Monitor or video card?

  1. Have started to see blocks of different color on screen. Similar to spreadsheet grids, a couple of columns wide, running vertically down screen. Can see color in every other "block". What's happening?!

    Swap out the monitor first. What type is it, LCD or CRT? What are you computer specs/video card?

    If you can swap the monitor with another, that will tell you for sure what is wrong. It could be the video card still
