it doesn't always stop the lines, though.

    Probably yes, but the only certain test is with another monitor.
    Lines like this are commonly caused by interference so make sure you do not have a flourescent tube near you PC that is on the way out, perhaps?
