Monitor problems.. in Off-Topic Rampancy Posted January 9, 2011 Yes, almost definitely software related. When a monitor fails, you get craziness jumbled nonsensical picture. I assume you are using Windows, go to the System Restore utility, pick a previous date in which it did work and restore it to that point. Beyond that, you'd really have to delve into what and when you installed prior to the mess up. I would say it is a driver issue, and it still 'maybe' the case. If restore points don't work, 'maybe' doing a driver rollback may work. Sometimes driver upgrades don't go so well (and that may have been upgraded behind your back, or via MS Update). I would try installing a driver from elsewhere. For instance, if you installed the driver directly from Nvidia, you can try one from Microsoft update, or a more 'universal' driver from Nvidia, for example. And if that doesn't work, take a hammer to it.
