  1. hi ,
    i have 2 identical hp w2007 flat screen monitors. they are both installed on
    identical gateway 3 yr old PC's with xp. one monitor is upstairs, and mine is downstairs. mine works perfectly .. they one upstairs.. lets call it monitor 1,
    has developed a bright or washed out , bright horizontal line about 4" tall-going across the entire screen.
    ... along with this problem it doesn't have true black ,(more of a black brown faded) on all black screens...
    Mine , monitor 2, is perfect.
    monitor 1, started having issues ,with not holding, a preferred setting.. it wouldn't hold resolution, size or brightness , contrast and other settings.. i have uninstalled the new monitor and software and reinstalled it.. i have tried all the monitor adjustments , i have tried to match resolutions and setting to my perfect monitor 2..nothing works.. from day one , it only had one oddity... there was a white shadow
    around the arrow pointer,cursor, my monitor never had that.. i couldn't even make my pointer/cursor , do that..
    does anyone think it has a burned out
    band " across the monitor? what are these new crystal clear view flat screens like inside? Anyone think there is anything i can do..
    could it be a bad video card.. or just a blown new monitor?
    thanks for all the help.. i can sure use it..

    Either take it in to have it looked at or buy another monitor. If it is under warranty you may be able to have it replaced
